Rating: 3 stars

Here's another love story, that has all the ingredients of a fine family drama. With Humor sprinkled on about 60% of the movie, it turns out to be a very well made and a clean flick that can be watched with everyone in the house hold. That is the primary Plus of this movie. For the romance lovers, Surya and Jyotika provide adequate fun and romance with their more than average acting. Nazer and VijayKumar who play friend turned foe music directors, (adequately supported by the rest of the cast) take care of the drama content. It goes without saying that they do their roles with aplomb. Humor is taken care by Delhi-Ganesh and Kovai Sarala (in separate portions), and Crazy Mohan's hilarious dialogues provide the required ammunition not only for them, but to the complete movie. There is no separate track for humor, but that is another plus for the movie.

The story is not anything novel. Surya and Jyothika in Poovellaam KettuppaarTwo music directors Bharathi (VijayKumar) and Kannan( Nazer) who do music together, get separated for frivolous reasons. Their wards Surya and Jyothika fall for each other, not knowing this. But when they get to know of this, they vow to get married , only with both of their parents'consent. How they accomplish this , forms rest of the story. There is nothing new even with the screen play. However, it has to be admitted that that dialogues and the flow of the movie itself keeps you sitting straight.

All in all, a really cool movie that provides clean entertainment all the way. Yuvan Shankar Raja's music and re-recording deserve special mention. The songs are very good to listen. However, Vasanth has failed to picturize them effectively. I feel that in general, he is very poor in picturizing songs. I would call it another "Aaha" from Crazy Mohan's influence.
