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

excellent, but...
24 April 2005 | by dsklodginskiSee all my reviews

I liked this movie a lot - the characters were engrossing & the music wonderful. But.. and it's a big one, the DVD version that I saw is horribly subtitled. The sentence structure is garbled, words are misspelled and worst of all the subtitles flash by on the screen and sometimes cannot be read even with the speed set at slow plus often times they are way behind the action on the screen. It's really a shame because it is a contemporary & culturally interesting adaptation of Sense & Sensibilty if you can see your way clear of the subtitles. This is actually one time I would have preferred a dubbed version. Perhaps with the success of Bride and Prejudice someone will see fit to release this movie with the subtitles it deserves.
