A true Balu Mahendra Masterpiece (10/10)
23 August 2002 | by darbarSee all my reviews

This movie is one of the few tamil movies that are worth watching multiple times. The movie has to be watched closely and is not your everyday indian masala movie to watch while you do your usual chores.

Kovai Sarala and Kamalahassan have done an amazing job with their Coimbatore (kovai) tamizh accent. There are absolutely no unnecessary scenes and the humour is clean and neat. Thanks to Crazy Mohan's dialogues. This is rare in the current thamizh movies. Illayaraja has done his job in the two songs and the background score which is very apt. Kamalahassan has for once not "hogged" the screen and acted according to Balu Mahendra's direction.

Sathi Leelavathi is one of my all time favourite films.
