Kumar, who returns home from abroad, travels to Ooty where he is in search of Jenny, his childhood love. The two were separated when Kumar's family decided to shift to Karnataka after the Cauvery agitation. Does he find her?
This film is said to be inspired from a real love story that happened in the tea estates of Ooty. The film is set mostly in the lush green landscapes of the tea estates in Nilgiris and travels through two time periods, Kumar as a gawky teenager experiencing his first love and the present day Kumar who wants to win his Jenny back.
This tale traverses through the tea estates in the Nilgiris, where workers from Karnataka and Kerala work there, along with local Tamils, as one happy family. When faced with the sudden agitation over the Cauvery river water, a family is forced to flee from to Karnataka. But, before this happens, young Kumar is has his first tryst with love as he meets buxom Malayali beauty Jenny. The rest of the film traces Kumar's attempts to find his 'one true love'.
The film has a feel good factor about it for most of the film, which keeps the viewer engaged for most time. Though, what fails the narrative is inconsistent cinematography, with rather too many tight close-ups that make no sense at all and a lacklustre music score. The film, touted to be a musical love story, doesn't have any standout tunes that linger on once you have left the hall.
The ensemble casting, too, could have been better, though the lead actors do justice to their roles. There are some cute moments of awkward emotions with the hero and heroine trying to communicate in Kannada and Malayalam that make you smile. The narrative, though, gets sluggish as the film progresses, making one shift in their seat hoping for the pace to pick up again. While films from this genre are usually slower in pace, the film lacks that special 'X' factor that keeps the mood of the pace lingering on. That said, the attempt is definitely laudable and the film is recommended for the romantics at heart.
