A gentle touch!

Any Balu Mahendra film for that matter, won't be just another film. Of course, this film is a remake. But you could see Balu Mahendra in every frame.

Cinematography is as usual excellent. Music by Ilaiyaraaja will stir your heart.

I won't call this a true art film. For in some way it does have commercial elements.

Revathy, Rohini, Aravind Swamy and Ravi played important roles. All were just fantastic! Personally I liked Aravind Swamy the most. Balu has once again scored in direction.

Many films may become successful at box office. But only few films remain in our heart. Balu('s) Marupadiyum enters your heart!
