We always envy and mumble about things that we don’t have, agree? Any more snippets and it would become a spoiler before you watch the movie. Dreams and reality are indeed fascinating; the very idea of it makes us wonder.The title of the movie made waves two decades back when Kamal Hassan’s time defying movie thrilled the audience then with a par intelligence movie. Now Siddharth and team have adopted the same title for the remake of Kannada hit “Lucia” which revolves around dream and reality, so yes the title only makes ample justice.

Dream on:

When Christopher Nolan’s Inception hit the stands, it took days for us to understand the concept of dreams layered between reality, EnakkulOruvan too would make people wonder and dwell in awe of how much we long for things, that we actually start dreaming about it. Siddharth as Vicky aka Vignesh shuttles between two roles, a star basking in limelight, most wanted by paparazzi and the other quite opposite.

When a film maker adopts a non-linear strategy to convey his intent, screenplay and editing becomes the biggest challenge, EnakkulOruvan’s crisp editing and engaging screenplay plays the key. Siddharth is sleep deprived an insomniac who comes across an illegal drug gangster who gives him the “Lucia” pill that would entice him to a fantasy world.   Trotting between two worlds, the storyline beehives on the character of Vignesh, his wants, likes and character; how he woos Divya (played by Deepa) and how reality takes a toss forms the rest of the plot.

Considering the genre of the film, the lesser you know before you enter the theatres the more you are bound to enjoy.

Whats good:

Undoubtedly the technical part of the movie comes before anything else. Razor sharp editing by Leo John has assisted director Prasath to concentrate more on shuttling between the non-linear story.  Be it infusing dream into reality or other way around the director has master crafted a plot that hooks the audience to come out of this experience whole heartedly. Siddharth has come a long way from breaking the stereotyped image of a chocolate boy, in Ennakkuloruvan he is seen as a more matured actor and sizzles as he plays the torch light shiner. With romance as one of the prime aspects, Deepa weighs her character rather pretty well in both the stories. Gopi’s cinematography deserves special mention, crafting Black & white with a hint of sepia touch for one story and the normal for other has done enough home work for a well-rewarded outcome.

Santhosh Narayanan yet again delivers what was expected out of him with his magic wand, be it the songs or BGM.

Things to ponder:

1. Whilst music as a whole is a winner, the visualization of the songs does little to justify them. For instance “Yendiipaadi” song looks so out of place considering the lyrics and nature of the song itself.

2. A lot has been considered in penning Siddharth’s looks, however not enough attention has been bought with room for mistakes, a little closer look and one could find out the error too early.

In all, EnakkulOruvan is value for money, hooks you to the end  leaving a lasting impression on our minds.

Verdict: Bonds well
