fresh look at a tired tale...
19 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Madhavan and Jyothika play a couple of young people at odds with their parents' decision to marry them off. Jyothika's character has ambitions of going for a college education and Madhavan's likes his free life in the city too much to get tied down. Madhavan has good flair for comedic as well as serious acting and he is well utilized: Especially the scene where he and Jyothika meet at the bridge over the railway where he expresses his concern with minimum dialog. Jyothika's talent is also well exploited as she plays the serious young girl; and it complements successfully Madhavan's portrayal of the lighthearted young man. I gave it a 9 because there are weaknesses and exaggerations in the ruses the couple use to put the inevitable off. But overall a well done and a very watchable movie!!
