Best Romantic,Comedy Film Ever
14 November 2017 | by disizzgskSee all my reviews

I have seen the movie in telugu version Merupu Kalalu movie name.It was dubbed in telugu and Hindi also. when i was teenage passionate about this movie songs and so tempted music by AR Rahman and songs super hit. Love everything in movie, can't miss each one frame beautiful love story between three youngsters. Every character played different way to express best scenes and especially about Kajol actress and Prabhudeva and AR Rahman Music. I have been big fan of Kajol since Kuch kuch hota hai movie she is amazing actress and found few movies very such big hit in 2000s.

Story is completely moving around one Girl and love story between two guys really much appreciate story narration. Prabhu deva dance in songs are big asset.

A Girl wants to become Nun and how her life is turned, its a super story screenplay. AVM productions presented in golden jublee celebrations they don't forget this movie ever. Its a such huge big hit to All Star Casting Director and Music Director. so many awards won especially Vennelave Vennelave song its a ultimate song ever and beautiful choreography got a national award.

Any way as a big fan of kajol i satisfied with movie lot and lot and found best romantic musical love story.
