Suseendhiran's latest movie with mostly newcomers has hit the screens on this Independence day. As usual watched it on first day. Sussendhiran gave us back to back good movies like Venilla Kabadi Kuzhu, Naan Mahan Alla and Azhagar Saamiyin Kuthirai. He apologized his audience for giving a bad movie, Rajapattai and promised he will give us a better movie in Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer. As promised, he is back with a good movie.
I was not even expecting this kind of movie going by the title "Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer". I was expecting Suseendhiran going to tell all the good things that can happen because of love and will end the movie saying "Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer". I was not really prepared for the actual end of the movie
The film started as expected, set in college background, two friends falling in love, but I was in for a surprise in the second half and the ending was really touching. The hero, newcomer Santhosh and heroine Manisha, Vazhakku En fame, falls in love and things was going smooth until Manisha gets pregnant. What happens after that and how people around them, especially both their parents react and how everyone changes is the plot of the movie. I was just wondering with my friend while watching, they could have easily avoided getting into this situation and why they didn't do it since they have already planned for this. Suseenthiran just show things as it happens and didn't try to give any message or solution for the issue.
The hero could have done well, he doesn't look good (a producer's son it seems). The heroine Manisha is really good, she can act and looks good. The supporting casts, hero's friend Arjun, after Kadhalil Sothappuvathu Epdi has done well with his one liners which makes you laugh mostly. He finally got a girlfriend in this movie. The heroine's parents acting is biggest plus for the movie, especially her mom (don't know her name) along with her father (Jayaprakash).
The movie's actual hero is Yuvan Shankar Raja. Right from the beginning to till the end he holds the movie together with beautiful songs and excellent BGM. Movie starts with the "Mella Sirithal" song sung by Yuvan and ends with another emotional song sung by himself again, which is really the highlight of the movie. The movie's length is less than two hours and should appreciate the director for that.
Suseenthiran is back with a really good movie which doesn't praise about Love, doesn't give you reason to Love, but the reality of the things happening in the name of Love. Maybe he is trying to say: "Aadhalal Kadhal Seiveer" not something else in the name of Love, that's how I relate the title to this movie.
My Rating - 3.5/5.0.
