Extraordinary performed movie
15 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Very very expectant movie. enthusiastic. marvelous love story. songs are very superb & awesome. asking to hear more and more. lyrics also breaking point. after a long time good love story among mega superstars. stunning performance. i have refer nearly more than 50 persons to view the movie. even me too take it 10 times. also need more to taste.

Indian titanic especially south Indian. after "uyire" movie this film made sensation. don't miss .

i don't have any other words to say...

Madharasapattinam-True that the love and emotions we hold for someone when in the presence of him/her is an extra ordinary sense that GOD has created in us.But something which is more divine is the feeling which we have towards them in the same magnitude or even greater when our mind and heart knows the fact that they are away or even out of our lives.A Sweet romantic story well told and well captured in the backdrop of Indian independence.Amy Jackson is cute lovely and beautiful and has shown good acting talents.Einstein's theory proved yet again by by making you feel the otherwise lengthy first half not so lengthy at all (Let his soul rest in peace). has done a decent job.the movie is well supported by almost all the one in the acting crew.the end was great and emotional.the movie would have been awesome if director had taken bit more care on the graphical end and with the replacement of the horrible background score...and also the the portrayal of Chennai in 1940s was a disappointment....anyways Madharasapattinam is worth a watch
