Director L Suresh has made Neeya 2 not as a straight sequel to Neeya, the popular 1979 super hit film starring Kamal Haasan and Sripriya in lead roles, but as a movie inspired by it.
Malar (Raai Laxmi) is a shape-shifting serpent who is a woman by the day and a snake by the night. She was married to Vikram alias Sarva (Jai) in the previous birth.
In the present birth, Sarva is stalked by Divya (Catherine Tresa), who urges him to marry her. She has Naga dosham too. Sarva, who initially keeps ignoring Divya, marries her finally.
This irks Malar, who vows to take revenge on the couple. Does she achieve her mission and is she able to join hands with Sarva in the current birth form the rest of Neeya 2.
Jai has tried to give his best of emotions, while Raai Laxmi has shined well in her role. Catherine Tresa delivers goods, while Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has been wasted.
Neither the script nor the characters strike a chord with the audience. The good thing however is we are able to revisit the past through this flick.
