Noted cinematographer Vijay Milton's breakthrough moment as a director happened with 2014's Goli Soda, which was an unexpected blockbuster. The film was centered on a group of teens who overcame powerful adversaries on the path to prosperity. The second part is a sequel in spirit (young underdogs taking on mean baddies) featuring a different bunch of characters.
Plot – Maran (Bharath Seeni), Oli (Esakki Barath) and 'Auto' Siva (Vinoth) are three youngsters who live in North Madras; none of them know each other. Nadesan (Samuthirakani), a mentor to all three, is the only common link between them. The film is about the obstacles they face, how their paths cross and how they unite to take on what is standing in their way.
Final Word: Goli Soda 2 looked extremely promising at the halfway mark, but dipped slightly due to the exaggerated action scenes that followed. Vijay Milton, however, largely succeeds with his 'Goli Soda' recipe.
