Sakthi Soundar Rajan known for his quest to come up with themes that are totally off the beaten track has woven yet another innovative tale that belongs to the ‘science fiction’ genre! Though the M.G.R. starrer, ‘Kalaiarasi’ holds the distinction of being the first space film in Tamil, this is one stands out as this is a full-fledged in its thematic content as well as in its presentation and it won’t be out of place to hail this as the 1st space film of its kind in the entire country!
Given the magnitude of the production & the time taken to make it, full credit to the producer & the director for coming up with such a film most of which is good enough! Of course, there are some glitches in the script and the execution leaves some more to be sought but the overall picture is good and the efforts need to be lauded!
Jayam Ravi known for his knack in dealing with such physically demanding roles, has done a commendable job! Thanks to the director for not exploring the love angle between him and Nivetha even though there is scope! Vasu (Jayam Ravi) is a single father deeply attached to his little son, Ravi (Aarav Ravi) and would stop at nothing when it comes to doing things for the sake of his son!
Officials at the Defense Space Division headed by the Operations Head Mahendran (Jayaprakash) are in a fix when they learn that an asteroid is all set to hit the country and they may have to steal a missile from a space station to prevent & destroy the asteroid!
Aided by his deputies, Raghuram (Vincent Asokan) & Swathi (Nivetha Pethuraj), Mahendran solicits the services of an escape artist Vasu who is now in prison!
The trio approaches him for the task of flying to space along with the two of them after relieving him of the prison formalities!
Joining them all are Venkat (Ramesh Thilak) & Appu (Arjunan) both of who accompanists of Vasu in technical matters.
How the mission gets accomplished is the interesting rest. In the process, a black sheep in the Defense Division is also identified!
D.Imman’s background score has worked out well to maintain the film’s pace!
A commendable experiment in Tamil cinema!
