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.
A lot of people thought this movie was highly exaggerated, but I think it was a pretty accurate reflection of what idealistic young men go through in India. Kamal is in his element, as is Sridevi. In fact, everyone does a good job. Plenty of melodrama and cliches, but the movie ends on the right note. Thengai Sreenivasan appears for a few incredibly funny minutes, proving that there are no small roles -- only small actors. MSV and Kannadasan, not to mention Bharathiyar, make for an everlasting classic soundtrack. Worth a watch.
