Poignant Love Tale
7 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can very well vouch that movie is one of such kind that will stay in one's heart forever... This is one such a simple/clean/decent love story that can happen in anyone's life... And that makes the movie stay close to one's heart... Gautham has splendidly done the screenplay... One can taste the sweetness/bitterness of love while ht movie flows...

The actors, Simbu and Trisha.... My god, they haven't acted, but lived as Karthik, Jessie... Such a brilliant performance...

The director concentrated more on the story, story and nothing but story... A simple, but a powerful one... Though there are very few locations, the camera man caught it well...

On the whole, it's a nice movie to be enjoyed...
