Siva (Sivakarthikeyan) is an aspiring actor and goes to auditions for KS Ravikumar’s directorial film. Then the director offers a challenging role to Siva. But, he fails to impress the director and turns into Remo (a female nurse) under interesting circumstances just to get close to his ladylove Dr Kavya (Keerthy Suresh). Interestingly, Kavya has already engaged to another guy. How did Siva win Kavya’s love? Did she accept Siva’s love? What happened to their love story.. forms the rest of the story.
Director Bakkiyaraj Kannan is quiet smart enough to select the cute couple as the main leads. Sivakarthikeyan is a multi-talented actor and enthralled the audience with a dual role Remo and Siva in the film. He has a lot of scope to exhibit his acting talent skills and Sivakarthikeyan makes an ardent effort to woo the audience as an all-rounder too!
Keerthy Suresh is beautiful as usual and she is one of the main reasons that help you to sail through the drama. While Motta Rajendran, Yogi Babu, Satish & Saranya does justice to their respective roles.
The film is vibrant in every department of the movie making. PC Sreeram’s cinematography comes in handy as he let his camera to do wonders even in cramped streets. We cannot see audiences putting their hands together for the visuals unless until there is PC Sreeram’s presence in it.
Surprisingly, the all song sequences aren’t mere speed breakers. Songs are captured beautifully and songs and background score by young sensation Anirudh are the two big things that make this film watchable this weekend. Editor Ruben deserves a special mention here for his cuts. The lead cast performances, visuals, music, and background score shine for this film especially.
The first half is engaging and of course the predictable interval bang. And then the second half is back with a romantic tale that begins all over again and a couple of songs before a routine fight sequence and happy ending draw curtains over this drama!
A mashed up story, pretended emotions, animated characters, and scruffy treatment are the disappointing aspects of Remo. If the director has taken more care in the story and screenplay department, the film would have emerged as a better product.
Remo is a good time pass entertainer and it will certainly appeal to its target audience. Neither a feel good love story nor a laugh riot– a pinch of advice to be picked! On the whole, it’s a cute romantic comedy which is enjoyable and vibrant.
