SIVA MANASULA SAKTHI PREVIEW
Behindwoods review board
Starring: Jeeva, Anuya, Uravasi, Santhanam
Direction: Rajesh M
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Production: B Srinivasan
Jeeva returns to romance, the genre with which he began his career. His cool urban looks and smile are perfect for the lover boy kind of roles. Now comes Siva Manasula Sakthi, which we are told by the production team, is a no frills love story set entirely in Chennai carrying characters that will be instantly identifiable by the youth of the city. No wonder they were so insistent on getting the film into theaters for Valentine’s Day, what better timing for a story

that rides on nothing but love. SMS marks the entry of publishing veterans Vikatan into movies under the Vikatan Talkies banner.

Siva Manasula Sakthi (SMS, very interesting and attractive contraction, the medium that has taken over the role of Cupid) is about a guy and a girl, normal ordinary youth of Chennai who fall in love with each other. Besides their love, their egos too play a big part in the movie. We are not sure whether their egos will be king size enough to make the movie fit to be tagged as a ‘battle of the sexes’ flick, but there have been enough hints in the promos that suggest a few games of cat and mouse.

Jeeva plays a Chennai dude, so expect all those familiar whacky connotations, unique male bonding lingo and many other features about Chennai Tamil. This kind of role must have come naturally to Jeeva; should have been a rather easy outing for him. Anuya makes her debut as heroine, but she has managed to come off looking pretty seasoned in the trailers. Urvasi plays Jeeva’s mother and Santhanam is there to tickle your funny bone. Shot entirely in Chennai with the exception of 2 songs, SMS should be the simple story of a boy and a girl who realize that they are in love. There will be nothing spectacular. But there is something about these cute and sweet love stories that makes the prime candidates for being dark horses at the box office. If debutante director M. Rajesh (former assistant of S.A. Chandrashekhar) has got the balance right, then this might be another Valentine’s Day success story.
