One of the Best Tamil Films
24 September 2005 | by wingfoot2388See all my reviews

I loved this film, which I watched quite awhile back, but still remember very clearly. All the songs were excellent, including amazing dance sequences (props to Prabhu!), and Kajol was beautiful, as always. One of the best songs in the movie includes a parade, great choreography with both Prabhu and Kajol. In the film, Kajol's character wants to become a nun, and is dedicated to God. However, Arvind's character loves her, and would do anything to have her love him, so he hires another guy (Prabhu) to do the work. As it turns out, Prabhu's character falls in love with her. So now, the girl is caught between two guys while she is aspiring to become a nun. And when you're a nun, there is no time for men...so it seems like the perfect solution. However, she is torn between her choices... I recommend that you watch this movie, because it has a great plot, a WONDERFUL ending, great music and all in all, it's just plain entertaining!
