Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raniyum Movie Review

Love birds


Gautham (Harish Kalyan) suffers from a bad childhood as his mother gets separated from his father (Ponvannan) and moves away with another man.

Though Gautham thinks that the fault is fully on her mother, it is actually his father’s, as his violent and disrespectful acts force her to break up.

Gautham grows up as an angry man. He doesn’t know how to sugarcoat things and calls a spade a spade. He comes across Tara (Shilpa Manjunath), a practical girl who is a queen of hearts (Got the idea behind the title?).

Though both are poles apart in their ideas, they get attracted to each other. But, Tara finds it tough to handle the attitude of Gautham, as he is angry and over-possessive.

Soon, they realise that they can’t stay together and decide to move on. However, they could not do so because of their love for each other. Did they unite or not?


Directed by Ranjit Jeyakodi, Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raniyum is a modern day love story that tries to explore the relationship issues between urban young men and women.

Harish Kalyan has performed well, and reminds us of Vijay Deverakonda of Arjun Reddy in many a scene. In fact, the film itself seems to have inspired by that movie.

Shilpa Manjunath has delivered a bold act and looks beautiful too. Ma Ka Pa Anand tickles well the funny bone, while Bala Saravanan, Ponvannan and others are right choices for their respective roles.

The film’s two biggest highlights are music by Sam CS and cinematography by Kavin Raj. Both departments elevate the movie and add value to the script and performance.

Though there are some needless scenes and the climax appears to be extended, Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raniyum will be welcomed by youth audience. It’s a breezy rom-com with some beautiful moments.

Rating: 3.25 out of 5
