Director: Phanindra Babu
Music Director: Sameer-Shiva
Cinematographer: S.P. Balaji
Editor: V. Vijay
Phanindra Babu has narrated the unfolding events in a rather interesting manner with a heavy dose of comedy.
A gang of drug-smugglers take an apartment on rent in an apartment block where the watchman, a dry-cleaner, a newspaper-vendor and a mechanic seem to know collectively about everything taking place in the block. The gang of four youths draws up a plan to take the four workmen (above-said) into their group to rob the residents of the apartment block.
A police inspector under suspension happens to be a resident of the apartment block. Aaya Vada Sutta Kathai is a hard-hitting statement on typical urban-style apartment lives where neighbours living in adjacent apartments are unaware of each other’s presence in the same apartment block.
The backdrop of the script is a novel one but the screenplay-writer goofs up things in a big way, making the script interesting. The major folly is that a script of thriller ‘genre’ has as its backdrop a fun-filled setting. Everything about the apartment block - its residents, the objective of the drug-smuggling gang, etc.
Debutant Avitej's dancing, fighting and facial expressions seem to have been consciously modeled. Heroine Suparna doesn’t have much screen presence to boast off but does her brief role admirably well. Manoharan, who plays the police inspector under suspension, has lived his character realistically.
Sai Prashanth, the gang-leader, has done a fair job. Balaji’s cinematography is pleasing for the eyes while Sameer-Shiva’s music takes a backseat when compared to the background score composed by Ved Shankar. Phanindra Babu has narrated the unfolding events in a rather interesting manner with a heavy dose of comedy.
