But life takes a complete U turn when Varun meets with an accident and gets sight. But Deepa goes missing. Slowly, Varun pays heed to his parents and agrees to marry Sadhana.
There is a twist again when he meets Deepa’s father who informs him that she was kidnapped by the money lender. Is Varun able to find Deepa and with whom she ties the knot?
With run time of just two hours, Adhey Kangal directed by Rohin Venkatesan is a crispy thriller which is laced with comedy and matured romance.
Producer C V Kumar has the knack to spot the right talent (read director) and he does it again in Adhey Kangal. Though the film takes time to set in, it gains momentum and the second half is good.
Kalaiarasan performs well as visually challenged and Janani Iyer looks beautiful. Sshivada steals the show with a strong character. Bala Saravanan provides enough comic relief.
Ghibran’s music adds momentum, while Ravivarman’s cinematography is stylish. On the whole, despite some dull moments, Adhey Kangal is solid and strong.
