10 Enradhukulla (2015)
The much-hyped road film 10 Endrathukulla is directed by Vijay Milton, jointly produced by AR Murugadoss and Fox Star Studios. The director’s earlier film Goli Soda was an action-packed entertainer and one of biggest hits of 2014. Vikram, who comes after a long break from his magnum opus I, takes on a less risky role this time in a commercial entertainer. Vikram stands tall with his style is paired with the gorgeous Samantha who might have grabbed her biggest role in Kollywood till date, given equal importance and also present is Pasupathy in a different avatar.
Vikram is a daredevil car driver, who is forced to take up jobs ferrying illegal goods to provide for his comatose sister. Interestingly, he has no name in the film, and calls himself James Bond, Mani Ratnam or Sunil Gavaskar.
He meets Shakeela (Samantha) at a driving institute, where he is a trainer. An orphan, Shakeela is determined to earn her driving license.
Meanwhile, we have a small-time goon Dass (Pasupathy), who hires Vikram to transport a vehicle from Chennai to Mussoorie in Uttarakhand. What he fails to mention is that a kidnapped Shakeela is lying unconscious in the car.
The first half meanders aimlessly with a number of unnecessary songs at regular intervals, while the lead pair are busy falling in love. But the second half takes on a more serious note.
