Spoilers ahead…

The tone is all over the place, and because the love angle is hardly developed, we don’t care about this couple getting together. 

Casting Venkat Prabhu in Adiyae makes a great deal of sense. The director made the superb Maanadu, which is one of the rare Tamil films that successfully explored a sci-fi premise. (1): The film was true to the genre, with no random love story and so forth. And (2): There was no hesitation, there was no “will our local audiences understand this!” confusion. Seeing Venkat Prabhu in Vignesh Karthick’s movie makes you wish the senior director had been given the opportunity to doctor the script, which is a mess. The premise is that a young man (GV Prakash Kumar) keeps finding himself in alternate realities. The premise is also about “will he get the girl he loves” (played by Gouri G Kishen).
