One of the most talented music directors of this generation G.V.Prakash Kumar turned up as a hero with the horror flick ‘Darling’ which was a super hit. This time GVP is back as an actor playing a quintessential Chennai ‘virgin’ boy with ‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’ directed by debutante Aadhik Ravichander. The second attempt in any field is as important as the debut and how the second outing of this young actor has come out? Read the Review.

Jeeva (G.V.Prakash), Ramya (Anandhi) and Aththi (Manisha) are born on the same day in the same labor room. They grow up as childhood friends in the same residential colony. As they become adolescents Jeeva and Ramya fall in love when Athithi goes out of town. They indulge in some romantic escapades and Ramya breaks the relationship due to a mistake committed by Jeeva.

Athithi comes in the life of Jeeva but that relationship also breaks up as Jeeva is turned off by the life style of Athithi. Jeeva goes to Kumbakonam from Chennai and there, she meets Ramya again. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
The story of the film is just what the title suggests. It is the journey of a young boy in search of love who easily moves to another girl after being dumped by one. For this wafer thin storyline debutante Aadhik has penned a script filled with entertainment and fun in all sorts and that may make this film a favorite of youngsters. The dialogues and never a dull moment screenplay are the biggest pluses of the film.

The initial scenes of juvenile attraction have been captured in a cute manner and the director should be appreciated for treading the path cautiously. He has maintained this as a cute friendship between children of opposite genders with its own funny moments and ensures that it does not get any other meaning that may not suit their age.

What follows are a series of bold sequences of adolescent love life. The director does not hide anything that is part of a love or infatuation between adolescents. There are many double meaning dialogues, references (direct and indirect) and reactions that justify the A certificate given by the Censor board. Most of these parts may not go well with the family audience, especially women and the film is definitely not for children.

At the same time these may work out as positives and crowd pullers of the film as they make the desired impact among the youth, especially the young males, thanks to the sequences and dialogues that bash woman who drink and woman in general been a problem for men. The first half of the film also rightly deals with the problems faced by youngsters falling in love when they are incapable of handling relationships.

The focus of the second half shifts mainly on making us laugh, which brings in its share of logical compromises. Amidst these, the way Jeeva wins back the love of Ramya has been portrayed in a neat and touching manner.

The film deals with the present day definition of love and the perspective of today’s youngsters of both genders about love, relationship, virginity etc. and they have been portrayed in an entertaining manner. On the other hand all these aspects of life are dealt in a shallow manner and there are generalizations and stereotypes casted on women. Women do not fall for men, break up and again fall for the same man as easily as shown in this film.

The film hits hard on women drinking liquor and also portrays it as a social evil. On the other hand men drinking is not just handled casually, but it is also shown as an essential part of life for some young men. We wonder whether the statutory warning shown before the start of the film said “Liquor drinking is injurious to health only for women”.

G.V.Prakash is really growing up as an actor and he has given a no-nonsense performance as a Chennai guy with apt expressions and dialogue delivery. Anandhi’s eyes are very expressive and she uses the scope to perform well. Manisha oozes out glamour with a lot of skin show and her character ends in the first half itself, but for a blink you will miss appearance in the second. VTV Ganesh comes as the mentor who helps the hero in love for yet another time, but sparks laughter here and there. Simran’s character is one of the well etched out ones in the film and this will go as the most memorable non-heroine performances of this highly talented actress. But her dubbing synchronization could have been better. Yuhi Sethu in another cameo role does his part well. Arya and Priya Anand add up to the star attractions of the film with their respective cameos.

As a music director G.V.Prakash stands out again with songs rightly catering to the moods of the situation. Most of them are peppy too. BGM is apt.

Cinematographer Ricahrd.M.Nathan and Editor L.Ruben have done their job neatly without leaving scope for complaints.

On the whole, ‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’ is a treat for youngsters and may be a bitter pill for elders and puritans.

Verdict: Deserves the money and time of entertainment and fun seekers.

Rating: 2.75 / 5.0
