Eashwar, Dhanya, Nassar, Bala Singh
More than a decade back Bala made Sethu, a classic which even today continues to inspire new directors. Waterman, said to be a former assistant of late Malayalam writer and director Lohitadas, debut film in Tamil Virunthali is another tribute to the landmark film.
The film is poor in imagination, content and visuals and you have non-actors in the lead making it tedious to watch. It requires a lot of patience to sit through this big bore, that lacks basic fundamentals of filmmaking.
Eashwar, is a tough to crack village moneylender with a heart of gold. He and his mother live in a palatial bungalow, waiting for the return of his father (Nassar) involved in a murder from prison. His side kick is Singampuli, who makes crude and crass remarks.
Eashwar soon falls in love with the village postman Bala Singh?s daughter Dhanya, a fiercely independent woman who due to circumstances is forced to do her dad?s job. Enter the local Policeman Cheran Raj who is at loggerheads with Eashwar and has an eye on Dhanya.
Meanwhile Eashwar due to the influence of Dhanya turns a Good Samaritan and helps a friend to get married to his lover, which creates the twist in the story leading to a contrived sentimental climax.
Should we say more? Even the music of SS Kumaran is bad. It is a tacky film that makes you feel soggier than soggy popcorns. Yuck!
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
