Santhanam gets into trouble by helping his best friend Sethu to get married to his lover, who is the sister of a gangster, Sampath Raj. Fearing for his son's life, VTV Ganesh sends Santhanam to Banglore. There he meets Vaibhavi Shandilya and immediately falls in love with her and tries to woo her. After many tries and rejection he successfully wins her affection.
Santhanam gets to know that his lover's elder brother is the villain for his love and in real life, when the topic of marriage surfaces. Vaihbhavi then requests him to just elope with her as her brother will never accept their union. Santhanam disagrees to that and convinces Vaihbhavi to talk to her brother.
In this situation, Santhanam also gets to know that a gang of henchman are trying to kill Vaibhavi. The rest of the plot revolves around how he convinces Vaibhavi's brother to accept their love, and face the rowdies who are striving to kill his lover.
Santhanam is back with another supposedly fun filled commercial entertainer, and has also pulled off the character decently. He seems to have improved in his looks department, style and dance. Yet something is amiss in his performance, and his comedy sequences lacked his usual warmth. Vaibhavi Shandilya has very little to perform other than being the hero's love interest, and for arm candy purposes.
Vivek, VTV Ganesh, Power Star Srinivasan and Robo Shankar's comedy works in parts. Sometimes it even tests your patience as all those jokes are cliched and over used. Sampath Raj plays a pivotal role and it feels like the director has misused the actors' talent as the characterisation is weak. Still, he did deliver a good performance.
Debutant GL Sethuraman's vision might have been to deliver a complete laugh riot film packed with all the commercial elements. Though he has done a pretty decent job at the directorial department, he falters in scripting the screenplay, as many loose ends are evident and has nothing new to offer. Like mentioned above, half of the jokes seemed way too old and predictable. Despite of being touted as a comedy flick, SPPR lacks humour at various portions.
Popular actor Simbu, popularly referred as STR has now successfully ventured into the musical world. As a debutant music composer his background scores and songs are decent. Comparatively the former is much better than the latter. Abinandhan Ramanujam has cranked the camera, and has made sure to make the film visually grand.
In short, Sakka Podu Podu Raja, can be watched once.
