Wonderful debut by Priyadarshan
10 December 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Priyadarshan, who was a hotshot director of Malayalam films and now, a big-time director all over India, makes his tamil film debut with this wonderful, entertaining film starring Karthik and Bhanupriya. The story is very simply told. Karthik is a schoolteacher who learns the concept of love thru letters, thanks to his friends. Saying anymore would spoil the movie's plot, so better left unsaid. Just watch this great movie if you get a chance.

Priyadarshan, as aforementioned, makes a brilliant debut and does a wonderful job with the direction as well as the scripting (screenplay was actually done by Malayalam actor Srinivasan). Karthik gives another fantastic performance to his credit (watch out for the scenes nearing the climax). In his time, Karthik got overshadowed by the likes of Kamal Hassan and Rajinikanth - who I have no problem saying that he (Rajini) is nowhere near Karthik's talent. Karthik never really got his due, despite working with some of the great directors in tamil cinema. (ex: Mani Ratnam, Fazil, Priyadarshan, Sridhar, Bharathiraja, etc.,) Bhanupriya gives an average performance - nothing really to rave about. The surprise of the pack is Nasser, who is tamil cinema's most underrated actor. He gives a brooding, almost a menacing performance. Some of the others - Janakaraj, Charlie, V.K. Ramasami, etc., are just about okay. P.C. Sriram shows why he is the one of India's best cinematographers. The opening scene, in the railway station, is one of the many brilliant shots that takes place in this movie. Ilayaraja provides another blockbuster soundtrack. All the songs are wonderful and beautifully picturised by P.C. Sriram. The pick of the lot is "Kaadhal Kavidhaigal..." for its wonderful flute work by Ilayaraja. Nice to see Mohanlal, Priyadarshan's favorite actor, in a guest appearance alongside Karthik. Simply put, an absolute gem of a film.
