    Endrendrum Punnagai – Unlocking smiles from sorrow

    Jiiva has done his role convincingly well as the man who sticks to his wishes, until the day which forces him to change. Trisha is not the typical girly girl, always lost in high dreams. Although her screen presence is brief, Andrea’s role makes for a turning point in the love story, which the actress has performed very good at. Vinay has played both a happy and an emotionally sincere friend. Santhanam’s also compliments the scenes well, making for a supporting and understanding friend. Jegan’s presence is comically entertaining only when he enters the screen, but falls quite flat. Nassar is more of a buddy than paren. With the positives in place, the film is a clean and action-free entertainer.

    Sakthi’s camera has worked magic, especially in the snowy terrains. However, costume designing seems to have taken a hit,.especially in the case of Andrea’s. Make up is simple, but it could’ve been better too. While Santhanam’s comedy entertains in the first half, it utterly disappoints in the latter half. As for Vinay, his screen presence is also limited to the former half and climax, that is until he gets married. The story is fairly predictable at almost every frame, after the friends separate. In some places, there are dialogues that are unnecessarily long or winding. Harris’s music is refreshing at places but sounds repetitive over the many frames.

    ‘Endrendrum Punnagai’ is a comic entertainer in parts. The film is a different outlook on love and friendship. ‘Endrendrum Punnagai’, as aptly titled, is a story that urges to unlock the happiness behind our ego, and a film worth investing your time on.

    Watch this friendship and romance fiesta on the big screens!

    Jiiva looks very appealing in his role as Gautham and gives a very neat performance. This movie is a good comeback vehicle for Vinay and Santhanam is his usual funny self.

    Director Ahmed has taken up a simple story and woven a very lively movie around it! This romantic musical is fresh and makes one relate to it, especially the young men of today. The screenplay is racy in the first half, but the second half could have been made more taut. H

    The first on screen pairing of Jiiva and Trisha makes for some wonderful viewing in Endrendrum Punnagai!

    Terrific cast sparkles in this Bromance + Rom-Com entertainer.

    Director Ahmed is clear in his agenda to soak his characters, and his audience, in happiness and good times. The first half is filled with humorous boys-will-be-boys moments and the second half hosts an endearing romantic segment that takes flight in a ‘Before Sunrise’ like montage. But he also injects the film with different emotional elements to stack up the personal challenges for his character Goutham to confront.

    Harris’s bubblegum pop tunes and the songs have been shot in the flavor of international music videos, but the composer unleashes his complete musical arsenal in the re-recording.

    Cinematographer Mathi must have had a field day capturing such fine looking people against gorgeous backdrops and settings. Specifically look out for his work in the ‘Kadhal naan thaan’ song.

    Endrendrum Punnagai does well not to test your patience with entertainment in some shape or form appearing in regular intervals.
