Ilaingar Paasarai is about a high school triangular love story where there is a hero, heroine and villain. There are the strict parents, non-sync teachers and an inevitable 'Thaai Maama' who will marry his under-aged niece when the family finds out that she is in a relationship.
There is eloping, dialogues attempting to inspire us to love and other absurd ingredients. You develop these hints and you can never be far from the plot of Ilaingar Paasarai.
Ashwin as the hero is an inappropriate choice for the role of a higher secondary student. He does not look like one and cannot act like one. Anu Krishna's acting is below average and Udayraj as the villain is childish at best.
We have innumerable movies in Tamil explaining the fragility of adolescents, the torture of infatuation and desire of young hearts. Director Rithan has made no effort to differentiate his movie from the others and therefore fails to make a mark. Jeyasudhakar's music is average and so is Ganesarasa's cinematography.
