Storyline

Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility is transplanted to contemporary Tamil-speaking India. Serious elder sister Sowmya falls in love with aspiring film director Manohar. Passionate younger sister Meenakshi is admired from afar by wounded commando Captain Bala, but her young heart is set on Srikanth, a businessman who shares her fondness for poetry. More complications arise when the sisters' grandfather passes away, and they loose their place in the family home. Written by L. Hamre

A classic in the making...!

Kandukondaen Kandukondean....

This movie is gonna linger in my mind throughout my life...as it is one of the movies which gives u the ultimate--"Feel Good" feeling..! The main plot is an aspiring director( Ajith )could get a break in the film industry and in the other part how he maintains his love life in spite of the failures he faces in this process..The Star cast is impressive with Ajith(The reigning star in tamil cinema),Mamooty( Malayalam industry's legend),Aishwarya(Miss universe)and others...The Songs are too good that i got all the lyrics memorized..! For the international audience,i recommend this movie for its sheer indulgence to the south Indian culture,aishwarya rai in a different format!,and of course the main plot of difficulties faced by a director in Kollywood(Chennai,India).. A light hearted movie which wont disappoint u..check it out..!
