A great Movie
18 December 2004 | by (Hamburg) – See all my reviews

The hero who is allergic to girls during the first few scenes.On a rainy night he sees a girl dancing in the rain and he sees her face when lightning strikes(minnal in tamil and hence the name).

He falls in love with her but he finds out that she is engaged to someone else and he pretends as her fiancée and makes her fall in love with him.

She finds out eventually and now has to choose between the two.

My favorite tamil movie and all the songs are great.

The song vaseegara is excellent with the vocals.

I would recommend this movie for people in their teens.
