Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara (2013)
With back-to-back success like Pizza and Soodhu Kavvum, Vijay Sethupathi has become the most bankable star in Kollywood today. After Rowthiram, Director Gokul seems to have struck the right chord, etching out a comedy movie.
Idharkuthane Aasapattai Balakumara (IAB) portrays the love stories of two attention-grabbing characters, whose individualities and backgrounds are at two extremes, but ultimately get to meet each other due to a few mistakes that come out as a cool message to the audience.
After the serious Rowthiram, it is a revelation to see Gokul handling a comedy script with ease. He has used the first half to introduce and develop the characters while the twist and turns take place in the second half. The story happens in a single day and Gokul’s gripping screenplay with a detailed treatment makes the film engaging.
The film revolves around five characters that on a certain day cross paths due to an incident in a local liquor joint. These characters don’t know each other, but are connected in some way.
Sumar Moonji Kumar (Vijay Sethupathi) is a carefree youth who lives in the suburbs of Chennai and his only motto is to win the heart of Kumudha(Nanditha). Kumudha on the other hand is completely hates Kumar so as her dad (Patimandram Raja). Raja seeks the help of local don Pasupathi in order to get a relief from Sumar Moonji Kumaru’s love torture.
Mean time Bala(Ashwin) is another uber cool youth who is in love with hyper possessive Renu (Swathi) and also always hates his bank job, especially because of his manager (MS Baskar). The lives of Kumar and Bala meet at an accident and the rest of the things form the crux of the story.
