“Direction, screenplay, performances and camera; everything in this film is just average! Only the chemistry between Siddharth and Amala Paul makes it worth a one-time-watch.”
The short film with the same title, directed by amateur film maker Balaji Mohan, made rounds in famous social networking sites and YouTube, creating enough buzz to make its entry into the big screen. But the obvious problem in expanding a short film into a full length feature film can be analogous with that of setting a tiny thumbnail sized image as our laptops desktop wallpaper. The wallpaper would lose its charm irrespective of how beautiful the thumbnail was.
The director had a crispy and engaging screenplay for the short film, but the problem was that he tried to use the same for its full length counterpart too, which had let him down big time.
The story was more of a monologue by Sidharth, explaining the intricacies of love and relationship, breakups and stuff like that. The story moved back and forth in time and was confusing at times. What was targeted to be a feel-good romantic story, ended up being a half-baked affair without any fizz.
Sidharth was in almost every frame. His chemistry with Amala Paul was good enough, but the problem was that neither of them delivered a knock-out performance. Every scene was either a romantic interlude or the usual cat and mouse affair, which became sick after a while. Sidharth explaining the audiences on the strange and hackneyed qualities of male and female every now and then was boring to say the least.
Even though there were no solid performances from anyone, the chubby guy who portrayed Sidharths friend added the much needed comic elements for the movie be it the way he carried his failures and getting slapped from girls in almost all the scenes that he appeared or the way in which he provoked people for a break-up were rib-tickling moments.
The couples who portrayed the lead actors parents were well cast. Suresh especially had delivered a matured performance and it was nice to see a yester year romantic hero in such a role.
Music by Thaman was damp squib and audiences were almost running out of patience when 2 or 3 songs came within 15 minutes in the first half.
Editing for this movie could have been tricky as the screenplay had its own share of time oscillations a decent job by T.S.Suresh, though one would wish that he could have avoided the drag in the first half.
Cinematography by Nirav Shah, who also happens to be one of the producers of the movie, was nothing exceptional, but was neat.
Though, KSY had its fair share of funny scenes and dialogs, overall it was an average fair without anything special to offer in any of the departments, be it acting, music or other technical details.
