Like Raashi, Aishwarya Rajesh comes off looking genuine in an otherwise preposterously contrived film. As Suvarna, she registers coyness, hurt and anger wonderfully well. However, Suvarna is stuck in the mould of an '80s heroine who will put up with any amount of gaslighting and nonsense from her husband (she doesn't even reveal that she's more educated than he is...because who wants a wife who's superior to her man?). I wished for Gautham's sake that he'd had one sensible friend who'd read his work and tell him - sorry, bro, this story is approximately 2000 years old and deserves to be in a museum with the fossils, but then, the only friend he has is poor Priyadarshi. The comedian plays the usual friend role but even he seems to be having trouble buying the ridiculous storyline.
