The film revolves around three couples. Divya ( Saniya Iyappan) and Arjun (Sri ) are an unhappy young couple. Rangesh (Vidharth) is unhappy with his overweight wife ( Abarnathi) and wants to divorce her because she is not serious about losing weight. Both these couples land up in the marriage counselling office of Mithra (Shraddha Srinath ) who is a marriage counsellor married succesfuully to Mano (Vikram Prabhu).
As Mithra solves their problems and seeks to unite them, she also keeps taking home fears of a possible break down of her own lovely marriage, and having heard so many marital problems, she vows never to repeat them in her own life. To this end, she tries her best to keep her life smooth and happy with Mano, from giving him gifts, cooking his favourite dishes, to giving him surprises and spending quality time together. She even gives him lessons on how to conduct their marriage happily.
All goes well, until one day when Mano discovers something that shatters his faith in her. What happens to her marriage? What is the fate of the other two couples? Can Mithra, the expert counsellor save her own marriage and restore Mano's faith in her?
The casting is a huge plus with all the actors doing a fine job of it. Each couple brings out the confusion and frustration of their situation.
The writing is solid with good detailing and supports the arc of each character.
The film deals with relationship issues common to todays' couples of different age groups making it an informative and relatable watch for family audiences.
The message from the film seems a noble one on how to sort out differences and makes life happier.
The way this is conveyed without any preaching and sans melodrama is the highlight.
Instead, scenes make you laugh, smile and cry and at the same time, make you reflect.
Gokul Benoy's visuals, the art department and the music and bgm all help on transporting you to the world of these characters.
However a few songs slow it down a bit.
Kudos to team potential studios for good family content and to the whole team of actors. A solid comeback for director Yuvaraj Dhayalan. A must watch film, in theatres from Oct 6th.
