A typical Selvaragavan Movie
25 November 2011 | by vijayr2002See all my reviews

This movie is all about passion and love. Karthik Subramanium (Dhanush) is an aspiring photographer who wants to make it big in wildlife photography. He wants to join the famous photographer Madhan Krishnasamy (Ravi Prasad) who he thinks is his idol. Dhanush has a group of friends with whom he hangs out with. Sundar (Sundar) plays a vital role in this film as a friend of Karthik. Sundar introduces Yaamini (Richa Gangopadhyay) to his friends as his girlfriend. Yaamini later falls in love with Karthik. What happens to their love and friendship should be watched in theatre. This movie is not above the story, it's all about the way it has been told and the performance of the actors.

I don't want to provide any spoiler in this review. This is a typical Selvaragavan movie that shows the deep emotions of the characters. Love and passion has been portrayed very well in this movie. The best part of the movie is the dialogues. Each and every dialogue receives amazing response from the audience. The humour has been maintained through out the 1st half.

Ramji's cinematography stands out, i believe this is the best movie that shows his full capabilities. G.V. Prakash did well, the audio was already a hit. BGM doesn't have any soul. What Yuvan gave for 7/G Rainbow Colony is missing. Voda Voda and Naan sonadhu mazhai vandhucha has been shot well. While the expectation for Kadhal en Kadhal was really high, i was disappointed with the video. The casting made this movie look much better. Richa, Dhanush and Sundar have lived their characters. The dubbing for Richa which was given by Deepa Venkat gave life to Yaamini's character. Dhanush can express anything, he is the perfect director's actor.The portrayal of intense feelings of Love, Passion, Friendship, Alcoholism makes this movie stand out from the crowd.

Don't miss this movie. Please watch it in theatre. Youngsters are going to love this movie. The screenplay is crafted so well by Selvaragavan. Hats off to the Team! They have given their best.
