As Shakespeare said, ‘All is well that Ends Well!’ It seems as if director P V Prasath has not thought of this famous line. His latest offering Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhaai ends on a disappointing note although the movie begins okay without any big flaws. The director, who is well known for his first movie, Kaadhalil Vizhunthen, seems to have not learnt from the mistakes he committed in his first movie. It looks like he has again done the same mistake of stretching the script to undesirable length and inducing unnecessary violence.
Here is the story of Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhaai, which is not something new to Tamil movie watchers. Seenu (Vishwa), on his way to college, comes across Mithra(Tanvi). He falls in love with her right at first sight of her. Fortunately, Mithra becomes his classmate in college and Seenu even succeeds in earning the friendship of Mithra. However, the twist comes in the name of Sam, who is a childhood friend of Mithra. He intervene Seenu’s relationship with Mithra and some unfortunate events follow up. What happens then to Mithra and Seenu?
P V Prasath, the director, seems to have taken the root of the script for Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhaai from his first movie Kaadhalil Vizhuthen. In both the movies, the rich girl – poor boy cliché is there and the protagonists in both the scripts seem to have a rough and terrific psycho background. While things like these give a redundant feel, the movie, however, manages to keep the audiences in tact in the initial sequences.
The problem with the movie begins as soon as the main plot begins. The latter half of the movie plays the spoilsport with a few unwarranted twists, which just disappoint the audiences. Even the climax is filled with unnecessary violence and gore, which further add up to the disappointment of the audiences.
Despite a poor execution, Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhaai has a good cinematography, thanks to Vijay Milton’s camera work.
Overall, Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhaai is a disappointing half baked cake spoiled by the baker itself!
