Storyline

Parthiban (Srikant) is a young executive who has trouble keeping a job because of his adventurous nature. A young girl he sees at a bus-stop (Sneha) catches his fancy, and he quickly falls head over heels in love with her, when he finds remarkable similarities in their two personalities. Parthiban is then cajoled into "checking out" a girl for an arranged marriage, which he does reluctantly, only to find she turns out to be Sathya (Sneha), the girl he secretly admires. Elated, he agrees to a marriage. A bizarre twist follows immediately after. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Good for viewing with a loved one!
18 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It has been a very long time since something decent and palatable has come out of the Tamil film industry. Though many may call this syrupy, it has to be said that the movie is clean, the humor good, songs excellent. The story centers on the life of Parthiban (Srikanth) and his vision of a dream girl- Sneha. The plot moves along at a brisk pace without stagnation . The climax has been handled very maturely and is in striking contrast with some of the contemporary movies. Sneha and Srikanth have given good performances, and the all the supporting cast are up to the mark. Vivek's comedy reminds one of Thangavelu from Kalyaana Parisu, but is still quite enjoyable.... makes one wonder why he cant do more such decent comedy! All in all it is worth watching once, especially in the company of person whom you may be trying to impress!
