Inimey Ippadithan (2015)
Directed by Lollu Sabha writer-friends Murugan and Anand, ‘Inimey Ippadithan’ is Santhanam’s second outing as solo hero. Santhanam can be seen walking down like a dude, clad in latest designer wears, dances along with foreigners for a number and then even better, gets to romance two gorgeous ladies in the movie.
The storyline and structure is similar to any other Tamil film in the rom com genre. However, what makes it different is its treatment by debutant directors Murugan-Anand.
The film opens with a ‘bride seeing ceremony’ and this goes on and on until the very last scene, when the hero Seenu (Santhanam) finally gets married.
Seenu is on a rejection spree. He hates all the girls suggested by his parents and decides to find a beautiful girl himself who he can fall in love with and marry.
There is a ridiculous song in which he goes around proposing to random girls on the street and all of them reject him.
Seenu the jolly-go-lucky guy, falls heads over heels on Maha who also appeared in his previous flick. Maha is a college student, played by Ashna Zaveri. As with any other romcom movie, he tries to propose to her innovatively to grab her attention, for once we even get to think he would become the stereotyped hero who would bash up the thugs who poke fun at the heroine, but the director has his own ideas and keeps the ball rolling. Maha shows no interest in Seenu.
Meanwhile, Seenu’s parents find him a lovely girl, Akhila (Akhila Kishore), confident that their son will find no reason to reject her.
Making an entry at this point is the National award-winning Thambi Ramaiah, as Seenu’s uncle. He further complicates the matter and Seenu finds himself engaged to Akhila. Maha now finds that she cannot live without Seenu and claims to love him.
Seenu now has two girls fighting for his affections. With the wedding day drawing closer, Seenu is running out of time. The second half is all about how he gets himself deeper into this mess. Just when you start assuming, alright give me something different, the duos of Muruganand pens down a twist to the plot.
