Comedy and romance are the biggest strength of Boopathy Pandian. He proved it in his previous films like Devadayai Kandein and Thiruvilayadal Aarambam. Once again he has come out with a same formula. Kadhal Solla Vandhen speaks about a boy’s desperate love for a girl, who is 2 years elder than him. Though it begins as a routine commercial style in a college campus, it takes twists and turns and ends on an interesting note.
Prabhu (Balaji), is a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy, who always loves to tease others. But all of a sudden, he completely changes his thought process and falls in love at first sight with Sandhya (Meghana Raj). He starts loving her without even knowing her name or any other details. Things starts getting worser when he realizes that Sandhya is 2 years elder to him. But, Prabhu finally decides to stick on his love and decides her to win at any cost. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Though the film starts comically, it gets a bit serious towards the climax. Balaji has shown maturity in the film and his performance is better in this flick than his debut film Pattalam. Sabesh Karthik is refreshing and gives a relief through his lively comedy. His body language and dialogue delivery evokes instant laughter. Meghana Raj looks like Nayanthara in some angles. She is gorgeous and its tailor made role for her. The plus point of the film, is the outstanding music of Yuvan Shankar Raja and photography of Rana. K.L. Praveen and N.B. Srikanth’s Editing is okay. The drawback of the film is climax, which is a predictable one. Director could have handled it better. Nonetheless, Kadhal Solla Vandhen is a time pass movie.
Verdict: Above Average
