Film for True lovers and Especially for a True Girl who is in love!
20 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Only the People who knows the Depth of Love and Pain in it and the who misses someone badly,A "GIRL" who loves his "GUY" Truly/badly will love this wonderful Movie "Neethaane En Ponvasantham",yes this movie is only for the True Lovers and not for all..and its a Girl's Love Story!:)

And the one who said its a Bad/Mokka movie is the one who dose'not know what is "Love" or else the "ART of Filmmaking" or the usual Masala movie lovers.This film beautifully showcases the Egoistic nature in the couples,how the fights are happening between the couples in 'Reality'..And,those who said the songs are misplaced,or too many songs in the films,Come'on its a different or NEW way of "Storytelling"..Gautham conveyed what he wants to tell to the audience through SONGS,he incorporated the songs through the Screenplay(Matured people ll understand,i guess)..Oh God! the Acting of SAMANTHA was chance less..after watching this film i have became your fan officially :P,basically i was not impressed by your beauty at all,and now to be agreed that you are beautiful and u are an wonderful actor too!:) Jiva too acted well,his romance and egoistic behavior acting was totally good..but i was very impressed with Sam's acting much than Jiva's acting!..Gautham well used Maestro Ilayaraja sir by the beautiful songs,generally every director wants the situation BGM from him,but GVM used him differently by songs and pictured on the screen well..I particularly liked the breakup scene b4 the Post interval and it was Great..:) :)..

But technically the film is not up to the GVM film standards..Cinematography was above average,few angles were good but some of the top angles didn't suite according to the situation..and slight scenes were not executed properly and also Editing was Horrible,these were the flaws in the technical dept!

Note to mas-ala movie lovers : "If you don't like artistic,realistic,slow paced movies..don't say its Bad/Mokka movie,Just because it did not ENTERTAIN u dose'not means the film is BAD,and u guys are unlucky to watch these kinda movies and u guys don't deserve to tell these kinda movies(3,anbeshivam,Maniratnam sir movies movies,etc) the word MOKKA".

Note to GVM : Thank u very much sir for delivering a warm hearted soulful movie! and am proud to say that "Am" your FAN!! :) :) because even though u gained much popularity or more fans after VTV,u dint make this film as COMMERCIAL one just to maintain your fan-level,u proved this is your way of filmmaking and will not allow any commercial add-ons in your movie!!..In that am proud to be your FAN sir!!...

Note to Lovers : If u love someone badly/truly don't make them hurt or Don't break-up at any point or situation,Love actually makes u immature and u need to overcome that immaturity and need to understand the problem and try to make the solution for it..When it comes love,Time and Education will not permit and it will resist u and so u guys need to handle the situation well,so that need to be Matured first!! and final thing don't make YOUR GIRL CRY,she will not bare that pain (My opinion after watching this movie)....and also Before accepting the love the BOY will be mad in love with her and after the girl accepts the "Love"..She will love more than the boy!...#True Story

So,on the whole...Film is Superb! and my rating : 10/10 (as an audience)and 8/10 (crucially/technically)
