Vikatan talkies’ Siva Manasula Sakthi is a youthful entertainer. Dealing with the mutation of friendship that buds and blossoms into love, the film has captured some enjoyable niceties in the process.
Siva (Jiiva) is a jolly good fellow. After failing twice in his twelfth exams, Siva takes up a job as a delivery boy in a courier company. While all his days slip away travelling hither and yon in the city’s destinations, Siva happily spends the nights in his friends’ company. Together, they drink, smoke, joke and make merry. Siva’s mother (Urvasi) is happy with the meagre income he gives her to run the family.She always pampers her only son and enjoys life’s small pleasures along with him. In fact, Siva’s only sister Viji knows him better than their mom.
One day on a commute out of the city, Siva meets Shakthi(Anuya). Feeling mutually attracted both exchange mundane details about themselves during the travel. Siva feels heady to have Shakthi’s friendship and as soon as he gets back home, making use of the details furnished by her, both try meeting each other at their respective workplaces. But to their dismay, all the details turn out to be bogus and made up. The disappointment provokes both Siva and Shakthi and soon, both of them are pitted against each other.
What happens next? Do they fall in love? Does the love last long? Or do they just end up as fighter-cocks? SMS will definitely make you enjoy the experiences.
Jiiva is just in his element. With that local lingo, casual attitude and typical youthful handling, he is the one who steals the show. For Anuya, it is an effortless role. Mouthing the dialogues perfectly in line with her dubbed voice and showing off an equally adamant attitude towards Siva, she is the lady who wins at the end. Urvashi has done a comedy-sprinkled role in the movie. Many of her dialogues kindle a good laugh. Ku.Gnanasambandan as Anuya’s father too has done a good job. Arya appears in a couple of scenes as Anuya’s fiance.
Yuvan’s tunes are full of stylish raps and rocking music. Camera by Vijay Milton and Vaithi travel alng with the story. Rajesh.M. has presented a truly youth-related storyline through SMS. Lot of places reflect reality and hence is well-received.
