Gautam Vasudev Menon just did it once again– told what he wanted to (keeping aside what the fan world expects). And we have to tell you that this is beyond just a love story (as many would assume! Appreciate if you didn’t).
“Anything might happen to anyone in life and we just need to be prepared for it” says GVM. And we want you to be prepared for this film too. This crime thriller in the disguise of a love story attempts to enthrall you with its intent and nothing more. ARR gives an amazing album and much to our dismay, Gautam Menon fails to blend it well in this thriller. Though the story looks intact on paper, the film falls apart trying to blend two different genres. It all begins like a GVM mark musical love story and then the deluge of songs slowly start bothering you. Just in when, the edgy pre-interval block gives you a good reason to look forward to the second half. The way he musically narrates the crucial scene is just brilliant!
By the way if you have already tuned yourself to watch an action drama, the second half can live upto the snuff. And the climax twist was predictable and revealing the key back story in a voice over was so obvious.
GVM was known for his gripping action dramas (in spite of the lags) but SSS fails to qualify for the league – in terms of entertainment. Fans might experience the same that happened with Yennai Arindhal! (Expect something and find something else).
It is neither a beautiful love story or a magical thriller!
- Lead cast performances especially Chay, Baba Sehgal, Rakendumouli & Manjima
- Lack of commercial entertainment might disappoint the masses.
