(nl) wrote: 3 Film Review 2012Rating: 2.8/5 | Satisfactory3 is the story centers around the lives of a teenage boy and girl who fall deeply in love and determined to be together. A Romantic Drama film directed by Aishwarya R Dhanush who made her debut as director with the film 3 in Tamil. It was released in two languages in both Tamil and Telugu.The film starts with the death ceremony of the protagonist and uses flashback chronology to depict some of the major events of the past life till his death. Ram (Dhanush) a school student who falls in love with Janani (Shruti) during their 12th standard. Both fall deeply in love and years later on they get married. This is what the first half of the movie talks about - a typical teenage love story with breezy romance and fun. After this, suddenly the major conflict and contrast arises in the screenplay and spoils the audience expectations by pulling or dragging the story harder towards the end. The second half of the movie reveals that the other side of the protagonist Ram's life which is coined with series of suffering and tragedy of his life that led to his death. He is having a psychological disorder called Bipolar disorder which makes him behave abnormally. The rest of the movie reveals that the relationship between Ram and Janani and the fear regarding the struggle between love and disorder.As usual, Danush's performance is the only thing in the film which is excellent and he had done a great job as Ram, in which his life is depicted the struggle between love relationships and psychological disorder. Shruti Haasan has done a decent job as an innocent school student as well as a lovely wife, even though it is not great to mention about it. She should also improve her acting skills and dialogue delivery even better than this. There is something to mention about Shruti Haasan here; as a Janani she makes people squeeze a tear with every shot. The other notable cast such as Prabhu, Bhanupriya, Rohini, Sivakarthikeyan and Sunder Ramu were doing a good job but they are not utilized properly in the script. Anirudh's music was absolutely good, but the songs picturization is not effective and quiet poor, especially 'Kolaveri di' is a major disappointment, picturization is not effective at all. Resul Pookutty has done a great job as a sound engineer and its support the narrative totally.This film is directed by Ranjinikanth's daughter and Dhanush's wife Aishwarya and her direction skills are quite poor. The second half of the movie is totally contrasted to the first half by having hints of a suspense and surprise in the plot which is handled pathetic in the screenplay and she tried hard to fulfill audience expectations but failed to achieve any and also fails at the box office. The unwanted shots, inappropriate comedies and slow narrative cloud have been avoided and stop dragging the shots. It shows the lack of experience. I think it's somehow true that this film is supposed to be a short film which is dragged into a feature film. In general, directors should concentrate more on medical and scientific subjects when their film is dealing with certain issues. Here in this film, it is not properly scripted that how Ram getting Bipolar disorder suddenly after their marriage!, and also the treatment of the disorder is not properly established in the script. Please concentrate more on sensitive subjects like this. I will appreciate her directorial debut by taking a serious subject in her very first film and hope that Aishwarya will concentrate more on her second film.This film talks about the issues based on Manic depression; Bipolar affective disorder it is widely better known as Bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a condition in which people go back and forth between periods of a very good or irritable mood and depression. The "mood swings" between mania and depression can be very quick.Result: 3 is a romantic drama film with romance, relationship, love, loss, desire, emotional and psychological conflicts, tragedy, fun, entertainment and it's worth watching at once. 3: There is not a single genuine moment; it is all sentimental waste.Related Movies: Sweat November 2004, City of Angels 1998, A Walk to Remember 2002, etc.,.

There is no uplifting end or happy message but it is powerful and a well acted film. Each story is intense and dark in its own way and it builds up to climax right at the end. This movie was well worth it.
