Story: Kumar (Anand), a mechanic, believes that everything happens for a cause. His life crisscrosses that of Mahalakshmi (Swetha), daughter of moneylender Appu (Kavitha) and the fall in love. But will their love succeed?
Movie Review : Idhyam Thiraiyarangam means ‘The theatre called heart’ and director Ramki should be defended for his choice of words. But, he should have kept in mind that too much happens with one’s heart, it could suffer a breakdown. In this case, it’s the audience which suffers.
Ramki tries so much with the script that all attempts fail. It starts off with Kumar explaining to friend Birbal (Sukumar) that a butterfly flapping its wings in one part of the globe could result in a devastating effect in another part (read butterfly effect). But, soon, all hell breaks loose.
After his Vivek-Chaya Singh starrer ‘Solli Adippen’ didn’t release, Ramki’s back, but with very little. As Kumar, Anand does more than required and comedy is definitely not for him. Sukumar as Birbal is anything but witty. How much humour can one squeeze out with one pack of condom in two-and-a-half hours? Swetha, too, is left with little to do. TV actor Kavitha is unconvincing as horoscope-obsessed, violence-loving and sometimes tear-jerking Appu.
The uneven screenplay turns melodramatic in the second half. Tears flow, people fight and the movie ends. Actually no, the director keeps the visuals coming as the final credits roll up on one side. It appears that the editing department had no discretion leaving a lot of fluff.
The movie neither begins nor ends on a simple note. Above all, the abundance of drama leaves you with a bitter taste
