Story :






Muthu (Karthik) is a caretaker at a retirement home known as Rojavanam. He is the favourite of all the elderly residents and the owner of 'Rojavanam'. Muthu then begins to have a crush on the owner of Rojavanam's daughter Roja (Laila), and the residents of the home decide to help him out as he is quite shy to admit his feelings. What follows are the antics of the residents to ensure that Muthu is married... A warm film that is fully dedicated to the elderly people, who are normally forgotten or stereotyped on Indian cinema. So its a breathe of fresh air that the film manages to focus on the elderly in both a humorous and pleasant way. Of course some of the clichés remain here of how the youth treat the elderly, but the way these plots interweaves with the main narrative is unique and is one reason why the film is watchable. Thespian actors 'Kaka' Radhakrishnan, M.S.Viswanathan, Jaiganesh and Nambiar are wonderfully portrayed in the film as the loveable elderly folks. It is particularly fun seeing them trying to fix the character of Muthu up with a girl, and them beating up a gang of rowdies. The overall production value is indeed quite good, with some picturesque cinematography. The background music score is very orchestrated and is memorable in the mind even after the film ends.
