Retro Reel #4 : Home is where the heart is

Previous Retro Reels

The movie pick of this week  KELADI KANMANI (English Translation : Listen to me, my dear) released in 1990 was directed by Vasanth, starring noted playback singer SP Balasubrahmanyam and Radhika Sarathkumar

CastS.P. Balasubrahmanyam , Radhika ,Ramesh Arvind,Anju , Gita , JanakRaj , SriVidya, Charlie , Chinni Jayanth, Vivek , Poornam Viswanathan .

Plot :  The movie begins with the love-hate relationship between Anu (Anju) and Sasi (Ramesh Aravind). We also see that Anu is a motherless child, reared by an understanding father, A.R.R (S.P. Balasubrahmanyam). As the relationship between Anu and Sasi gradually blossoms into love, Anu's intuition tells her that something is going to go wrong. True to her feelings, she is diagnosed with a terminal disease. After coming to terms with the fact that death is at her doorstep, Anu expresses her last wish to Sasi. She wants to find Sharada (Radhika), who once wanted to marry her father A.R.R (S.P. Balasubrahmanyam), but had to part ways because of Anu's stubbornness. Sasi leaves no stone unturned in finding Sharada. Secretly everyone hopes that Anu will survive. But will she?

This is SPB's first movie to have him in the lead role. He had acted in a few Balachandar Sir's  movies in cameos and small roles before. It was unprecedented...but SPB suited the slightly overweight typical  common man.LOL The girl Anju..who later acted in many Radaan serials was a child star before this movie.

The movie won numerous prestigious awards.

And who can forget the song , where SPB sings Mannil Indha Kadhal without catching a breath Clap The lyrics so magical , Illayaraja's tunes & Marina beach which was so empty & clean once Ouch

Wow..another good selection of the movie. I love the song...actually two of is SBBs "mannil intha kadhal" and the other one "kapure mullai ondru". 

SB suited the daddy role and the movie is a nice family movie. Its sad we never knew the girls fate at the end - she just went on a roadtrip with her boyfriendErmm
