After a long gap, its again time for a red hot review of a movie and I had been waiting for a long time to watch a decent movie and I just did that yesterday.
Saroja - A good attempt by the successful Chennai-28 crew and once again, they have emerged victorious.
The movie starts off with a song featuring Saroja who forms the crux of the story and that is the simple reason why the movie is titled so. And the next few scenes has the bubbling youth of Premji, Charan, Siva and Vaibhav rocking all the way. They start from Chennai to watch a Cricket match that is going to be held in Hyderabad. They go on a van and because of an accident, their travel is halted. So, they go in another route which Shiva says, is the short route. And then whatever adventure and action that they face forms the rest of the story. Premji is a jolly go lucky cricket fan with a great affinity towards love and Cupid strikes every time he sees a girl. Charan works in a company and is married and also has a child. His brother Vaibhav is a vetti guy who often whiles away time with his niece. And then there is Siva who is a TV serial actor. Meantime, Prakashraj is a millionaire and his only daughter is Saroja. She goes missing one day and Jayaram is the Asst Commissioner of Police who offers to help Prakashraj in finding out Saroja. What happens to Saroja??? Did they find her out? This is the story. With this simple storyline, the director, with good cinematography and background score to support him, has made this wonderful thriller cum comedy movie and this is indeed a successful attempt. The music by Yuvan adds to the success of the movie with most of the songs with its feet tapping music keeping the viewers engrossed.
* The simple story line well etched to form a nice thriller.
* The comedy sequences involving Siva and Premji Amaran rock!!
* The Background score is good and gives the much needed feel that a thriller movie demands!!
* The initial few scenes are a bit too complex and it takes some time to know what the movie is all about.
Overall, a neat movie with good performances from everyone involved to provide a visual treat to the movie hungry audience.
Bottomline -> Saroja "Scintillates"!!!
Rating -> 7.5/10
