Good, but too sober
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is amazing example of great direction, acting and a definition of how a background score should be. Songs are out of the world. Kamal and Sridevi screen chemistry beats it all.

Sridevi plays a teenage girl who is affected by loss of memory and she falls a prey to some evil elements of the society and lands up as a tart. Kamal sees here there and decides to help her.

From there starts this poetic beauty. K.J Yesudas is God!!!!!! he gave probably his best voice ever (exempt Sindhu Bhairavi) in Moondram Pirai. People who want to see love and its emanation, please watch this. this is not a movie where people meet a couple of times and say "i love u".

i am not a big fan of romantic movies, but this one is too good (for one this is not a romantic movie, its a different class and genre)
