It is interesting to learn that the title of the film comes from the first two letters of hero and heroine’s names — Soorya and Rishaba. That is one of the novel elements in this well made movie. It has an offbeat theme and fortunately, the director does not go overboard even on violent scenes.
Soorya (Vignesh), a marketing executive from a close knit middle class family falls for Rishabha (Uma) for her simple looks and social consciousness. He even agrees to her terms and conditions that they stay away from each other for a year and meet again. She believes that if their’s were indeed a true love it would stand the test of time.
A year later, Soorya returns only to hear Rishabha is already married. Unable to bear the betrayal, a furious Soorya vows to take revenge and sets out to trace her. Finally he finds out that she is married to Parthibhan, a local dada. Soori tries to kill Rishabha and but her husband is the main stumbling block.
Vignesh has made a comeback through this film. Vignesh, who is with a cleanshaven head throughout the film has given a good performance. Parthibhan has only a brief role. Uma looks pretty and plays her role with understanding. Shelvan, a one time associate of Shankar, has handled the film well and the climax is bold, unusual and appreciable. The visuals in the song sequences are brilliant and Deva’s musical score is fresh.
