This movie proves to be an attempt to unearth the greatest actor in Surya. And let us see how the attempt carried.

The movie starts with Major Surya (Surya) listening to a bad news that his father expired when he is on a rescue operation. He closes his eyes and touches his memories with father. The story begins from his father Krishnan (Surya)'s young age, his romance with Malini (Simran) as told by her….how they got married and how they used to love him…and how he has gone mad looking at a girl Meghna (Sameera). He recalls all the fine moments where he took help and moral support from his Dad. And the entire saga goes as flash back which leaves a nostalgic experience for many viewers.

Surya has shown his great abilities in this film. He has almost touched the √©lan of Kamal Hasan in portraying varied roles with varied styles and body language. The way he walks as Krishnan, the way he walks as Major Surya and the way he walks as a lover…he seems to have mastered to every inch and every millimeter.

Sameera Reddy is just ok and in many frames she looked older than Surya. Divya is fresh and beautiful. Simran has aptly suited in middle age role and also managed well as teenager in flash back theme.

Others are ok. Prithvi has got tiny role as a criminal and couldn't able to give the necessary cruel impact.

Cinematography, editing, choreography and every technical aspect deserves good mention. Art department also marveled well especially while depicting the times of 60s and 70s.

Goutham Menon did another feat now with his great abilities. He proved to be a director of separate 'class'. And that is for 'class audiences' here.

It's a wonderfully made movie exclusively for class and matured audiences. It would be a stern 'no no' for masses. The length of the movie is about 3 hours and that squeezes out the energy levels of mere entertainment and humor lovers. 'Surya S/o Krishnana' is a movie made with feel. It's a movie of experiences and more over it is a story of father-son emotion. Surya acted in dual role as father and son to talk in macro level. But when seen in micro terms he has played many roles.

1. A dying old man
2. A loving father
3. A teenager
4. A student
5. A lover
6. A love-lost mourner
7. A drug addict
8. A savior
9. A military officer

That way he played 'Nava-avataram' in this flick. He had literally shown the differences that way. The hard work done by him is clearly evident and the credit goes to him and director Goutham Menon too. The perfectionist angles of the director are clearly evident in the movie. His ability of conceiving a scene and framing it with attention to time and detail are marvelous.

The movie appeals for multiplex audiences. It may give a 'feel-good' appeal at the end provided the audiences prepare to watch the movie for 3 long hours. It's artistically made film on a rich canvass. It's a Surya's movie all together. It has depicted his acting prowess. Commercially, the movie may not work out.
