Oru Oorla Rendu Raja

Director

R. Kannan

Star Cast

Vimal, Priya Anand, Soori

Director R Kannan's Oru Oorla Rendu Raja is old wine in new bottle. It's a story that has been told a hundred times, this time with new set of actors. Kannan must have written his script on the sets and changed it according to the packaging.

It follows the formula and there are no twists and turns and even camera movement of hero and heroine introduction has been repeated in earlier films! Added to that the film also has a message about how "noise pollution" has become a health issue among those working in factories.

Azhagu (Vimal) and Michael (Soori) are on the run from some angry villagers and board a train to Chennai. On the way they meet Priya (Priya Anand) a good hearted doctor and our hero falls madly in love with her. Priya is a crusader fighting for some workers in a factory run by the unscrupulous Selva Vinayagam (Nasser) and his cruel wife (Anupama Kumar). Priya's best friend Kalpana (Visakha Singh) had died due to the carelessness of the factory management who are trying to suppress it.

The only silver lining in the film is Priya Anand, who is the real hero of the film. The script revolves around her and she looks glamorous in song sequences. D Imman's music is decent, but there are too many songs, and placement is jarring. Among the songs "Mazhakaatha..." is the pick of the lot. Vimal just sleeps walks through the movie, Soori's comedy is irritating while Nasser hams it up as the villain and Anupama Kumar is miscast as the villie!

On the whole Kannan has come out with a film which is targeted at B and C audiences. There is no logic, but the major plus is that the film has a running time of 2 hours and 5 minutes. Phew!

Verdict ? Run of the mill
