Movies that carry a strong message normally lack entertainment value or vice versa. But director S T Gunasekaran has tried to dabble with both in `Innoruvan', which has a strong message besides all commercial elements packed together. It is a rag- to-riches story which is cliched from the word go.

The movie stress the need for positive thinking among the younger generation. However the director has far-stretched the theme and made it a fantasy fare with needless romance, stunt and oft-seen comedy sequences. At one point of time, it begins on a path that is much easily predictable.

Two newcomers Adhithya and Manoha make their foray to Kollywood with `Innoruvan'. The short and lean Adhitya plays Shiva, a rag-picker, who rise to become the owner of a paper mills thanks to power of positive thinking and his hard work.

Shiva (Adhithya) is a honest and sincere youth. He has no qualms of being an rag-picker for his survival. He meets a Judge (Judge), who brings a change in his life. He advices him to set great ideals in life and think positively that he would achieve them. Immediately he visualizes of buying a paper mills located opposite to a waste paper mart, where he works. He falls in love with Kavinaya (Manoha), daughter of a rich but selfish man (Manivannan). She hates Shiva until she comes to know the principles and ideals.

State HR & CE Minister Aranganayakam (Kadhal Dhandapani), who is known for his notorious ways, locks horns with Kavinaya's father for the latter tries to escape with Aranganayakam's black money worth Rs 1000 crore.

Fearing the Minister, he goes into hiding. Kavinaya becomes their target. However Shiva steps in and saves her. Meanwhile his hard work helps him realize his dream. One day he owns the paper mills. Now he takes the avtar of a macho-man and bumps off Aranganayakam and his gang.

Adhitya has done a good job in his debut venture. Manoha needs to be appreciated for her expressions. Kadhal Dhandapani plays his part well, while the star cast includes Crane Manohar, Azhagu and Vincent Roy among other. However all credits should go to M S Baskar who plays the owner of a waste paper mart. His `Chennai Thamizh' evokes instant laughter.  He has sung a song in his own voice set to tunes by Athish Uthiran.

Produced by S P Chandasekhar and Krishnaveni Chandrasekhar, the movie has commercial elements at its peak. What begins as a different film fizzles out to give a deja vu feel.
