What a big expectation for this movie.......I think the BIGGEST for a romantic flick. 15 minutes in to the movie I thought this is the landmark one not only for the crew but also for the Tamil film industry. ohhh...is there any magic Gautham is spelling on his actresses? I promise by heart, I have never seen Trisha more beautiful than this.
Let us get in to the first half...
I can boldly say this is the best chemistry between the lead pair in the decade (not to forget alaipayudhe).What beautiful dialogues......same like Mani Ratnam......
And now I know why he chose Rahman for the music. It indeed forms the backbone of the movie. what a classical BG score.....
Gautham is getting bigger with his movies.The main plus for his movies is that the critics have never been able to find out a point to make him down.
And what a screenplay by this guy (though nobody is surprised here because even his Pachaikili Muthucharam which was less than impressive @ the BO,had a great screenplay)
The second part of the movie now
I don't think any different theme about love can be explored at this time as everything has already been made. So Gautham plays with the age old theme of boy meets girl of different religion and
falls in love and the girl fearing about their parents' acceptance. But of course he has put his midas touch at it. And it his hard at this stage of Tamil cinema to give out an out andout romantic flick and that too with the lead pair occupying around 90% of the screen space.
The only flip for this movie is the slow pace at this part of the movie. The dialogues between the lead pair do tell me that he is the next one to take the mantle of Mani sir..... And all of us know that it is not only in romance he is good at but can do action flicks too like KK & VV.....Just the same way as Mani does.... But not a coincidence they both are at their best at romance....
And finally the climax
Any directors ability is fully answered only by the way he does his climax....and Gautham will get my maximum points for this climax...he does raise everybodys eyebrows after the climax...........Particularly this climax will stay in our minds for a long time to come..... this too comes the same way as Mani Ratnams
