Debut director Ramprakash Rayappa’s Tamizhukku En Ondrai Azhuthavum is based on geo-magnetic storm and its aftermath in Chennai city. Interestingly, the director has done his paper work with sheer perfection and packaged this out-of-the-box concept in a fairly engaging manner.

The film starts with a brief voice over narration (by actor Aadhi) where we are explained about the geo-magnetic storm and how it deactivates the mobile network. He also introduces the key characters in the film- a real estate agent Mukil (Dinesh), his lover Simi (Bindhu Madhavi) who is stuck in a pithole, with a eighty ton gigantic 'Vasthu' rock under suspension which is ready to fall on her at any time!

The only way that Simi can escape from this danger is that, her text message should reach Mukil. There is a hyperactive science geek Vasanth (Nakul) who is on his mission to activate the dead cell-phone signal. Mean time, there is a call taxi driver Raja (Sathish) and his car which has a bomb planted by a terrorist outfit waiting to explode once the mobile network resumes.

Like the synopsis, the film too is complicated and the problem here is that you’re never invested in any of the characters, who walk in and out without leaving any impact. An interesting idea which looks good on paper but never takes off as a film and in the end has a docu feel to it.

However, in spite of having a bunch of new faces the scene stealer is the veteran Urvashi, who plays the witty and intelligent mother of Nakul. The scene where she sends the love messages to Nakul’s girl friend is a scream. Ajay who played the guy who steals cell phones and his conversations with Sathish are hilarious, the characterization of Sathish’s girl friend (Shalu) is another enjoyable comic moment in the film. Performance wise, Nakul is okay, while Dinesh continues from where he left in Attakathi with the same expressions. Bindhu Madhavi has done an adequate job. Sathish’s one liners are good and once again he shines in a well written comic role.

Technically, Thaman’s background score stands out and also couple of songs are enjoyable. Cinematography by Deepak Kumar Pathy is quite good as he captures the busy Chennai roads with ease while editing by Sabhu Joseph is coherent.

Overall, Tamizhuku En Ondrai Azhuthavum is an experimental film which lacks the fizz and ends up as an average movie.

Verdict: Average
