The title of the movie itself tells one the story revolves around a young man’s attempt at expressing his love. Here  the hero is only in his first year of college and falls in love, instantaneously, as soon as he spots a pretty girl in his college. The catch, however, is that the girl is in her third year of studies and hence elder to him.

Seems The success of ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaya’ has inspired the director to opt for the theme. More of ‘7G Rainbow Colony’ meeting ‘Kadhal Konden’ will be seen, but the movie has smart one-liners that evoke instant humour, quite typical of Boopathy Pandian’s films.

Turn of events leads to Prabhu’s parents coming to know about his son’s affair and ensure that he gets his TC from college and leaves his studies. However Prabhu is still confident of wining her heart. As it happens, the movie ends with a twist.

Crew and Cast Review

Balaji is cool and comfortable before the lens. He is good in both emotional and comedy sequences. A welcome addition to the set of young heroes who have been making a mark in Tamil cinema.It was more like giving away ladoos for a person with sweet tooth and Balaji has taken advantage of the situation completely.

The characterizations of Meghna and the rest of the crew have been made appropriately and hence ebbs and flows with the movie’s moods. Sabesh Bobby is impressive and brings the roof down with laughter.

Giving able hand to the script is Yuvan Shankar Raja’s musical score. The songs are peppy and youthful and so are the background score. Na Muthukumar’s lyrics oozes with energy and youthfully vibrant. Rana’s cinematography is another highlight. It captures the Tiruchy town in fresh and a new colour.

Boopathy Pandiyan’s Kaadal Solla Vanden is not the time pass material he has produced before. It’s much less entertaining than its earlier counterparts and the fact that the storyline has very little scope for fast-paced narration leaves you stifle a yawn quite often.

All said, the movie has been made targeting youngsters and dialogues do help the director achieve it. However a lengthy second half and scenes resembling few earlier films takes away the sheen. The movie is a treat for youngsters.

There’s no harm in giving it a chance, only if you have nothing better to do over the weekend.
