A good Movie starring Vijay after a long time
19 May 2005 | by chucky_555See all my reviews

The story unfolds in a flash back. Sachein studies in a college in Ooty and his classmate is Shalini, a hot tempered girl. Sachein meets Shalini on a rainy day and both instantly get attracted towards each other. When the whole college considers her a beauty queen, it is Sachein who pretends to pay no attention to her. She gets annoyed of Sachein's behaviour. They cross each other for something or other. After a few encounters both realize that they are in love. Finally when Sachein speaks out his love for her, she turns it down because her ego does not permit her to accept it. Sachein challenges that he would make her say that she is in love with him before the college closes for vacations. Shalini comes and tells Sachein that she is soon to marry a boy chosen by her parents on the college closing day. Sachein does not believe it till he meets Shalini's parents the same day. They also confirm the proposal. Sachein, now a heartbroken person accepts the defeat. She feels happy that she has defeated Sachein at least once and she decides to disclose her love to him. At this juncture, Sachein's father (Raghuvaran) a business magnate from US turns up in the campus to meet his son. Shalini is in a dilemma now since she feels that if she declares her love at this juncture, Sachein would misunderstand that her change of heart took place after knowing his financial status. A dejected Sachein decides to go back and tries to talk to Shalini at least once before leaving, from the airport, but in vain. When he is about to board the flight, Shalini turns up at the airport, the lovers unite and all ends well. Vijay as Sachein has done a commendable job. Vijay does full justice as Sachein, the cool and composed youth who is at ease in any situation. Genelia of Boys fame bowls you over with her stunning looks and mind blowing performance as the hot tempered girl. She effectively brings out the pains of a girl in love, unable to tell it out due to her ego. Bipasha Basu has been reduced to nothing. Her song was also cut. Vadivelu's comedy is enjoyable. Debutant Joahn Mahendran's narrative is quite unique. Though the film has shades of Vijay's earlier film Khushi, the treatment makes it different and interesting. Devi Sri Prasad's music is good. Jeeva's cinematography makes the film a visual treat. I watched this movie more than 15 times, especially for Genelia, she is really cute.
