Before the movie review..makkalay..pona posta pathutu mothama naan blog worldlenthu apeet aagarennu santhosha patta makkaluku..ungala avlo easya nimmathia iruka udra idea lethandi :) Uncanny sonna mathiri thirutu proxy ushaar panra velaila theevirama eranga vendi thaan :D Now for the review.
This is not a once-in-a-life-time-never-before-told story sort of a movie. Inum solanumna..its so simple that, i can bet you there would be atleast one friend in your gang whose life story would match frame by frame with this one. The story is so simple..dialogues so natural..no major twists (Except for the ending..grrrrrrr). Apramum intha padathula pudikara mathiri enna iruku?? Well..to me..i felt the natural nature of the movie is its strength. No hype..over the top emotions..unwanted sentiments..everything is measured. Gautam menon even pokes fun at himself at some scenes. Its a simple tamil Hindu tenant boy, who is aspiring movie director, falling in love with Mallu christian landlord's girl, who is a programmer in Polaris. Climaxla avanga serarangala ilaya? athaan kathai. The way in which its told is what i felt might make the movie tick.
I pinched myself before typing this. I know i would regret typing these lines...aaarrrghh.. Sombu is actually good in the movie. At times he even looks like karan johar (avvvvv...kalikaalam!!) Enakenamo he would felt so easy to fit into this role, considering his romantic escapades. The way he delivers the dialouges are also so natural. Not the forced veral aatra sombu in his other movies. This one is a path breaker for him and he hasnt disappointed. He is beleivable as the love sick chocolate boy who falls head over heels for Trisha. And Trisha!!!! avvvvvvvvvvvv...never have plain white saree with a simple dark color on the border looked so sexy and chic!! She is adorably cute and looks a million bucks. (rt..i cudnt believe u managed to notice the way she walked!! i thought she was floating throughout :D ok..gils..control control) Her character is majorly confused though. Sujathavoda "Anithavin Kathalgal"la vara heroine mathiri Gautam try panirukar nenakren. At times she is so sure of what she wants and next moment she is so confused. Looks apart..she barely shows any emotion on her face. Even the best scene of the movie, to me, when they meet again in London, there is hardly any emotion on her otherwise plastic face. Sombu kuda vara sidekick character!! WOW..amazing guy. He doesnt say punch dialogues. Not even comic dialogues for that matter. But the situations he get into and the tone with which he speaks brings genuine laughter. Nicely characterised.
ARR!!! No wonder he won all those awards. For a change..the background music was particulary good and very different from his usual movies. Songs are already chartbusters and you would love them even more after watching the movie. The second half of the movie, where sombu tries to direct a movie is interestingly picturised and nicely sets things up for the twist in the end..which was a real dampner for me :( This movie simply ooozes with romance and guess what..trish and sombu combo actually has gud chemistry on screen. To borrow lines from Porkodi, If you liked Gautam's first movie, "Minnale" which incidentally is a movie i will never forget in my life :), you will end up liking this one too. Its a simple feel good romantic movie, with good..sorry..great songs and some nice looking lead pair. Mast movie to chillout over a tub of popcorn.
