"Vanna Jigina" from director Ravi Nanda Periyasamy is a thoughtful little film about discrimination based on one's complexion and also the perils lurking behind misuse of social networking.It is a film with too many close up shots of Colgate and Pepsodent smiles and a nagging 80's hangover so much so that ur jaws begin to ache even when u want to just smile or smirk.
Vijay Vasanth as the hero fits the bill and Sanea Tara as the girl he falls for with a fake i.d and chat on FB is refreshing.The music by John Peter is not gr8 but one particular melodious track which plays in the background and as a song proper in a dream sequence is one bright spot.Sridevi as Karugamani plays a crucial role here and is a natural.There is a villain who appears more sophisticated ans turns into a caricaturist performance.Another supporting actor playing the role of a fashion photographer here looks nice but doesnot get much scope.The camera work by Balaji
Vanna Jigina is an interesting premise which needed more solid execution and a lil more modernized treatment.At a run time of less than 2 hours, it is just passable effort
Director Ravi Nanda Periyasaami comes about social network, man falls in love with a woman through Facebook network.
How they connected through Facebook (through fake ID), What happens to their relationship? With lot of twist too is Screenplay.
Vijay Vasanth given OK performance. Nothing Spl in his acting.
Saniya Thara also given OK performance.
Other Character (At interval block) given not bad performance.
Kumki Aswin and Singam Puli Comedy track not that much. Just value added.
Villain who cheats girls thro facebook - Not much impressed in his role.
Other actors are apt in their roles.
Music Director by John Peter, Not bad music one.
Photography Balaji V Rangha was Good.
Drag in second half.
Many Logic scenes is missing
Verdict: Below Average movie
