Simbu comes back to the silver screen after a year with Idhu Namma Aalu. And we must say that it is one hell of a comeback for the actor.
Idhu Namma Aalu is romantic comedy that brings together hit pair Nayanthara and Simbu after many years. Our critic H Shivkumar is watching the film at a theater right now and has sent us his first impression of Pandiraj's Idhu Namma Aalu.
Idhu Namma Aalu, is the story of Shiva, an IT company manager, played by Simbu. He lives with his friend Vasu, played by Soori. One day he gets a call from his father saying that he has arranged a meeting with a girl for marriage. This is where Shiva comes across Myla, played by Nayanthara. Shiva falls for her instantly, but here comes the twist. Myla is Priya's friend, Shiva's ex girlfriend, played by Andrea Jeremiah.
What follows is a series of cat and mouse game between Myla and Shiva over the phone. Myla is super curious about how Shiva's relationship began and came to an end. This leads us to the flashback, where the events that lead up to love between Shiva and Priya and their subsequent break up, is shown.
So as Shiva is trying to convince Myla to marry him, Priya is also calling him and asking him to take her back. Myla finally says yes to Shiva and two decide to meet, what happens when they finally meet and whether this marriage will take place or not makes for the rest of the tale.
Pandiraj's direction is excellent. He keeps the movie breezy and light. Simbu is super charming as Shiva, and his dynamic with Soori is really fun to watch. Soori shines in the comedy department and is bound to make you laugh with plenty of punchlines. The romance between Simbu and Andrea is sizzling, while his awkward chemistry with Nayanthara is very realistic.
An interesting twist right before the interval has made things even more engaging. Can't wait for the second half!
