Cool Romantic
3 June 2008 | by touchjenSee all my reviews

I had seen this film in my UG second year. I simply loved, loves the film. Kajoland all other portraits to feel of the movie. It implicitly tells the life romantic scenes, especially in the song VENNILAVE VENNILAVE. tells Love differ from money. The friendly character of Prabhu Deva makes chemistry with love hated, especially marriage hated but cheerful Kajol. Arvindsamy character exploits very well with his professional look. Like the crown to all A.R.rahman's mind throbbing music which wins heart

Believe me, I have watched this more then dozen times.
