MAGHESH, SARANYA, MATTAM PALAR
(i hope I got it right)
Everytime, in movie reviews, it is always commented, "this is a romance movie with a difference/twist". But 99% of the time this is not true.
But if the same was quoted for this movie, then I will agree about this movie.
I watched this movie with reluctance, esp when knowing it was Sakthi Vasu was the hero of the movie. But my brother persuaded me to see it, coz this is different he said and I had to agree with him.
This movie is about a young man(Maghesh), who spends 6 months in Chennai, doing his exams. Upon his return home for his sister's wedding, he starts informing his family about his experience in Chennai and how he fell in love with the gal Sandhaya in bits and pieces to his family. Everyone in his family, wants to know the details, from grandpa right to nephews/nieces. In between the sister's wedding was called off twice, once because she met an accident and two, the groom's grandma was sick. Groom's grandma wanted both her grandson and granddaugther's wedding to take place the same day. So arrangement was made, and the wedding was about to take place, when the grand-daugther's (Anjali) groom, did not turn up for the wedding. To save face, Anjali parents asked Mahgesh parents if Maghesh can marry Anjali. While the whole family are for it, only Mahgesh is not agreeable to it. The whole wedding is then called off.
Everyone is angry with Maghesh. Finally, Maghesh decides to reveal the reason for saying "no" to Anjali's parents.
Now here is the twist. That is for you to watch this movie and find out.
Acting by Sakthi Vasu, Sandhaya and Santhanu. Although I do not know rest of actors/actress. Director is RAvi and music is by Vidyasagar.
Now, what I liked about this movie, good direction, story line and good music.
What I did not like about this movie, again, Sakthi could not emote his feelings. Although his lipsync has improved.
I wish someone else was acting in his shoes. All other actors/actresses did well with their role. Second, thing which I did not like was "everything was too perfect", perfect family, perfect inlaws, perfect friends and you are expecting a tragedy to lurk behind. You know something 'bad' is going to happen.
Overall I would give this movie.
A watchable movie.
