Even if his own kin were to betray him, Raj Kiran would not hesitate to kill off the man and gouge out his insides. Vijay is a young man who thrives on being surrounded by trouble, and his parents send him to work under Raj Kiran.
Villain Mahadevan is angry with Raj Kiran’s family and to take revenge, he plans to kill Raj Kiran’s daughter Asin. So, Raj Kiran appoints Vijay as Asin’s bodyguard. Now we have fire and cotton side by side. Vijay has loads of respect for Asin but feels no love. But Vijay’s deeds invoke feelings of love in Asin.
Revealing her feelings would lead to trouble, so she starts a game of hide and seek. So moves the film for two and a half hours, catching momentum only in the last 20 minutes, when we find out whether Vijay and Asin unite happily with each other. In a rather soft role, Vijay touches not only Asin’s heart but ours too. When he flutters in agony over the identity of his unknown love, Vijay’s acting is commendable.
It’s been a while since Ilaya Dalapathy has appeared in a delicate love story and now director Siddiq has given him that opportunity. In this film too, the director has shown that his films have a good element of comedy.
Asin is back in Tamil films after a gap and her face seems to be rather wan with hollow cheeks, with only her glances looking bright, like an oasis in the middle of the desert. When she invites Vijay to the park with a smile and complains behind his back, Asin is rather fetching. Just because a cow loses weight, does not mean its horns become thin too. Likewise, Asin may have lost weight but her acting is as strong as
The story stretches like rubber with a comedy spark now and then by Vadivelu. He spouts all sorts of sayings and then confuses by asking whether it is said by Abraham Lincoln, Abdul Kalam, Bharatiraja or Kamaraj, sending us into splits of laughter.
He appears in only a few scenes, but Raj Kiran is magnificent. Roja as Asin’s mother and villain Mahadevan disappear half way through the film. The girl acting as Asin’s friend is supposed to be the heroine of ‘Kandha.’ She is super. Directors, please take note!
What’s wrong with Vidyasagar? Not even one song makes a pass mark. If the good pace of the last few minutes had been seen in the earlier part of the film, ‘Kavalan’ would have made more of an impact.
