But when the gets stuck mid sea, all of them are in deep trouble, battling for life. What happens to them all? Does love succeed? What is the uncle's plot behind the girl becoming a monk?
The setting of the story is well portrayed showcasing the lifestyle of the people.
The actors have done justice to their roles. Jr Mgr plays the part of the burly boy innocent looking hero, well. Aishwarya Dutta fits the bill for her role with her accented diction. Yogi Babu is in a slightly different avatar than usual.
Srikanth Deva's musuc is peppy as usual with song remix of a retro track on keeping with the theme of the film.
The movie is colorful and has an interesting storyline, involving characters from different backgrounds.
The island and life there has been captured beautifully by the camera team
On the flip side a tad too much time is spent on the various activities of the friends, and only later the plot is speedily handled in the second half. A bit more crisp storytelling would have made for a better viewing experience.
