Romance is one of the interesting genres of filmmaking and it is not easy to bring the greatness of love exactly and naturally on screen. Only a few directors have made that in a great way. More than the songs, it is the plot and the screenplay that keeps a romance flick interesting to watch till the end. Sillunu Oru Sandhippu is a latest Tamil movie to hit the screens and the movie is set to be a romance flick. However, the movie lacks good content and the screenplay is nothing but a heart break to many movie watchers.
Here is the plot of Sillunu Oru Sandhippu, which starts its proceedings from Ooty. Ashok (Vimal) is a school boy who falls in love with his classmate called Geetha (Oviya). However, the school period love ends abruptly when Geeta’s family moves from Ooty to Chennai. While the Ooty part of the story is a flashback, Ashok is a grown up now and returns to India from United States. He now falls in love with another girl (Dipa Shah). This time everything falls in at the right place and the relationship is proceeding towards the marriage. However, fortunately or unfortunately, Ashok’s new girl finds out his affair that he had in school and the rest of the story is predictable.
With a not so great script in hand, director Ravi Lallin attempts to offer a comic laced romance to his target audiences. However, nothing comes up good if the base is not set right. For romantic flicks, the screenplay matters a lot, and the director has not got that thing right. Hence, everything else looks pretty ordinary and even the songs too disappoint the audiences. Mano bala’s attempt at comedy proves to be a failure.
Double meaning dialogues, irresponsive songs, josh less performance of actors make Sillunu Oru Sandhippu a heartless love story.
