“Al Vijay sticks to the cliched route.”
Review Idhu Enna Maayam & earn 20 DM Points.*
What usually happens in all the romantic movies in Indian cinema? Both hero and heroine see each other but suddenly they part away due to ego clashes or due to a trivial argument--of course, they will join together with a melodramatic climax with rain and thousand pieces of violin playing in the background.
Well, director AL Vijay's Idhu Enna Maayam exactly followed the above said pattern and we couldn't see anything new with the treatment and the only solace is Nirav Shah's crystal clear cinematography which aesthetically captures the landscape of Kochi and also the cute, Keerthi Suresh who makes her Tamil debut with this film.
Arun (Vikram Prabhu) and Maya (Keerthy Suresh ) are lovers, they spilt away because the latter hides a secret from the former which leads to an embarrassing moment. Years later, Arun meets Maya but this time he is in a situation to make a plan to make sure that she falls for another guy called Santhosh (Navdeep). The climax tells us whether Arun and Maya reunite again or not!
Vikram Prabhu looks smarter in the movies, thanks to his uber cool look and Nirav Shah's cinematography. Keerthy Suresh emotes well and she is also comfortable with the language which is a rare quality for usual Tamil heroine.
The real problem with Idhu Enna Mayam is not the actors but the age old, predictable story line and uninterestingly screenplay which tests our patience.
Despite having good musician like GV Prakash and excellent cinematographer like Nirav Shah, Vijay has apparently failed to give a feel good romantic film instead he has given us the old wine in polished bottle.
