'Snehithudu' is directed by Shankar. And he has come up with a remake storyline and while the presentation was good, the narrative was refreshing.
A remake tale, the story begins with two friends Venkat (sriram) and Nikhil (jiiva) who set off on the search for their missing friend Pani (vijay). A flashback takes them back to their college days when Pani joins Venkat and Nikhil and in no time all become thick friends. While the college head Virupaksha Sundaram (sathyaraj) alias Virus believes strongly in making students as bookworms, Pani believes in pursuing his own passion and understand the essence. Meanwhile, he also manages to charm Riya (ileana), daughter of Virus. Whether Venkat and Nikhil are successful in locating Pani or not forms the rest of the story.
Vijay has come up with an unassuming performance and steals the show. Ileana was sexy and gives the required glamour dose. Srikanth fits the bill and does his bit while Jiiva was another competent performer. Sathyaraj displays shades of Boman Irani in a big way. Sathyan was there for the laughs. S J Suryah, Anuya Bhagavath made their presence felt.
'Snehithudu' music is composed by Harris Jayaraj.And the background score was good and three songs were there for listening.
