Actor Prabhu’s Son Vikram Prabhu’s debut movie, Sundarapandian actress Lakshmi Menon Second Movie, D.Imman, Cinematographer Sukumar, Thambi Ramaiah and Prabhu Solomon’s Combo after the path breaking “Mynaa” had created huge expectation for this movie. Let us see whether it will satisfy the expectations of a COMMON MAN.
The story revolves around Vikram Prabhu and his elephant that he considers as his brother. Kumki is the Elephant which is used to guide wild elephants back to the forest to minimize the destruction of human beings, properties and fields of nearby villages. Vikram Prabhu’s Elephant named Manickam is a very innocent one, but the situations around it make him as Kumki.
Vikram Prabhu – Since he is “GRANDSON OF SIVAJI”, people will not consider it as his debut movie and will expect more from him. But, he had really done the role perfectly in such a way that no one can say that this is his debut movie. He has to improve and hopefully he will do it in his future movies.
Lakshmi Menon had got more fans than any other debutant actress of this year. She definitely deserves the phrase “The Next Door Girl”. She looks very beautiful in this movie and had lived the role. She may get awards for the best debutant of this year.
Thambi Ramaiah, National Award Winning Actor proves once again that he deserves the award. He had got more SCREEN PRESENCE in this movie and has really carried the movie on his shoulders in the first half. He doesn't only perform the role of a Supporting actor but also takes care of the Comedy department in the movie. Almost, all his dialogues in the movie receive huge applause from the Crowd. This will be one of the best movies in his career.
Real Hero of the movie is Cinematographer Sukumar...Movie is a Visual Treat…He had worked hard on each and every frame and it looks like our desktop Wallpapers. Not only 3D or Sound Effects will bring the Audience back to theatres, but even Excellent Cinematography will bring them to the theatre.
D.Imman is having a wonderful time. His recent movies have assured his place as one of the leading Musicians in Tamil Industry. Sollitalae Aval Kadhalae is the best MELODY of this year. It is also Picturized Superbly. All the songs in the movie are too good and his background music really adds more feel to the romantic scenes.
Prabhu Solomon yet again proves that he is one of the best directors in our Tamil Cinema with a wonderful movie. It is not easy to take a movie with Elephant and new comers and makes the audience sit in the theatre for 150 minutes, but he had done it quite easily. Story of the movie is just one liner but the screenplay was too good to make the audience engaged in the movie with the help of wonderful locations, awesome music and extraordinary performance by Thambi Ramaiah.
Having said the positives, CLIMAX of the movie will get mixed response. The whole movie travels around with a huge buildup towards the climax and climax really falls flat with poor graphics and it ends abruptly. Graphics used in the Songs and Scenes were extremely good, that one can’t differentiate it. But, Graphics used in the Climax scene were really bad.
Overall, this movie will be liked by all classes of Audience.
This is one of the movies which had to be watched in Theaters to EXPERIENCE THE FEELING OF LOVE with Wonderful locations and Awesome Music.
Rating for this Movie by Common Man will be 3.25 / 5
