A terrible, in a much precise term a disaster for many cell phone buffs, a solar flare turns down the city in high turmoil with no frequencies. The connections are eliminated (Director shows how people turn crazy without the mobile in stock shots) and few characters get imbibed to serious situations. Coming from debutant filmmaker Ram Prakash Rayappan and produced by Chandran, the film ‘Tamizhukku En Ondrai Azhuthavum’ stars Attakathi Dinesh, Nakul, Bindu Madhavi and Aishwarya Dutta in lead roles alongside Ethir Neechal fame Satish.


A usual day that starts of well with news flashing about the unusual solar flare that would sending all mobile networks to sleep for some time. Critically turning into a situation they had envisaged, Attakathi Dinesh loses contact with his ladylove Bindu Madhavi (who has just professed her love to him after his consistent attempts). A young chap with no job, but a fabulous scientist with his own creativities is on the verge of finding solution to it. There is a simple yet beautiful Aishwarya Dutta, who cannot stop fantasizing about him. A call taxi driver (Satish) with hopeless start after losing the faith of his yet to be father-in-law goes on the usual drive. Executing smart plans to bomb off the city with mobile device, a terrorist is travelling in his car.


When few characters are established in different ambiences with a serious issue in the backdrop, we expect them to get connected, but director Ram Prakash seems to have diverted towards two conflicts. The mobile networks affected by solar flare. If this is an issue, we are instantly shifted to the terrorist’s plan to devastate the entire city. This actually turns our attention from the love story of Dinesh-Bindu Madhavi and Nakul-Aishwarya mission. Finally, it’s an underdog hired by a Marvadi Settu, who becomes a hero eclipsing everyone. This is somewhere surprising, but doesn’t fulfill our movie watching experience. With Dinesh and Nakul having some star status, they should have been utilized with some substantial characterisations. We find the characters always involved in lots and lots of conversations, which are useless at point of time. Their talks are not useful and anywhere helping the screenplay to proceed to next level. A dangerous terrorist suddenly turns goofy locking horns for a silly reason with the underdog agent. The background score by Thaman and cinematography by Deepak Kumar Padhy are decent attempts offering the best enhancements.


Nakul has tried something out of his way and he deserves best appreciations. Bindu Madhavi looks beautiful and her role could have been sketched with more elegance. There should have been some significance to her love story with Dinesh. Manobala fails to get his scope. Urvasi expresses the best performance, but her role is too artificial to enjoy after a certain extent. Ethir Neechal Satish becomes almost a protagonist in this tale and he has to thank his director for this offer.

What works?

1. Basic concept of this film
2. Ethir Neechal Satish and Bindu Madhavi.
3. Convincing and perfect climax

What doesn’t work?

1. Lack of engagement in many parts of the screenplay
2. Too many complicated ‘Technical’ terms used by Nakul, Urvasi and others.
3. Logic missing

When you hear this script in one line, you would really get engrossed, but the lack of proper impact in the screenplay with too many distractions makes it more mediocre. If the unwanted elements had been eliminated and some engaging ingredients had been included, the audiences as the title suggests would have credited No.1 for this film.

Verdict: Signal turns weak now and then

Rating: 4/10
