Simple yet touching story
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It would take a really tough person to watch this movie in entirety and not be moved to tears. Its a simple story of a grandfather, how the arrival of his grandson and friends, turns a sleepy house into a fun filled one. The title of the movie means "on the third (day)". This is another one of the genius Padmarajan's work. Unfortunate incidents happen and how traumatic it can be for an elderly person forms the main the theme. The directors excellence lies in the fact that he took a story that can be told in a single line and made a tear jerker out of it, and boy what a job he did! Thilakan as the grandfather is thoroughly believable and you cannot help feel sympathy for the person. The songs of this movie are also enjoyable
