Kaadhal - A real tribute to lovers
13 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent !! Excellent !! Excellent !!

I was dumbstruck when i saw the movie for the first time. This kinda movies just happens. Right from the scene 1 , it locks u in your seat. Some of the points which are worth to be mentioned . 1. Great camera work. The camera just captures the reality n only reality. The suburban part of Tamilnadu is flashed in the screen perfectly without any make up or settings. 2. Music. Applauds to Joshua Sridhar. He has done a neat job. The music supports the extraordinary performance of the cast. 3. Sandhya n Bharath . I broke into tears in the climax. The climax would surely scratch the tears out of toughest heart. Ultimately u will feel for the characters. Commendable job by Sandhya. She just makes ur heart heavy n i bet her weep in the climax will haunt u for days. Bharath etches out for another classical performance. The producer Shankar would have never expected that "Kaadhal" will creates this much gravity among lovers. If you have loved , loving then Kaadhal is more than a movie to you.

This movie had an enormous effect on me that i kept thinking abt the real lovers who were responsible for this movie (director says that it is a real life incident).

Kaadhal will remain forever as one of the best movies in Tamil filmdom.
