Millennium hit , the most successful film in tamil in its year of release
30 May 2014 | by (malaysia) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying I'm really surprised that there are not many on on IMDb has yet reviewed this cult favourite and famous movie . Minnale was one of the most successful films in tamil in its year of release

The story was not something new in western cinema but definitely new to Indian cinema.Loving a engaged girl was addressed in the film even before in Titanic.The director had included the element of impersonation.The crew did their work in a perfect manner.The visuals and the BGM were of top quality.

A DAY IN 2001...

There was a lot of hype surrounding the release of Minnale. The music had indeed struck lightning with everyone.And when the film was finally released for the valentine Day, The group of us decided to hit the theatres.

The story of Minnale is an exercise in creativity when compared to most mainstream Indian movies.

The director of this movie is the now successful director Gautham, for whom this was a debut movie. The music director is Harris Jeyaraj, who too made his debut. He used to be(I believe he still is) AR Rahman's assistant.

But Harris caught me with surprise.One after another, every song in the album was attractive.The freshness and richness in the music reminded me of A.R.Rahman, in his early stages.Harris had a wonderful mix of music, but to call it a trend setter is an overstatement according to me. Nevertheless I was struck with the music, that my cerebrum automatically started collecting information regarding the film.

People said that HJ had copied some of ARR's tunes, but whether or not that's true, a man has to be credited for giving excellent music, and Harris Jeyaraj deserves every bit of praise for that.Harris delivered a fresh new sound which appealed to the masses and classes alike.''vaseegara'' went on to become one of the so called millennium hits.

Watchable once and maybe a cult favorite for the truly sentimental
