Siddharth's "Theeya Velai Seiyanum Kumaru (TVSK)" is an engaging romantic-comedy entertainer with interesting twists and funny one-liners, according to film critics.
Directed by Sundar C, "TVSK" has an ensemble cast of Santhanam, Hansika Motwani, Ganesh Venkatraman, RJ Balaji, Jennifer, Devadarshini, Chitra Lakshmanan, Delhi Ganesh and Bosskey.
Kumar (Siddharth), who works in an IT company, is an introvert and feels shy talking to girls. There is George (Ganesh Venkataram) working in the same office who has a knack for catching the attention of young girls. Kumar prefers to remain a bachelor but changes his mind when he sees Hansika Motwani who joins the company as a new employee.
George impresses Sanjana and they both get engaged. Kumar renders the services of love guru Mokia (Santhanam) to make Sanjana fall in love with him. The rest of the story is about how Mokia helps Kumar to win the love of his dreams.
"TVSK" is filled with hilarious moments, thanks to Santhanam's amazing comic timing and dialogue delivery. However, the songs seem to mar the film's proceedings in the first half. But it picks up pace in the second half and floors the filmbuffs.
Here is what the critics have to say about "TVSK"
Moviebuzz: "TVSK is quite funny, to be honest not too complicated and indulgent. This engaging rom-com is sharply written, avoids cliches and the interesting twists are truly funny and entertaining. The pace is fast and the jokes come at furious speed."
Heaping praises on Santhanam's performance, S Saraswathi of Rediff wrote, "Santhanam is the saving grace of the movie and is more of a hero than either Siddharth or Ganesh. There is laughter every time he is on the screen and with his typical style of dialogue delivery, he effortlessly engages the audience."
According to Behindwood Review Board: "The typical Sundar C touches are almost invisible but the fact that the screenplay leaves no room for boredom is surely a credit to this veteran master at handling commercial movies. He has made his presentation and packaging contemporary. The involvement of Soodhu Kavvum's director, Nalan Kumarasamy, in the screenplay and dialogues perhaps has added authenticity to the urban setting."
Indiaglitz: "The movie as we said is easy going, but a large number of hiccups in the form of songs does not allow the movie to settle down, as it just stretches the movie and makes it appear like a tortoise trotting now and then."
"The climax is very old formulae revisited, makes you wonder if there could've been a better ending. The songs apart from 'Azhagendral' don't leave a hefty mark, so some average composition from Sathya, but the visuals in Japan by Gopi is tidy work indeed."
Verdict: This romantic comedy film is funny and entertaining
