Awesome !!!!
5 March 2010 | by beravi4See all my reviews

Well frankly saying it is a ten year wait to watch a full length romantic movie after ALAIPAYUTHE being released. Great work Gautam,the movie is very close to heart with no added ingredients.The movie is pure and simple, and the narration is excellent. It may not be the usual stuff with comedy and fights, but still its worth a watch more than once. The lead pair is terrific, with Simbu in a new avatar, a territory which he has never charted. Trisha is amazing as Jessie, many will fall in love for her after this movie. Definitely, this move can be one of their best performance till date. ARR is amazing as usual, the BGM and the songs are awesome. At many part u would be dragged into the movie unknowingly.Of course the movie has other routine Gautam stuff. Though it may not be convincing to everyone, but still all those who watch the movie will have one moment in the movie which will be close to them, if that is so then, the mission of the director is achieved. I would recommend this movie for all you people who waited for a romantic piece. A final word, Gautam should we wait for another 10 years for another romantic movie?
