Kaavalan Blockbuster
1 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you believe in the pain of love, then kaavalan movie is for u. . .Dont miss it. . Easily, its vijay's best performance over a period of time. . .

I was very much disappointed with d make up of Asin. . Didn't they watch Ghajini. .Vel. .Dasa. .Pokkiri and other Asin movies. . But her make up was a lot better in d second half. . .

Performance wise Asin is Asin. . .Chanceless. .She was just awesome. . . Minor changes to suit the tamil audience has been spot on and brings even better script than the original. . Vadivelu was so hilarious. . .Mithra had nothing other than being a walking doll. . .

Asin's screen presence and her cute expressions in all the songs were rocking. . Vijay looked young and vibrant specially in the yaaradhu song. . .Dance as usual, its just simple and stylish. . Song picturisation is perfect with Vijay and Asin. .Blockbuster written all over it. . .

When it comes to d pain of love, romance with vijay and of course her feelings will surely cannot be matched with anyone. . . Its a come back of sorts for vijay who will be focusing on rebuilding his carrier with kaavalan. .Was pleasantly surprised by his acting. .He made full justice to the role and of course not to forget Siddique to have given us a wonderful love story. . .

The senior actors Rajkiran and Roja made their presence felt and the music by Vidhyasagar was OK. .

Expecting an award for Asin and if there's no political issues in awarding her performance, then she will surely win it. . .
