The narrative is set in a small town where a restless man named Veera (Vishnu Vishal) had no definite intentions for the future.

Movie Verdict

The movie gets off to a good start by introducing the two characters in the first half of the narrative, which is quite entertaining with just the right amount of comedy. However, many of the scenes in the first half are much more relatable as they show how a husband and wife deal with their egos in humorous ways, which may hook you in the first half for a while but don’t advance the plot. We lose interest in the story because there isn’t any conflict in the first half. Additionally, there aren’t many action scenes or comedic bits in the first half.

Although Veera initially cultivated good comedy with his action, once his motive is revealed we get to see a new dimension in the character. Nevertheless, all the emotions have been balanced in the second half quite well and it makes you invested in the story. The second half begins completely opposite to the first half.

Brilliant performance by Vishnu Vishal as Veera, who has two facets. Aishwarya Lekshmi, who stole the show with her performance as she masterfully displayed the variations of an aggressive girl and an innocent girl, and the rest of the cast also impressed with their performances. The second one is quite good to watch on screen, and he did a brilliant job by playing the two roles. Everyone tried their best, including Gajaraj, Karunas, Sreeja Ravi, Munishkanth, Kaali Venkat, Redin Kingsley, Hareesh Peradi, Ajay, and Shatru.

Chella Ayyavu created a relatable tale, but he was unable to successfully combine a love story and a sporting event. Nevertheless, he was successful in adding comedy, which might appeal to some audiences.

Technically, Justin Prabhakaran’s songs are not up to par; however, Matti Kusthi is known for melody songs and cool bgm, and Richard M. Nathan’s cinematography looks old because the frame is filled with over-saturated colors, which was the biggest drawback for the film; and the rest of the team did well.

The majority of the time, Matti Kusthi is a disposable commercial entertainer.

Plus Points:

  • Comedy

Minus Points:

  • Routine Story
  • Predictable scenes
