I desperately wanted to watch this movie as soon as I can because I saw in one of the very last interviews of Director Balu Mahendra sir's after the release of his "Thalaimuraigaal", he said and I quote - " In my entire career, I only made 3 movies completely according to my desire. There were Sandhya Ragam, Veedu and Thalaimuraigal. The rest all had compromises that I had to make for Kodambakkam (referring to the commercial aspects)"
So, as soon as I watched the movie I write this review.
This movie spells Balu Mahendra in every aspects and in every single emotion of its. Watching this film is like knowing who Balu Mahendra is.
1) If you tell him how well he captures images in the available 'Natural Light', he would immediately stop you and say - "You call it Natural Light, I call it The God's Light. What better light am I going to make than what the almighty throws on us in abundance ?" This movie has entirely been captured with the God's Light itself in a manner which the God himself might be astonished to know can create.
2) The story as he always says, is the simplest one ever. There isn't even the slightest of complications in narrative to elaborate. It is just about a middle class woman who has set out to build a house for herself.
3) Realism. This movie could feel very much like something that could have happened to you.
4) Ilayaraja sir's music. I must agree, after being a born A.R.Rahman fan, I finally begin to understand and develop a liking towards Raja Sir's music.
A lot can be told. But it is better you watch and know for yourself.
