Filmmaker Laxman has come out with a movie that speaks about challenge thrown to an online reviewer to come up with film that is far away from cliches and effectively admired and adored by all. 

In today's technology-driven world, what these reviews mean to the masses and the way movies are torn apart in social media reviewers form the crux.

The filmmaker has cast three stars apt for the role - Gaurav, Bobby Simha and Mirchi Shiva. And Lakshmi Devi plays the female centric role. The picture-in-picture speaks about why movies are made in one pattern and why mostly they succeed and enthuse masses.

It begins with a blogger not impressed with a movie tears it apart. He wonders how people could enjoy such a film. Meanwhile he gets an opportunity to come up with a movie by a television channel. Given responsibility he sets out for a story.

He understands that no film is complete without action, comedy, romance and sentiment. He meets three youngsters - Mani (Shiva), Krish (Gaurav) and Amudhan (Bobby Simha). They are different from each other.

They are followed by the blogger who wants to make a movie out of them. There is Devi (Lakshmi Devy) in the scheme of things. Though there are some interesting elements in the story, the execution could have been better. 

The first part is racy and engaging. Whereas the latter part is tad slow. Shiva with his comical timing and Bobby Simha with his intense portrayal steal the show. Gaurav and Lakshmi Devy do the job entrusted to them well indeed.

Laxman Kumar's cinematography is catchy and colorful while Richard Kevin's scissors does a good job. Karthik Acharya's background score is impressive.On the whole the movie is splendid and refreshing.

It should appeal to next gen audience.
