Kannan (Arulnithi) is a differently-abled (hearing and speech impaired) barber who lives in Ooty. He is a big fan of actor Vivekh (Vivekh).
One day, he meets Vivekh and his joy knows no bounds. And Kannan becomes close to the actor and helps him out. Vivekh too becomes friendly with him.
In the meantime, Sandhya (Tanya Ravichandran) falls in love with Kannan and conveys it through Vivekh. But Kannan is not ready to accept her proposal and turns it down. What happens next?
Trust Radha Mohan to come out with light-hearted emotional tales and Brindhavanam is one more to the list. Though there are shades of Mozhi, his earlier film, Brindhavanam stands out thanks to the treatment and narration.
Arulnithi gets a meaty role, similar to the one played by Jyothika. Though he has showed improved in terms of performance, he still has to improve a little. For Vivekh, it is a cakewalk.
Tanya Ravichandran is good and the rest of the cast includes M S Baskar, Cell Murugan, Thalaivasal Vijay, Subbu Panchu and Doubt Senthil. Even actors in small roles have performed well and leave an impact.
Vishal Chandrasekhar has presented soothing music, M S Vivekanand’s cinematography has captured well the scenic locales of Ooty. T S Jay’s editing is good.
On the flipside, certain scenes seem to be contrived and stretch for effect. But you can find more flowers than thorns in his Brindhavanam, thaks to Radha Mohan.
