A good movie; possibly the only good one that Kathir has made in a good time now.
Depicts the life of a young farmer who has lived life to his fullest and made others live it too. He faces the facts; he is fat and obnoxiously so. They know him as the fat one; that many a pink girl in half saris laugh at and wouldn't even dream of having to live with as a wife. His mother; an old and dying woman wishes for but to see her son happily wedded before she breathes her last. Finally, things seem to be falling into place, with a beautiful country girl that agrees to marriage but later, tells him of her love for another man. Heartbroken, he agrees to wreck the marriage, post which his mother hates him and dies in pain. He is ridiculed as the one that killed his own mother with his foolish acts. They cuss him and tell him that he would burn on a pyre of wet twigs. He cries to a local school teacher, who takes pity on him. She tells him of how one ought to look at the heart and not what forms outside it. Flesh. Blood. It's all but physical entities. But it's the heart that beats truly. She wipes his tears and teaches him life. Awesome rendition of songs by SPB, Shahul Hameed and Chitra. The music lives on in the thoughts of people who know that it isn't true that A.R.Rahman only made Roja before he Dil Se.
Vairamuthu outshines in his wonderful lyrics. "Kangalil Enna Eeramo?(Why're there tears in your eyes?) Nenjinil Enna Baaramo?(Why's thy heart down with a burden?) Kaigalil Adhai Vaangava,(Shall I take it in the palm of my hands,) Oru Thaayai Pola Unai Thaangava?"(Shall I carry you like a mother?) -- "Pennalla Pennalla Oodha Poo(She's no girl! She's the violet!) Sivandha Kannangal Rosa Poo(Her pink cheeks, the roses!) Kannalla Kannalla Alli Poo(They're not eyes! They're lilies!) Sirippu Malligai Poo"(Her smile, jasmines in bloom!) -- Good movie!
