Inga Enna Solluthu Review - Nothing Clearly Told

Inga Enna Solluthu  - Nothing Clearly Told!!!
Bharath Vijayakumar
VTV Ganesh is a household name now, thanks to VTV and his later releases which utilized his comic potential and peculiar voice. Now with 'Inga Enna Solludhu' directed by V.Selva (Vincent Selva) he forays as the leading man. He is also in charge of story, screenplay and dialogues!  Will he be able to enthrall the audience in a full length role? Read on to find.


Only the makers should be able to tell the plot as the entire narration hangs loose. It is essentially a collection of incidents in the life of Ganesh which he recollects to Santhanam. A message awaits us at the end but we are exhausted beyond redemption by that time.


Ganesh seems to have made an earnest attempt. But the poorly sketched role is tough both on him and the audience who have to put up with his idiosyncrasies. His poor lip sync also mars the impact. In fact all the characters in the film are poorly written and the actors seem completely disinterested. Santhanam has restrained himself considerably and this seems justified in the climax which reveals his identity. But those with a keen eye will see the twist coming. STR in a lengthy cameo does his bit but nothing that makes the film even remotely interesting. An actress of substance, Meera Jasmine too is utilized poorly. She does however make a reasonable impact towards the later half as the helpless housewife. The only persons who look convincing in their parts are director K.S.Ravikumar and Mayilsaamy.


Raajevan(art),Rajasekhar(DOP) and Antony (Editing) are the names you see in the starting credits. But as the movie progresses you are left wondering what are these talented technicians going to contribute to this film. Some of these technicians are also seen in front of the camera in 'Inga Enna Solludhu'. But the purpose seems to only expose their acting (in)abilities. Dharan's tunes does have a peppy feel to it. But that's about it.
Clumsy Narration:
It is tough to imagine that the film has been made by someone who made his debut through Priyamudan in 1998. Right from the start you have an uneasy feeling about the film as it smells of amateurishness and looks more of a stage play on the big screen. The scenes end abruptly and you wait impatiently for the intermission that refuses to show up. This is definitely not good for a film whose runtime itself is just 2hrs 4 mins and 39 seconds to be precise. The relationship between Ganesh, Meera Jasmine and Simbhu is treated so clumsily. What on earth makes Meera Jasmine to take the decision that she takes in the film is something beyond rationale thinking. The incidents that Ganesh narrates are barely able to establish his traits. In one flashback that happens in Singapore he is shown as a sincere person and later in the film he goes to the extent of mortgaging his wife's jewels only to end bankrupt through gambling. Such ambiguity adds to our woes.

'Inga Enna Solludhu' tries to tell something. That something is revealed through a phrase from Santhanam in the climax. But a two hour film to drive home this message seems an exercise in futility.
