This is my first review on IMDb.so you people can see that why I am writing this.I didn't have any much expectation from this movie. I didn't have any work so start this. After watching the movie I can say that it is one of the best romantic movie I have ever seen.

I liked Gautham menon's others movies also but became fan of him after this movie.superb direction and screenplay.awesome dialogues and acting.Love the Dialogue "Of all of the girls in the world why I fall in love with Jessie" . I am also a engineering student and same kind of dream which the lead hero has. So story is close to my heart.

One particular thing that I like about the movie is its climax.Again hats off to Gautham Menon.
