Cast: Samuthirakani, Ramya Pandian, Radha Ravi, Aranthangi Nisha.
It is not for the first time that we see Samuthirakani donning a moralistic guy who mouths plethora of messages in a preachy tone. And he is no different in Thamira’s Aan Devathai.
The film starts with Elango (Samuthirakani) and his daughter Adhira (Monica) moving around on the streets of the city without any aim. They seemed homeless and try to sleep on the beach, but the cops don’t allow them and then shifts to a dingy lodge that gives him nightmares.
Cut to flashback, and we see Elango and Jessie (Ramya Pandian) and they are a happily married couple with twin children Adhira and Agara Mudhalvan (Kavin). While Elango is a medical rep and contended with his job, his wife works for a corporate company and is ambitious in her career. When everything goes fine initially, trouble begins when one day Elango feels that the kids are being neglected because of both of them working. He asks Jessie to give up her job in vain, and so he quits his employment and decides to be a ‘house husband’. Though the children get closer to him, his relationship with Jessie becomes astray. One day after a big fight, he decides to walk out of the house with his daughter, leaving behind Agaran with Jessie. The rest is all about what these two go through in life with the movie ending rather in a predictable note.
It’s a cakewalk for Samuthirakani as his character and looks are just a mix of his previous movies. As usual he speaks lengthy dialogues hailing farmers and lashing out on corporate culture. His daughter played by Monica speaks a lot for her age. Thankfully, the other kid Kavin has been portrayed in a natural manner. Ramya Pandian justifies her role. Radha Ravi and Harish Peradi are just about adequate. The corporate employees in the movie are always shown either boozing and dancing in parties and flirting with other’s wives or buying expensive things like swanky cars etc. It is far from reality to enjoy such a lifestyle as the people portrayed in the film are earning a monthly salary of Rs 70 thousand only.
Technically, Vijay Milton’s cinematography is excellent and Ghibran’s music is appeasing....
