Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is a huge asset to the film and it’s one of the reasons why this movie is worth a watch. Anthony’s editing is slick although some of the locales do repeat every now and then. Madhi’s cinematography is commendable especially considering the fact that it’s a road film. The action sequences and car chases deserve a big thumbs up. Linguswamy, who has films like Run, Pandem Kodi to his credit, makes sure that Aawara is a racy entertainer. While he successfully pulls the right strings to make it a sweet love story with oodles of drama, perhaps it’s a little too contrived. The film falls short of being an absolute joy ride.
The film is not inspired from ‘Jab We Met’ although both the films are about how the couples get closer when they are on the road. It’s not a bad film by any standard, perhaps a good enough film for this summer. Watch it for Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music, slick action choreography and the lead pair. And you get Madhi’s cinematography as the icing on the cake. The film is high on speed and it would have been a lot better if there was more NOS in that script!
