The Young Couple Gautham (Harish Kalyan) and Meera (Ivana) were dating for a couple of years and Meera decides to spend time and get to know her future mother-in-law(Nadiya) before marriage. Meera gives an idea of a trip to Coorg to get to know about her future mother-in-law and the outcome of this adventure is the rest of the movie.
•DETAIL REVIEW AND ANALYSIS OF THE FILM:
The idea of getting to know each other between Meera and her future Mother-in-law is the true baseline but the makers of this movie stretched into more than two and half-an-hour. This screenplay was an utter waste of time and it failed to do justice for the plot. The movie had an inorganic narrative style and there were many scenes of forced comedies. The comedy scenes in the screenplay went unrealistic and the writer Ramesh Thamilmani approach of bring authentic comedy went flat. As a viewer, I couldn’t connect with the forced comedies. The story written by Sakshi Dhoni was predictable and the story of the movie was not having enough components to engage the audience.
At some sites, specific scenes were elevated by Harish Kalyan, Ivana And Nadiya. The flashback of Nadiya where her husband dies did not give any impact or emotional feel. The scenes which supposed to create impact were not executed well by the director Ramesh Thamilmani. So, the movie was gradually failing to create an impression. The emotions in the screenplay such as romance and sentiments between the son and parents was not having an authentic feel, therefore, the value of relationships in the movie was poorly written and it killed the soul of the film. Also, the dialogues in the film felt unnatural and the conversation between the characters were not having a power to impress the audience.
In the film, Mirchi Vijay often used to tell that the romantic story of the central character is always boring, likewise, the entire story of the movie was making my viewing experience dull. The bizarre tiger sequence and some scenes of ultimate climax were sluggish. Also, the saddest part of the Screenplay was, the movie was scrammed with unnecessary comedy scenes which created lag. The screenplay writing was collapsed and the stretched long writing was horrible to wear. So the long duration of two and a half an hour was felt boring. As a movie that comes under the genre of comedy film, the makers are supposed to evoke laughter but the things went upside down and in the name of comedies they had given the worst cinematic experience.
The director should have concentrated only on direction leaving the duty of the music director to someone else which would have made the movie better. I did not feel connected and engaged with the movie. The screenplay should have been made better and overall the director should have done his job in a much better way. The writing should have been more impactful to create an effective screenplay where this movie did not contain the required elements to get engaged to this flick. The director didn’t give this movie a fun-filled outcome and the only optimistic outcome was the good music and moderate background scores.
•HOW ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE OF ACTORS?
Harish Kalyan, Ivana, Nadiya Moidu, Yogi Babu, VTV Ganesh, Mirchi Vijay, Venkat Prabhu and Sandy Masterwere the primary actors in this film.
Harish Kalyan’s acting did not give an impact and did not feel any connectedness to me. The acting of Ivana gives soul to the movie and her expressions didn’t fail to win the hearts of her fans. The performance of Ivana was in a much better space to showcase her good acting skills than Harish Kalyan. The screen presence of Nadiya Moidu was really good and she made the screen superheated. Yogi Babu as always did his portion to the best and his comedy scenes were moderately good. Mirchi Vijay’s performance as a supportive friend to the hero was relatively fine but did not give much impact. VTV Ganesh, Venkat Prabhu and Sandy Master have done moderate acting according to their roles.The forced laughter scenes and unnecessary character appearances of Sandy Master, VTV Ganesh and Venkhat Prabhu should have been more effective which failed to create an impact on their roles.
•HOW WAS THE MUSICAL DEPARTMENT?
The song and background scores were composed by Ramesh Thamilmani, the Director of this movie. The song Salana written by Madhan Karky is a moderate melody sung by RK Adithya. The Song Grill Chicken is a folk song sung by Gana Vinoth was somewhat good. Kaattu Payapulla was a fast-beat song given voice by Anthony Daasan and Paal Dabba. Tikki Tikki Tata sung by Nithyasree Venkatramanan and Madhu Iyer was a good party song penned by Madhan Karky. The song Is Kis Kifa with the dance performance of Sandy Master was exceptionally good. Overall the songs and background scores were good to hear.
•WHAT’S BEHIND THE FILM?
The CGI works in the movie at the end of the film was horrible and the illogical Tiger sequence made the movie even worse. Also, the colour tone was inconsistent and the poor camera angles gave me the feel of watching an advertisement or short film. So the cinematography of Viswajith Odukkathil was underwhelming with moderate angles and shots. The editor Pradeep E Ragav should have trimmed the unwanted boring scenes and the overall length of the movie felt boring. For smooth watching, the editor should have cut the unnecessary scenes.
The movie LGM shortened outlet of Let’s Get Married directed by Ramesh Thamilmani had given me a boring experience due to the utterly waste screenplay and direction. To be honest, I didn’t enjoy this film because of the poorly made script and moderate direction. The performance of Ivana, Harish Kalyan, Nadiya, Yogi Babu and Mirchi Vijay was overall good but it did not help to make the movie into a fun-filled laughter film. This time it was not a sixer to MS Dhoni as his fans would have expected more from the film.
