The film starts off with a professional sniper aiming at a target and taking his shot. Semma Gethu. I even wished, Vikrant be the hero and Udhay didnt even existed. The absence of Santhanam clearly shows as there were less fun moments. Udhay cannot handle comedy himself as he cant emote even at gun point. He has improved a lot but he still looks lost, IMHO.

The story is that a group hire a sniper to kill a scientist. How this sniper plans to kill him is kept to the minimum. And love, songs and other stuff takes center stage and gets boring. Everything that happens does not have a proper reason and it irritates you. There is no chemistry between Amy and Udhay. And she disappears every now and then and gives an entry for a couple of songs. There are a couple of fights that was well choreographed. That was the best part and the next best was the interval. I badly needed one.

1st half was really slow. 2nd half was a bit better. Udhay had this constipated sturdy look throughout the film. Amy looked a bit odd in the dialogue portions but looked pretty in the songs. She had no role to play. Sathyaraj was good but even his role was not an interesting one. I wished the director focussed on a story and screenplay. Music was pretty good but there are no hummable songs. Cinematography was good. Though the runtime is less than 2 hours, the film still dragged.

Overall, Gethu has nothing new to offer. It does not even have a solid story or performances that makes you go awe. Take this one before you wind up. After the hero's dad gets a conditional bail for a murder trial, he breaks into a foreign location duet song with the heroine. I would have walked out of the song but fortunately Amy looked pretty and I had to sit back.
