Love is everywhere. It is here and in the unseen worlds. The thought of love itself is beautiful and Selvaraghavan’s latest movie Irandam Ulagam takes it to the next level. But let me warn you that it is an esoteric work that could be a trap for regular audience! Having said that it has an alluring magic of visuals that will enchant you.
Irandam Ulagam has two separate worlds and it is about the stories that unfold in a parallel universe. Selvaraghavan narrates the two tales with eye-pleasing visuals. Ramya (Anusha Shetty) has a liking towards Madhu Balakrishnan (Arya), but he initially refuses her offer for marriage. But in the dream world, Arya tries to woo Anushka.
The story keeps juggling between the love story of dream world and the tale set here, the place where we are living. After turning down Ramya’s offer, Madhu falls in love with her and approaches her to marry her, but this time, she rejects his offer citing that she has found another man. How he tries to win her heart and change her stand form the crux of their story.
In the other world, Arya struggles to impress Anushka, who is a tough woman. There is also a plot of two clans fighting over Amma (mother love). The story takes a little interesting turn when Arya, on Earth, meets the people of other world.
Rating:2.5/5Selvaraghavan has given a symbolic touch to the story and there are times that give you tough time to understand Irandam Ulagam. His colourful frames will not let your eyes to loose the attention of his imaginary world. Scene after scene, the director comes up with visuals, which is of international standards.
There are a little surprises on its way and occasional twists to the story. But what the movie misses out big time is the element that keeps you entertained till the end. Irandam Ulagam appears dull sans necessary commercial elements.
