Director Radha Mohan has consistently delivered breezy family entertainers that also serve as eye-openers. His latest, 60 Vayadu Maaniram, is a remake of the acclaimed Kannada film Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu.
Plot: Govindarajan (Prakash Raj) is a 60-year-old suffering from Alzheimer's. His busy and generally impatient son Siva (Vikram Prabhu) admits him to an old-age home that is specifically devoted to such patients. When Govindarajan goes missing, Siva experiences a reality check. As he tries to find his dad over the course of the film, he recollects fond memories of his father and realizes what his life lacks. A fondness grows between him and Dr. Archana (Indhuja), who aids him in his search.
Final word: 60 Vayadu Maaniram is a standard Radha Mohan film, which doesn't bow down to the current new-age cinema trends and techniques. Thanks to the relatable father-son angle and the performances of Prakash Raj and Vikram Prabhu, 60VM is a worthy exercise and a neatly executed remake.
