This ‘two’ is neither too good nor too bad
Sevathakaalai and Senthattikaalai (both roles played by Vinay) are twins and they vow to finish off each other while they are inside in their mother’s womb itself.
As they grow up, one leaves for Hyderabad and becomes a hawala operator, while the other becomes a thief and stays in his hometown itself.
In the meantime, there is a young woman Bhumika (Swasthika) whose father Beemaraju (Pradeep Rawat) has saved the Swiss bank account number of his politician boss as tattoo in her body. And there are two other heroines too (Samuthrika and Kesha Khambhati).
Beemaraju and Arundhathi (Kajal Pasupathi), the mistress of the politician, are behind the account number, while there is another character that tries to take revenge on the Kaalais’ father
Also there is Mandhiramoorthy (Arul Doss), a faux-gangster, who is after Senthatti. What happens when all these characters come together?
Exhausted while reading the story? We too are while watching the movie, for too many subplots spoil the show in Aayirathil Iruvar, a film directed by Saran.
The man behind many hits (Kadhal Mannan, Amarkkalam, Parthen Rasithen, Gemini), Saran should immediately upgrade himself to the present trend, if he is keen at continuring his success journey.
Vinay, who recently vowed us as a ruthless baddie in Mysskin’s Thupparivalavan, hardly impresses us in this flick. The heroines, despite carrying Tamill names, look alien. Aruldoss tickles the funny bone well.
It seems not just Saran, but his good friend and music director Bharadwaj too is caught in a time machine. Cinematography and other technical departments are average.
To sum it up, Saran has tried out a Crazy Mohan kind of comedy in Aayirathil Iruvar. But it has worked only to a certain extent.
