Something Something Unakkum Enakkum
Reviewer's Summary - Below Average

Language: Tamil
Year: 2006
Actors: Trisha, Ravi, Prabhu, Bhagyaraj, Richa Pallod, Tejashree

Screenplay: M.Raja

Watching the clumsily inept Something Something Unakkum Enakkum amounts to suffering slow torture.

An absolutely unoriginal love story, Something Something Unakkum Enakkum is devoid of any semblance of artistic merit or entertainment value.

The story is just plain silly. Older viewers of Something Something Unakkum Enakkum can see shades of two Hindi films Pyar Kiya Tho Darna Kya (1998) and Maine Pyar Kiya (1989). Both the Hindi films were well made and went on to become big hits.

Agreed, given Indian directors' strange obsession with love stories, there's not much leeway to maneuver. After all in how many different ways can you flog a dead horse?

But Something Something Unakkum Enakkum's principal folly is to take the love angle and then give it a mighty tacky treatment.

If you are planning yet another love story, you ought to ensure at least one of the following (ideally all of them) - set love in a nice context, provide melodious music or introduce fresh faces with talent.

But Something Something Unakkum Enakkum fails to do any of the above.

Poor Performances
After five movies, the hero of Something Something Unakkum Enakkum - Ravi - is still an unpolished actor.

He is also far behind his peers like Surya, Vishal, Karan or Bharat in the acting department.

As for Trisha, the heroine of Something Something Unakkum Enakkum, besides her endearing pout there's not much else on display here.

Rich NRI Santosh (Ravi) comes to India from London to attend the marriage of his cousin Lalitha (Richa Pallod).

No sooner does he land in India than he runs into Lalitha's friend Kavitha (Trisha). After the usual I-can't-stand-you, the two quickly fall for each other.

But what the two see in each other is hard to fathom for the viewer.

Santosh's mother is unhappy about her son's involvement with Kavitha, the sister of a small farmer.

Things go horribly bad for the young pair when Kavitha's brother Muthupandi (Prabhu) arrives at the marriage and is badly insulted by Santosh's mother. Kavitha and Muthupandi are asked to get out.

After his cousin's marriage, Santosh and his mother leave for London. But Santosh misses Kavitha badly and he returns to the village only to be beaten up and insulted by Kavitha's brother.

Muthupandi now sets a seemingly impossible challenge for Santosh if he wants to marry Kavitha.

Can Santosh win the challenge, and thus win Kavitha's hand?

The only tolerable aspect of Something Something Unakkum Enakkum is Prabhu's solid performance. As Trisha's doting brother Muthupandi, Prabhu's performance easily eclipses that of Jayam Ravi and Trisha.

None of the songs in Something Something Unakkum Enakkum did anything for us.

As early as the 1940s, Hollywood directors made such classic love stories like Casablanca, Notorious and For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Sixty years later, the Kollywood buffoons are still making jackass movies like Something Something Unakkum Enakkum.

N.B: Something Something Unakkum Enakkum is the Tamil version of the Telugu film Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, which featured Trisha as the heroine.- © SearchIndia.com.
