A disjointed movie with an attempted message against child trafficking is incoherent at its best. While I prefer to watch new faces anyday over the same old faces for 35 years, this movie completely lost the plot by filling the frames around Shobhana with obscure faces, strange language (the story apparently takes place somewhere in South India where people are more comfortable with Hindi than South India) and an incomplete message.
Apparently a lot of tween and teen girls are being abducted in that part of the world by folks involved in immoral trafficking. Shobhana with the help of Dhyan, who plays a brother who lost a sister, does some pretty silly things to put the stupid thugs away and get those girls back. The movie fails to dig deeper into the social ills prevalent in the society. As a viewer, we feel like the common law abiding citizens of India are more in tune with the causes and solutions to this than the people who are telling us the story.
The dialogs by Rakesh Mandodi is childish and not quite befitting a movie with such a theme. Usual pet peeve of unintelligible editing by Ranjan Abraham makes the couple of hours quite difficult to endure. What stands out are 2 elements - An aged Shobhana who continues to look bewitching despite her attempt at portraying the annoyed face throughout the movie and the captivating music which is mostly carried by Neha Nair's guile and intonation.
Dhyan Sreenivasan has had a forgettable debut and Vineeth would want to forget that Thira ever happened. The movie would have had a lot of opportunities if a real director would have attempted to make it. Some real actors who has had training in the field would have helped too.
