I saw today Aambala (ஆம்பள) starring Vishal & Hansika Motwani. I had few expectations after Poojai expected a similar village action movie by Vishal. To my surprise, it turned out to be a full-length comedy, a typical Sundar C movie.
Vishal runs a company that helps to gather crowds for all events. Santhanam is a local police inspector. Vishal falls in love with Hansika. I liked the storytelling style here by Director Sundar C. As Vishal‘s love progresses, Santhanam gets demoted, finally losing his job. Then the story takes a turn to finally revealing Hansika to be the aunt’s daughter for Vishal, two families separated for a long due to a ploy by the villain, played by Pradeep Rawat as Pasupathy.
Many veteran actors appear, playing their parts as given, you see Prabhu, Ramya Krishnan, Vijayakumar, Aishwarya and half a dozen others. Vaibhav Reddy and Satish come as brothers to Vishal. After a gap now, Santhanam‘s comedy makes you really laugh, just not tickle, with little or no double-meaning dialogues. The TASMAC (drunken) song, which is a must now for all love stories in Tamil cinema, is present, but kept as a happy song in search of someone.
Everything cliche about village movies is present, but still, you can enjoy the film. In every movie, action performances by Vishal are visibly improving, this movie he has done very well. Hansika is lovely as ever. Mahindra & Tata motors should be quite pleased with Vishal, most of his movies now have flying Sumo (cars) & Bolero. In this movie, the number of cars has increased. You can comfortably stop thinking (logic), as after the first 60 minutes you figure out what’s going to happen. Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenes as it comes, I did that and came out laughing.
