Romeo Juliet finally changes the way Kollywood has been going with too many horror flicks and is a refreshing romantic entertainer, if you are ready to forgive many of its familiar scenes and dialogs designed to defame the women.

Quick Glance

What's great?

  • • Jayam Ravi's subtle yet interesting portrayal

  • • Hansika steals the show with a lot of expressions

  • • Music by D Imman which is peppy and interesting

  • • Youthful entertainer with a lot of romantic scenes and fun dialogs

What's not?
  • • Repetitive and familiar scenes similar to movies like 'Ok Ok'

  • • Too many crude dialogs aimed at women

Jayam Ravi and Hansika play the loving couple, obviously but the problem is she wants a rich boyfriend which Ravi is not. They split up and Poonam Bajwa enters the scene. It's all about them getting back together in the end.

The Cast

Jayam Ravi reflects a modern day youngster with ease while Hansika is the queen of the movie with some awesome performance. She can't be compared with Jyothika yet she is definitely at her best in the role of an annoying, demanding girlfriend. The supporting cast in the movie is equally good but it is the main lead pair who rules.

The Team

Director Lakshman has took the tried and tested route of a romantic movie with little story but lots of fun moments and dialogs. He has done a good job if not a perfect one!While it is made as an enjoyable entertainer with a strong focus on young audience, many scenes are repetitive and might sound too familiar. However, it is the decent presentation that saves the day. Music by D Imman is another strong aspect for the movie besides cinematography by Soundar Rajan.

Bottom line – Purely for the young lot with some clichéd flaws!

Certified Fresh – Yes!

Stars – 3.5/5
