This film was intelligent and thoughtful, tender and achingly sad with simply gorgeous songs and the stunning ushachechi proving she is so very much more than just a divinely beautiful face. I will give it 9.5/10 only because I was secretly hoping that the ending would be a little different, in an equally non-formulaic way. The exploration of its themes and the strength of her character are both remarkable for the era. The beginning of the film is quite simply astonishing - to literally open with a song of the calibre of vasantha ranikku vanamala korkkan - what a foretaste of the movie's overall quality. The phrase is worn out and hackneyed now, but if any film is a 'must see' kallippennu is that film.
