Both Aishwarya Arjun and Chandan Kumar are journalists and rivals as they work for leading opposite channels. Sathish is Chandan's assistant camera man, while Yogi Babu is Aishwarya's assistant. The four along with few others go on a mission to cover the Kargil War. Soon things get out of hand, and Aishwarya and Chandan are the sole journalists at the war place.
They then decide to pacify their rocky relationship and help the other one out in covering the war. In this situation, they both began to develop feelings for each other. However, they refain from expressing their love as Aishwarya is already engaged to her guardian, Suhasini Mani Ratnam's son. The rest of the plot revolves around how they escape the war place and succeed in their love.
Although Aishwarya Arjun is back to screen after almost four years, she looks fresh as ever. She travels throughout the film and has delivered a neat performance. Kannada actor Chandan Kumar makes his Kollywood debut through Sollividava, he looks fit and has pulled of his role really well. However, the lead pairs on screen chemistry could have been more alive. Yogi Babu like always has done a good job. Rajendran, Sathish Krishnan and Suhasini Maniratnam all have done justice to their roles.
Arjun Sarja is back to Kollywood as a filmmaker. This time he has decided to direct Aishwarya, and to mark this film as a re-entry for her. Like all his previous movies Arjun has once again made a film which revolves around patriotism and love. He has done a pretty decent job in the directorial department even though many loose ends are evident.
Though the film has all the commercial elements such as love, friendship and sentiment he falls short on the screenplay front, and has faltered by placing several unnecessarily draggy scenes. Which is sure to test the patience of the audience.
HC Venugopal's cinematography skills come to the fore, and he has shot well. Jassie Gift has handled the music department and though his scores justify the movie's genre, it fails to reach out the viewers.
In short, Sollividava, could have been much better.
