Modhi Vilayadu doesnâ€™t have a rare script, but has a gripping screenplay with more engrossing ingredients. Well, Director Saran who was drenched in desolate scenarios of continuous flops, Idhaya Thirudan and Vattaram, rebounds with a resplendent flick. Of course, the storyline seems to be partially similar to Prashanthâ€™s Star, but an unparalleled narration makes the difference. Hats off to Vinay! The guy makes the bold attempt of dubbing for himself.
Udhay (Vinay) and Madhan (Yuva) are best friends, living life, enjoying the riches of Udhayaâ€™s father Rajan Vasudev (Kalabavan Mani), who is one of the top 50 rich men in the world. Madhan lived with Udhay and Udhayaâ€™s father took care of all of Madhanâ€™s expenses.
Both the friends meet L R Eshwari (Kajal Agarwal), a pretty college student and both of them fall in love with her. Udhayaâ€™s father surprisingly supports of Madhanâ€™s love with L R Eeswari, when strange things begins to happen- Madhan gets killed, Udhay losses all his wealth and Udhay is on the run to save his life.
How does Udhaya find out the hidden secrets in his life?
And does he sort things out?
As in most of Saranâ€™s films, the first half gets around with excellent moments with lighter ambience. In direct contrast, the latter part paces with unexpected twists and turns with sharpness. Vinay with his cute looks, delivers an enchanting performance, emoting to every situation. His dialogues with Kalabavan Mani during penultimate sequences are impressive. Kajol Agarwal seems to have improved a lot from her previous films Bommalaatam and Pazhani.
