+2, 1st attempt’ has a neat story
that describes the pitiable lives of students
pressurized by their family members on
their education. But the heart and soul
of this concept remains unexplored throughout
The master of screenplay, K.Bhagyaraj,
has churned out some resplendent movies
in the past.
yesteryear showpieces are still adored as evergreen
entertainers. But his latest offering, Siddu +2, lacks
the usual charm that is associated with the director’s
The film opens with Pavithra (Chandini) on a cut and
run from her house after failing in +2 examinations.
On arriving in Chennai, she is found flummoxed, which
raises doubt among cops in railway station. Soon arrives
the savior Siddu (Shanthanoo), a charming guy rescuing
her out of troubled waters. Later he introduces himself
with a commonness that prevails between them. He has
flunked terribly in his examinations and is on the
way to commit suicide. Mutually exclusive in their
nature, the two teens start sharing a bond that later
blossoms into love. Meanwhile, one of them succeeds
in the exam and events that unfold from then on, have
been told using some of the latest techniques in film
making combined with adult jokes in Siddu Plus 2.
Shanthanoo sticks to the core of his character exhibiting
a free-and-easy style performance. The young lad has
given his best in action sequences and his dancing
skills need special mention. Chandini looks perfect
as a panicked innocent girl. K. Bhagyaraj seems to
have stressed himself a lot over penning dialogues
banking on youth groups. The second half of the film
sags on and off.
A sulfurous encounter specialist getting hold of a
normal guy and the challenge he poses is not warranted.
The bomb blast operation in a fun fare is well dramatized
as it imparts some pace in screenplay. The actor performing
the role of Chandini’s cousin tries demoing
his skills. But his characterization is bleak.
‘Poove Poove’ crooned by Yuvan Shankar
Raja and Chinmayee is the pick of the album. The remix
number ‘Aalaana thamarai’ passes muster
which could find takers in certain sections of the
audience. Raasamathy’s cinematography is praise
worthy. Choreographers Bobby, Shobi and Prasanna have
swayed with their energetic steps.
Verdict: Not the vintage Bhagyaraj!
Plus 2, Shanthnoo,
