After a long gap, director 'Yaar' Kannan is out with a sci-fi thriller, perhaps inspired by movies like Alien. Kannan has tried to render thriller.
The story is about a scientist who stays at Kollimalai Hills to find ways and means to tackle the rocks that are to fall from moon and destroy the earth. The problems that he encounters in his mission forms the crux. It is a convoluted story that makes you to leave reasoning and logic in cold storage.
Nasser as usual is good at his role. Swarnamalya gets an opportunity to show her acting talent. Unfortunately Richard , who had a good outing in Naalai recently just plays a second fiddle. Charuhaasan has nothing much to do.
The movie begins with Professor Narendran, who finds out that rocks from lunar craters would fall on earth and destroy the world soon. Narendran and his assistant Swarnamalya choose to keep it as a secret and decide not to create panic in the earth. They are joined by a group of students which include Richard, 'Boys' Manikandan in accomplishing their mission. They come across a different problem. Swarnamalya's father Charu Hassan led by a group of men forms a cult. They decide to die and plan to take revenge on the humans for polluting the world. Narendran and his team comes to know of their plans. The rest is how they tackle both the problems.
The computer graphics and the brisk background score by Dheena are the highlights of the movie.
A major portion of the movie has been shot in Kollimalai hills and Sibiyon has captured the locales well.
Had Kannan showed more focus in the screenplay, Yuga could have been different.
