After a long gap, crazy star Ravichandran has made his comeback to the big screen with a big bang. His latest movie Hoo, which features bombshell Namitha and actress Meera Jasmine in the female leads, is a remake of Telugu movie Vasantham. Director Ravichandran has made a few changes from the original to suit the taste of the local audience.
Hoo is a romantic flick, which has an age-old story and dull narration. The highlights of the film are Ravichandran"s performance, Namitha"s glamour, comedy and Ismail and Raghu"s artwork. The music will usually be the first highlight of Ravichandran"s films, but V Harikrishna"s music in Hoo utterly disappoints his fans.
Ravichandran has been a true worshiper of love and friendship in almost all his previous movies and he has chosen the same as the subject of Hoo. It is all about a jobless youngster, who becomes a chess player with the insistence of his girlfriend, but he is trapped between friendship and love when he falls in love with another girl.
Anand (Ravichandran) is a chess Player and Jasmine (Meera Jasmine) is a music teacher. They are childhood friends. After the death of her father (Rangayana Raghu), a cake maker, Jasmine stays with Anand. She stands by him and insists him to continue as a chess player while his family forces him to quit chess as he does not have a steady earning. But he lands at a trouble when he falls in love with (Anju) Namitha. What happens next will form the interesting part of the film.
As usual, Ravichandran rocks the audience with his wonderful performance, but when compared to Venkatesh in Vasatham, he lacks spontaneity. Meera Jasmine is good in her role as Jasmine and she fills life to her role her expressive eyes and body language. Namitha has a less scope in the film when compared to Meera, but she is successful in entertaining prankster with her ample twin assets. Others are also good in their respective roles.
The film suffers from weak technical aspect. Ismail and Raghu"s artwork is the only plus point. V Harikrishna"s music and GSV Seetharam"s camera works are the biggest disappoints of the film. However, Hoo comes as a harbinger of spring season.
