7 years ago on this day a cute love story stole the hearts of the audience. The film is a triumph of conviction in more ways than one. Imagine pairing someone like Nayanthara with Jai or pairing a newcomer like Nazriya with Arya. Atlee does both and succeeds in a big way.
More than the present I always lean towards the flashback where there is ample doses of humour and sentiment. And Nazriya is gifted is one of the best heroine intro scenes of all time. I can watch the film again and again just for that scene alone.
And Nayathara too makes a stunning comeback after a break. As if to I am here to stay. As for Arya if there is one film of his that I would always go back to it has to be Raja Rani. He is very adorable and restrained throughout the film.
Jai and Santham are an absolute riot in their portions. Even someone like Motta Rajendran who is usually loud is extremely funny. The songs by GV Prakash still rules our playlist.
But more than anything else it is Sathyaraj’s portrayal as the dignified Dad and his dialogue about second chances that always gives me hope. Amidst all the film that glorify the pain of love here is a film that tells us that there are second chances at love and life.
No wonder the film is an audience favourite. Even now the film is a repeat watch whenever it is telecast on Vijay Tv
