As usual Prabhu Deva excels in dance and he has two fight sequences too, but his performance is just about adequate.

Director: Sakthi Chidambaram

Cast: Prabhu Deva, Prabhu,Nikki Galrani, Adah Sharma

 

With making sequels being the order of the day in K’town, Sakthi Chidambaram who wanted to cash on the situation returned to screen after a gap making a sequel to his 2002 film Charlie Chaplin, which was the most remade film in Indian cinema. It needs to be seen if he has recreated the magic once again with CC2.

Thiru (Prabhu Deva) along with his two friends (Aravind Akash and Chandhana) who runs a matrimonial agency has successfully completed 99 marriages. His parents (Siva and Sendhi) are on the lookout of a suitable girl for him. Meanwhile, Thiru meets Sara (Nikki Galrani) and yes, the inevitable happens. It is love at first sight for Thiru. Though initially there is a mix-up, later Sara also reciprocates. Her doctor dad Ramakrishnan (Prabhu) also agrees and the marriage date is fixed. Just a day before the wedding, a misunderstanding takes place that leaves the proposed marriage in jeopardy! Whether Thiru rectifies the mistake and enter into wedlock with Sara forms the reminder of this mindless comedy.

As usual Prabhu Deva excels in dance and he has two fight sequences too. But with lackluster writing, his performance is just about adequate. It is the same case with Prabhu as well. Nikki Galrani looks pretty and matches up with Deva in dance moves. Adah Sharma is wasted in an insignificant role. Sameer Kochar debuts in a blink and miss role. Vivek Prasanna and Ravi Mariya try to tickle your funny bones in vain. The jokes are lame especially the body shaming gags involving Seetha (of Goli Soda fame) are unwarranted. Logic goes for a toss nearly throughout the entire proceedings. There seemed to be editing jumps as well. After a point, with so many characters walking in and out of each frame, we get a feeling as if we are watching a mega-serial.  The Chinna Machchan remix song by Amrish is already a hit. The picturisation is also good. Enjoyable only in parts!
