Goli Soda is one of the latest movies to hit the screens for this weekend. With Goli Soda the Pasanga kids are back this time as adolescents with more important roles to play. More importantly, cinematographer turned director Vijay Milton has taken care of direction, which is his second flick as a director, his first being Alagai Irukirai Bayamai Irukkirathu, which got released years ago. The movie has been produced and released by director Lingusamy under his Thirupathi Brothers banner.
Goli Soda is about the lives of four young adolescents who earn for their livelihood as workers in one of the busiest vegetable markets of South India, which is in Koyambedu, Chennai. Goli Soda might seem like an outdated concept for many in this modern generation, but people who have lived in 80s and 90s know them well for sure. The movie, as apt to the title, tells the audiences how vigorously common men would react to pressure situations they face in their lives.
Director Vijay Milton has made Goli Soda in a new setting, which the Tamil cinema audiences are not quite familiar with. The director has tried to tell the story in a sharp and edgy way, without boring the audiences much. The movie proceeds at a steady pace and does not drag anywhere. The dialogues are sharp and the camera angles by the cinematographer turned director makes the watching quite engaging and entertaining.
The Pasanga boys have shown maturity in their roles and they stick to their portrayals without any issues. The movie, however, has some cinematic scenes, which the audiences might feel a bit overstated given the context and the setting of the story and the characters.
