A breakthrough for both Jeyam Ravi and Hansika, after their respective 'Nimirndhu Nil' and 'Aranmanai', in their forte this time, that is romcom, 'Romeo Juliet' is a thorough entertainer.  Lakshman returns to the silver screen with another love story,but this time as director and  here's how the saga unfolds.

Aishwarya (Hansika) is smitten by the opulence that she sees in Karthick (Ravi) and decides to make him her better half. She follows Karthick and keeps an eye on him, while she prays to the almi on the other hand. Love succeeds, they get plan their wedding and that is when the realisation of Karthick's profession and pay package comes as a rude shock to Aishu. She takes this as her cue to break the relationship. But Karthick is strong in his emotions. So he makes his comeback in the most innovative manner. How? Head to the theatres.

Love story is usually associated with mushy romantic moments, duets sung running around a tree and walking along the coast, holding hands. But Lakshman chooses an entirely different, practical and edgy outlook to the entire concept. Over and above being practical, he takes the story along a comic outline, keeping you thoroughly entertained throughout. Well placed interval block and the colourful cinematography by Soundar, along with the taut screenplay, keep you glued to the seat.

The prime characters in the story are played by Jeyam Ravi and Hansika, while VTV Ganesh, Poonam Bajwa and Vamsi Krishna play supportive roles. The three supporting actors, who influence the story a great deal, have done their equal best, optimising the space they have on screen.

After a long gap, we get to see Ravi here, once again, as a sincere romantic hero, head over heels in love with his angel. His emotions ranging from the strength in his soft romance to the subtlety in his revenge, are all titch. Containing his action hero instincts, Ravi still comes around as a manly charm. On the other hand, Hansika is the right cast for the heroine's haughtiness. Although her ideas are practical, her behaviour is unreasonable - and Hansika has pulled this off, convincingly. A couple of well executed dance numbers, and with befitting score throughout, Imman has displayed variety in this film.

Concept of love, breakup and revenge is handled intelligently, making for a strong plus point for the film. Another positive for the movie is background score, which adds an extra edge to the story. Colourful cinematography and screenplay, along with the thread of comedy throughout the story, make up for a thoroughly entertaining package.

However, it is not necessary that every story must have a happy ending; sometimes, it is even a spoiler. The secondary love threads seem to have woven incomplete. But for these, 'Romeo Juliet' is an absolute indulgence.

Verdict: Keeps you entertained for all of the three hours
