En Aaloda Seruppa Kaanom, directed by K.P. Jagan, is a comedy movie starring Anandhi and Tamizh. It is the story of a boy, Krishnan, who tries to save the father of the girl he fancies, from militants. The movie has a touch of Cinderella, as Krishnan first meets Sandhya after he find her slipper, and see saws from comedy to drama to action genre. The actors, Anandhi and Tamizh have excellent chemistry with each other and also shine in their individual scenes. There are very good dialogue moments, that illicit real laughs from the audience and aren’t just cringe inducing and uncomfortable.
Director K.P. Jagan is an apt person to direct the movie and never really loses the control of the tone, which is an important thing when you’re making a movie that whiplashes from comedy, to action, to drama and action. The presence of the militants in the movie could’ve been insensitive and played for laughs, but is instead dealt with enough gravitas to justify the plot point while also not weighing down the movie in self-important seriousness.
The music by Ishaan is appropriately peppy and thrilling, and the cinematography by Sukaselvan is realistic and doesn’t distract from the performances and the set pieces.
