Over the past few years, Simbu has been struggling to give a hit. However, during the lockdown, he decided to lose weight and undergo physical transformation. Post this, he signed Eeswaran with director Suseenthiran, which released in theatres on Pongal.
An astrologer predicts the death of Periyasaamy's (Bharathiraja) wife and it happens. Post her demise, Priyasaamy brings up his kids on his own and settles them in life. His only request to the kids is to visit him every year on their mother's death anniversary. During the lockdown, his four kids decided to spend a months time in the village.
Director Suseenthiran's Eeswaran promised to be a proper festival entertainer. Though the story has nothing to offer, Eeswaran turns out to be decent film that can make you sit through it. Simbu is the soul of the film and it is good to see him at his charming best.
Overall, Eeswaran is a one time watch and an engaging rural drama that caters to family audience this festive season.
