Sivakarthikeyan and Maria Ryaboshapka starrer Prince hit the screens today. It is directed by Anudeep KV. Let’s check out the review:
In the opening of the movie whole village boycotts Anand (Sivakarthikeyan) for a mistake he made. Viswanadham (Sivakarthikeyan’s father) also agrees with the villagers and gets ready to disown his son. Then opens the flashback of Anand, who is irregular as a schoolteacher. He finds himself falling in love with a British woman, Jessica (Maria Ryaboshapka) who is teaching English at the same school. While he thinks his father will say yes to their marriage, he says no for a reason. How Anand won the heart of Jessica and how he changed his father’s mind forms the rest of the story.
Father and son duo Sivakarthikeyan and Sathyaraj steal the show with their stellar performance. Their combination scenes are funny. Yet Maria is very gorgeous onscreen. She has very less scope to perform because of her un-lengthy characterization. Premgi Amaren’s character is sure to surprise the audience. Rest of the characters are just fillers.
S. Thaman with two chartbusters – Bimbiiki Pilapi and Jessica – delivered the needed background music for the film. Cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa did a fabulous job by presenting the best visuals. He picturized everything well. Anudeep as writer tried to stretch a silly line in his own formulatic way but falls apart. He established several silly moments and tried to extract humour out of them.
- Sivakarthikeyan’s Performance
- Climax Episode
- Silly Storyline
- Unfunny dialogues in many parts
Verdict: Prince is a madcap comedy that relies on silliness. However, it has an important message at its core. The comedy cooked by Anudeep worked in some places, but fell flat in others. The audience expected that a lot more jokes would have worked on the screen as it is an Anudeep film. However, the director disappointed them in a big way. So, think before you watch this movie.
