‘LGM’ film assessment: Like a MS Dhoni innings with none sixes or boundaries

Harish Kalyan and Ivana in ‘LGM’

LGM grew to become a subject of debate in Tamil movie circles as a result of it was being produced by cricketer MS Dhoni, who has develop into Tamil Nadu’s adopted son because of his exploits for the Chennai Tremendous Kings.

LGM, nonetheless, has nothing to do with cricket. It’s a romantic comedy. And the makers might need simply missed a advertising trick by titling it LGM, after they may have truly named it MSD. Which expands to not Mahendra Singh Dhoni, however Meet, Sing, Dance.

As a result of, this 153-minute story involving Gautham (Harish Kalyan), Meera (Ivana) and Leela (Nadhiya) is basically that. Gautham falls in love with Meera, and they’re in love for 2 years; a narrative that’s hammered into us in each subsequent scene that we want that they had by no means met within the first place.

And thus begins a experience that’s neither partaking nor humorous, and is the equal of a Dhoni innings on the crease with none boundaries or sixes. There’s a superficiality in virtually all sequences. The dialogues will not be delivered naturally, it feels very rehearsed. The characters speak like they’re ready for the opposite individual to ship, after which reply, quite than chat spontaneously.

Nadhiya and Ivana maintain saying rendu as randu, one thing that actually put me off, however their chemistry does work in elements. The imagery of a mother-in-law partying together with her potential daughter-in-law is a good suggestion on paper, however LGM may have executed these scenes higher. For what is basically a love story, there’s little chemistry between Harish Kalyan (a staid efficiency) and Ivana. The comedy and music tries to salvage issues — Mirchi Vijay and Yogi Babu pull off some gags — however the bland nature of the sequences continues to tire you until the tip.

LGM may have labored provided that the journey was attention-grabbing and the characters that journey have memorable exchanges. However sadly, that doesn’t occur, and audiences are left probing for some semblance of a storyline and efficiency, very similar to the lead character and his pal who maintain looking for the lacking characters within the movie.

Ramesh Thamilmani, who has been credited for course, music composition and VFX, has tried to weave in a family-friendly romantic story, however has, in that pursuit, give you a weak topic. The characters get to go to Goa and Coorg, however the movie actually goes nowhere.

Simply watching a clip of ‘Thala’ Dhoni’s stride into Chepauk, with DJ Zen’s thumping music within the background, might need been extra memorable.
