Dulquer Salmaan starring Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal [கண்ணும் கண்ணும் கொள்ளையடித்தால்] was a thorough entertainer. Starting as a typical love story, it morphs into a conman story – Director Desingh Periyasamy has managed the transition effortlessly – I totally didn’t expect the twist.
The first thirty minutes when Sid (Dulquer Salmaan) falls in love with Meera (Ritu Varma) was fresh and interesting. The sequences showing online eCommerce fraud were mostly plausible, similarly was the “car” thefts. The climax theft though a bit far-fetched kept you engaged and that’s enough for a feature film.
Dulquer Salmaan as done his role as a loverboy well, the heroine Ritu Verma while not scoring in the first half, has given fine acting in the second-half. Rakshan who comes as hero’s friend Kallis is one who impresses the most with his simple and relatable humour. Gautham Vasudev Menon comes as a cop who is familiar to us from all the cop films of the master director. As heroine’s friend Shreya, Niranjani Ahathian fits her role.
The movie had a few noteworthy dialogues like: “லைஃப்ல எல்லாருக்கும் வேணுங்கிறது தானே கிடைக்கும், ஆனா இங்க மத்தவங்களுக்கு வேண்டாங்கிறது தான் கிடைக்கும்.”, “நான் என்னிக்கும் (துணிகளை) ப்ரைஸ்ப் (விலை) பார்த்து எடுத்ததில்லை, சைஸ் (அளவு) பார்த்து தான் எடுத்திருக்கேன். ”
Overall, a good movie to watch, go for it.
