Divya, a woman grieving over the death of her lover, is convinced into an arranged marriage with Chandra Kumar. Over a year the couple attempt to adjust to each other's presence and live with each other.
This is vintage Balachander. Contrived and manipulating, yet tugging at your heart. All performances are top-notch, as is usual in his movies. This is actually two movies put together. Their connection is contrived and hence the climax is a let-down. But individually, they are wonderful pieces. Violin virtuoso-brothers Ganesh and Kumaresh have been used brilliantly and have delivered excellent performances for their debut. Be forewarned! You'll feel depressed after watching the movie. But it is worth it!
