wow...a Movie with a Heart
13 March 2010 | by vivek iyerSee all my reviews

After a long time,i have a seen a romantic movie with great music and excellent acting.10 years after Alaipayuthey,here comes a story which is not a love triangle and concentrates only between the 2 characters,Karthik played by Silambarasan and Jesse played by Trisha Krishnan

15 minutes into the movie you get completely hooked as the movie has a great start with excellent background music by A.R.Rahman and you feel the same as the main protagonist Karthik feels for Jesse.all you want while watching, is the love story between karthik and Jesse to happen.

The movie scores high on its screenplay and keeps you hooked scene by scene,the dialogues which is kept simple but still with a high feel.Superb cinematography,Kerala has never been so beautiful before.

But finally the movie belongs to 4 very important people 1)T.R.Silambarasan as karthik who has enacted his part with great charm and his lover boy attitude is hard to ignore 2)Trisha as Jesse,a girl who u can really say as a girl next door with her sexy looks even in her Indian attire,which is hard to find in today's movies as most of the heroins concentrate on western looks.She plays her part well and forms a great pair with karthik. 3)a fantastic music by A.R rahman,his background score makes you feel and drives you into the movie and also some great songs like hosanna,Omanapenne,Mannipaya.You really have to watch this movie to believe why A.R. Rahman is considered the Best in the business 4)and finally,the director Gautham Menon,after a string of hits like Minnale,Kakha Kakha,Vettaiyadu Vilayadu,Vaaranam Aayiram and now Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya.,the direction by Gautham Menon is superb and effort can be seen during the climax when u get a huge surprise

my verdict..10 out of 10...watch it for its sincerity and for its feel
