Filmmaker Selvah’s remake of Naan Avan Illai proved to be a black horse at box office and after now he’s proving of his adeptness again with its sequel. Nearly couple of years, The Master of Deception is back in business with his tritely conniving styles. Jeevan plays the same role of a conman transfixing the filthy rich girls (Lakshmi Rai, Hema Malini, Swetha Menon and Rakshana), whose dreams are barely about money, diamonds and an obedient servant-like-husbands.
Although, the entire film has the hackneyed narration of Jeeva repeating the same fraudulent acts again and again, Selvah makes sure that audiences don’t feel bored about it. Much similar to the prequel, we’ve Jeevan reasserting– Naan Avanillai (I am not that person) and naturally, it adds to the interesting quotients in this film.
Sangeetha gears on for an exceptional role sans glamour while rest of the actresses seem to have crossed their limits of glam-quotients. Especially Hema Malini turns to be topped on these charts as she does nothing other than skin shows. On the pars, Rakshana and Swetha Menon strive to get their skins exposed to extreme…. But it’s really puzzling on who’s actually designing costumes for Lakshmi Rai.
Technically, the film hasn’t got anything special to mention about. It looks like music director Imman had just scored the music without any interests. Or maybe, Selvah requested him not to strain too much for best tunes.
Though Jeevan’s scheming acts are quite enjoyable, they lack logicalities. The best part to be appreciated is Selvah’s sleek screenplay and his ability to present an entertaining film with a short duration of just 105mins.
Finally, if you’ve planned to watch this Naan Avanillai-2, just go ahead, sit back and relax. But please drop your reasoning factors aside and don’t question certain illogical attributes prevalent in the screenplay.
