KANDA NAAL MUDHAL...


"Kanda naal mudhalai
Kaadhalperuguthadi...
Kanda naal mudhalai..
Kaa..dhalperuguthadi..."

These opening lines keep ringing in my ears even after an hour has passed since i came out of the movie hall! Yes... I MUST be among the few unlucky ones to have seen the movie so late, a full 7 weeks after it was released. Yet... yet, the beauty of the movie struck me as something rare... as fresh as a cup of coffee!

The movie is like this beautiful sweet poem that you learnt so long ago that you forgot when, but a poem whose words you remmeber without effort, ages later, as if you heard it just yesterday! The movie churns a nice sweet emotion within you. It makes you well with a sweet joy... unexplainable; yet beautiful and wholesome!It falls in the line of Azhagiya Theeye...a movie i go back to again and again!

Talking about more mundane stuff, it was after almost 5 times of gong for the movie, did i finally go! And uncannily I saw the movie in the very same theatre- mini Udhayam- as Azhagiya Theeye!

Both times i felt the legspace was less and felt a trifle cramped. But both times, i emerged out of the theatre with a bubble of happiness sweeling within! :)

Prasanna... I've always been madly, head over heels-y in love with this guy! I've had major crushes on Madhavan and PrithviRaj and Surya. But in some different way, this guy has impressed me in a way the others didn't. Madhavan's look have a slight sophistication and he was already taken before he entered cinema! :( Prithviraj is adorable. Surya's innocent crystal-clear eyes bowled me over, yet Jyothika was always at the back of my mind!:(

Prasanna... No such hindrances! :D He's drool-worthy and his dimple's worth a million bucks! Man... this guy rocks! He's so charming and he's a helluva actor! And... he's got such a boy-next-door look(i so wish he WERE my boy next door *wink wink*).

Karthik Kumar is as handsome as ever! That guy's eyes have DEPTH, man! Laila is cute and pretty and everything sugary-sweet-delightful! I've always liked her and i adored her in this movie! She's so cute and her dresses were superb!Someone, pl connect me to her designer!!!

Well.. a long time wish got fulfilled today by my watching the movie and i'm glad and at supreme peace with the world. I'm really glad that people like Prakash Raj, discover and nurture, such wonderful yet raw talent. And i'm glad that such beautiful cinema is still being made; and yeah, i almost forgot to add... with such a handsome bloke called Prasanna in the lead!

Hi.. hope u had a nice pongal festival at home...

well prasanna has replaced the MURALI - MOHAN kind of heroes. Tamil industry had desperate need of a NON-ACTION boy next door kind of hero who can ACT and i think Prasanna does it well. Karthik is the Affluent - spoilt brat kind of look guy and this role suited him pretty well... and doesnt this guy ever grow old??? he looks the same as he used to in alaipayuthey....
:-)

Hats off to Prakash Raj who took his chance with a new director Priya. Another lady to prove the talent of women in a male dominated profession of film directors

ya i too after a long time went out to the theatre to watch this movie it was truly amazing. Prasanna was truly amazing. Laila her usual bubbly best. Only the evam guy didnot have much of a role though. overall awesome movie to enjoy. Definitely a must watch I thought of writing a review of this movie in my blog. guess no need for that. And the song kanda naal mudhalai is my fav song in that movie

hei sandhya,

the movie was awesome...i liked Azhagiya Theeye too...prasanna is really doing great...dont know why his films doesnt get a big box office hit and all..though they are very good, deeply romantic and they have a nice storyline....

i loved the second hour of this movie onwards...was just great to see the chemistry getting built between prasanna and laila :) hope more of this kind comes ....
