Story:

A complete tale, the story is set on a flashback mode and it talks about how Surya (Suriya) who is now a Major in the Indian army reaches to his current stage. The life begins with his father Krishnan (Surya) who falls in love with Malini (Simran) and together their dream journey begins. Soon, Surya is born and then grows up to be the regular teenager with all passions. His life takes a turn when he sees Meghna (Sameera) and it is love at first sight. However, Meghna goes to America and Surya follows her upto the US and finally she falls in love with him. But then, as fate would have it, a gruesome incident takes place and Meghna dies, Surya comes home to India only to get into drugs and alcohol. His father and mother are there with him at all times and soon he sets off to Kashmir to discover himself. Soon, self confidence grows in him and an incident in Delhi gives him the urge to bounce back into life and do something productive. Surya decides to join the army, meanwhile Priya (Divya) his sister's friend has been seeing him since childhood and has a strong liking for Surya. All this apart Krishnan is diagnosed with throat cancer and Meghna's thoughts are still hovering in Surya's mind. Does he overcome that? Is Priya successful in her love? All this forms the rest of the story.


Presentation:

The director has come up with a rather mature subject and though he was adept at handling it sensisbly in terms of presentation, the narrative went a bit too lengthy. The dialogues were simple, the script was written perfectly with an attention to detail, the screenplay was executed brilliantly. Songs were above average, cinematography was mind blowing. The editing could have been a lot better and should have got more stiff with their work. The locations were fantastic and the other departments did their job well. Surya is the complete show stealer and walks away with all the credit. His dual role as father and son was perfect and the innumerable phases of transformation that he depicts is really commendable. He has shown his mettle as a complete actor in all aspects. Simran looked just perfect for the role, Sameera was ravishing as ever, Divya looked domestic and suited the bill correctly. The others contributed well to the support cast.


Conclusion:

The film is more like a journey that begins with birth and ends with death, and the various experiences and phases that a human being goes through is depicted in a rather mature manner. While the first half is more on the lighter side of romance and the weirdest things one does in the heat of the age, the other half shows the pain, the anger and frustration. Last but not the least, it is the bounce back period that really touches the audience. The film would have been a marvelous piece if the length could have been shorter but then each scene had its own significance. Such films are really essential for the Indian audience and though this might be too slow for our thrills, it goes to show the complete cycle of life. Technically, the film has been wonderful and commercially it may not have a blockbuster but it will surely be a clean success.


Bharatstudent Verdict : A complete journey, only for mature audience, worth watching!!!
