    Yes Ji. Its live sound. They shudve dubbed instead of using live sound. I wanted to convey this and ended up posting a wrong sentence. May be they were concentrating in memorising and delivering their dialogues right and missed out on the right stress and pauses.

    Watched it in Rex Cinemas here in Singapore. Main screen was given to Kanchana 2 since Golden Village (one of the major cinemas locally) was already showing OKK but not K2. Absolutely loved the movie. Didn't feel the 2hr 20min at all. A very cute and relevant movie. MR was absolutely in his element. Save for a couple of scenes, it was a full feel-good movie. Came out loving my girlfriend even more (if it was possible :P)

    Loved the placement of all songs, especially Naane Varuven which is my favourite in the album. ARR was a genius once again with the BGM. That naughty little bit early on when the leads talk on the phone for the second time. And also using Satya Prakash's part in Naane Varuven (Chinanjiru chinanjiru ragasiyame....) in full effect for one of the scenes. PCS was also technically excellent. Stand out moments were when Dulqueer (spelling?) was explaining to his boss the concept of his game early on. The zooming in and out to add tension was brilliant. Paranthu sellava was also visually pleasing, in terms of cinematography and also lighting.

    Acting and casting was spot on. Especially the leads and Prakash Raj. The only character was only the 'buddy' character. Fortunately, he doesn't appear for most of the film. MR has used the reportedly low budget (12 crores?) well. All in all, loved the film. That said, it'd be unfair to compare this to Alaipayuthey though it's unavoidable. If you're still undecided to watch it or not, do yourself a favour, bring your girl or guy and go. Thank me later. And if you are single, well, go as well and see what you are potentially missing out on

    Never argue with a fool or he will drag you down to his level and beat you at it through sheer experience!

    Decent movie ... the initial meetings and the dialogies between the lead roles felt forced / awkward. Mani tried to pull of a Arjun & Meera with a lot more romance, didn't work for me. After the first few meetings the chemistry is wonderful.

    Once again a very good performance from Prakash Raj and well supported by his wife character. This plot is also very critical to the success the movie is enjoying.

    A very good second half. Some very good romantic and moving scenes, specially the one where Prakash Raj brings his wife back from the hospital and she tells him someday she is going to forget him.

    Good ending to a good movie.The big plus is Mani had a simple plot and didn't try to pull off something very spectacular and spoil it with twists.

    Overall a very good movie. Nothing extra ordinary or nothing that screams the legend Mani is back.

    Edit : Forgot to mention about the BGM, brilliant at many important moments.

    A very soft movie from MR. Probably the movie with the least 'heaviness' in the plot. The only earlier fluff I can think of is probably 'Thiruda Thiruda'. That being said, wonderfully made movie. The simplicity of the plot makes MR weave his magic and regain his rightful place in Tamil cinema. He is probably the only classy intellectual in Tamil cinema that has maintained it over the last few decades, in spite of the misadventures up north.

    With such a small budget, quick production and release, this movie should set him on the right path to becoming the leader at least in Tamil movies. Trying to combine Hindi and Tamil sentiments rarely works and Mani has quite a few wounds to vouch for that. Hoping to see more of Mani in Tamil. Those guys in north don't deserve him anyway. They can have their Khans and Kapoors.

    And, while on the movie, what a find as the lead pair.... Both Dulquer and Nithya are wonderful! Hope the tamil movie directors use Nithya in more roles, in spite of her non-standard-imported-actress look. One can only hope...
