Rom-com is some genre that has turned into a curse as far as the going of Tamil Cinema is concerned. It has not just been misconstrued as a genre that gives you 'minimum guarantee' but also a genre that is being misunderstood for 'feel good'.
Hero and his friend living a uber-cool life, hero speaking punch dialgoes and one liners based on love failures and girl mentalities. A completely distrught flashback that does nothing more than consuming time and a love track between hero and heroine that makes no sense whatsoever. But still, the director tries to make audience feel emotional, by inserting a couple of melodramatic/tamil serial stuffs towards the end.
Is this what directors feel as the formula to get to that 'minumum guarantee' formula? If so, then this movie is one big slap on all those faces who feel a script with shallow writing but some good cast and the so-called youth pleasing dialogues can very well click amongst the audience.
"Idhu Namma Aalu" was 140 odd minutes of electrocution to be very honest. Performances barring Nayanthara and Soori don't even deserve a mention. Some neat camera work and cheeky editing thrown into the bin and Director Pandiraj is the one who got to take the credits for all this mess. I don't know how long he's going to stride on the success of "Pasanga". Ever since, he has been making nothing other than a mockery out of audience sense with every film of his, barring a mere average outing called "Kathakali" in between.
