However, Arjun claims that there is no love in the marriage; he is guided to come to a place by a stranger while there is a break during his case hearing.

Analysis:

Coming to the screenplay and story, the first half was constantly having the thrill to ride on the fun for knowing what will happen next approaching till the interval block. The second half was also had a travel with a smooth drive along with the thrill to know what will happen in someone’s life if there is an opportunity to restart the past, the story was as usual which will remind us of some random Hollywood film of such sort (Maybe similar to ‘Bruce Almighty’ and some other movies of such a genre). Anyhow, the overall movie and the presentation were entertaining; the first half was quite lengthy compared to the second half. Besides them, the technical aspects like cinematography, VFX, and editing was decent. Also, the songs and background score were ok for this new age triangle love story.

Performance:

Looking at the performance, firstly, Ashok Selvan’s performance was interesting but felt like he was overacting at few places. Anyways, he has pulled off his possible scores in the romance sequences; he really deserves a special appreciation for trying out a flavored and different genre. Next to him, Ritika Singh who played the role of a friend and wife of Ashok has given a sweet performance. Also, we can’t be without appreciating the cute Vani Bhojan for delivering a performance with owing a cold character. Apart from that, Sha Ra as Ashok and Ritika’s friend, M. S. Bhaskar as Ritika’s father, Santhosh Prathap as Vani Bhojan’s love interest and many others have performed well. Lastly, Vijay Sethupathi and Ramesh Thilak have done their extended cameo roles well.

What works?

1) Narration

2) Performances of the actors

3) Technical aspects

What doesn’t work?

1) Few logic mistakes

2) More dialogues

On the whole, ‘Oh My Kadavule’ is a fun-struggle love story of a youngster which is pathetic for him but entertaining for us!

Verdict:‘Oh My Kadavule’ is a thrilling ‘restart’ game with a usual climax!
