Simbu is in a dilemma that many of the critics gave a negative response with the film. Simbu has worked so hard to get the shape of the characters and instead he also gained some weight. Besides all these, he has done a good work overall to get to that position. Now with mixed critic reviews, the movie didn’t get a good talk as the Director’s previous film.
Given that it’s been six months since the release of a Simbu (aka STR) film, quite naturally, fans go berserk when his name appears on screen, with the caption, ‘Neenge Illama Naan Illa’. The story kicks off in Dubai, where a detective (Kasturi) is on a mission to nab a most-wanted criminal. Before we can decide whether her new appearance is cool, we are shown an unconvincingly portrayed old man (Mahat), who starts narrating the story of his friend and the stuff that happened in the latter’s life three decades ago.
The story then moves to Chennai, where we encounter Ashwin thatha (Simbu, again). A gracefully aged man in his late 50s, he is yearning for a partner in his life. He is filthy rich and has VTV Ganesh and Rajendran as his aides. After ‘auditioning’ a few ladies, a disappointed Ashwin then falls in love with Ramya (Tamannaah), a much younger girl. Will Ramya be able to understand and appreciate Ashwin’s honest feelings for her?
Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan started its journey with tightly packed theaters and recorded more than 40% of occupancy across the states. With steady performance through out, the movie registered the decent opening of 5.50 crores from Tamil Nadu and 1.20 crores from Kerala. But with the word of mouth, the movie can become an average hit.
