Chennai: Telugu movies provide a different watch for Tamil audience. There is overdose of action and stunt scenes that defies laws of gravity. Allu Arjun's En Peru Surya En Veedu India, the Tamil version of his Telugu release Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, has action, emotion and romance at right mix.

Directed by V Vamsi, the movie has a lot to convince Tamil audience.

Set in an army background, the film is driven by the character of Allu (Surya), who is short-tempered. Anger managament forms the crux of the movie.

Fit of rage forces him to out of the army and he is given the challenge to rejoin the fleet. Vamsi, who portrays human emotions well on screen, had done a commendable job as writer. Allu's characterisation and his travel towards his mission make it an enjoyable watch.

Though there are shades of Ratchagan and Unakum Enakkum, the way in which Vamsi presents the movie makes it engaging. There is love, anger and patriotism in several scenes. At many places, the filmmaker missed out on getting what he had on paper on screen. And Sarathkumar's role is a weak link.

Music by Vishal and Shekar is foot-tapping while Rajeev Ravi and Sushil Choudhary's camera captures the agony of an army man well. The songs are misplaced proving to be a brake to the story.

Vamsi's attempt to portray Allu Arjun as macho man works out well. Anu Emmanuel plays his ladylove. At many places, the feeling of watching a dubbed movie could have been avoided. On the whole, Vamsi has done a decent job thanks to strong screen presence of Allu Arjun.
