All that discussion on Mouna Raagam had me scouring through youtube and I saw some parts of the film once again! I cannot believe that even after more than 20 years, that film not only looks fresh, but also seems so relevant!
Its like a visual treatise on an arranged marriage! That's Mani Sir, for you!
Deepika needs improvement, pronto! Her expression's and dialouge delivery are very weak, to say the least! And one cannot give the excuse that she is new ect, ect! There are many newcomers who do a spectacular job in their first show itself! Besides, the girl also lacks in screen-presence!
I am counting on some good chemistry between Anas and Deepika...they do look very nice in the title song! And sometimes, when you are opposite a good actor, it kinds of rubs off on you! Lets wait and see!
Bhabho seems to have calmed down a bit in yesterday's episode!
Poppy same here
... went to YT and saw Mounaragam bits... Not only the movie , even the BG score [listening again to it after a long time ] appears timeless !! ..Mouna Ragam N Pudhu Pudhu Arthangal [ esp the last part n Sowcar Janaki bit] expressed Marriage beautifully, I think...
Yes, My Heart sinks when I realize that the stoy is about to begin and the Heorine is ill-prepared .Bhabhosa at least has toned down and does not shout indiscriminately like previous episodes ..
Screen presence perhaps will come when she gets a bit more confidence .. saw her in ra.1 launch..she seemed to be bit gauche and retiring type .. she needs to overcome that ..
