One of the most sensitive movies ever made ...
12 September 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Moondram Pirai is a poetic beauty. It has everything going for it - a touching story, excellent screenplay, top-notch acting (particularly from Kamal and Sridevi), great music, gorgeous photography and simply superb direction. It is one of the all-time classic Tamil movies ever made. Must see! 10 out of 10!
