This time Gautam Vasudev Menon has given us a wonderful love story. I went to Satyam for Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya with 40 of my classmates today. We simply forgot Silambarasan Rajendar and Trisha Krishnan and could only see is Karthick and Jessie romancing. Once again the name Karthick has got a romantic character after Alaipayuthey, Rhythm and Mozhi.
VTV has some impacts of the director's previous movie Vaaranam Aayiram like love at first sight, Simbu almost imitates Suriya in most of the shots - probably Gautam is still in Vaaranam Aayiram hangover. First half starts with Jessie's wedding at a church where Karthick narrates his flashback. It looked more romantic with limited narrations and excellent screenplay. Unlike other Gautam movies second half is interesting despite its slow pace. Simbu proved himself as an actor in the second half (He has not used his finger mannerism and punch dialogues for the whole movie). I'm sure you will think about your love at present or in the past for at least a moment at the climax.
Gautam Menon has given special care for every characters in this movie. Simbu and Trisha have given their best performance in this movie. Ganesh Janardhanan has got a unforgettable character as Karthick's friend. K.S.Ravikumar comes as director and makes us laugh with his simple comments. But most of the characters were missing in the second half. Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography is the key of the movie's success, especially the Malta Island and the locals of Alappuzha are treat for eyes.
Music - from the beginning till the end, A R Rahman has given excellent background score. Songs are more seasoned with Rahman Music. Vaalvukum Pakkam Vanthen part in Hosanna, Swasthi Swasthi Muhurtham chorus in Aaromalae and Kollamal Unnai Kondru Pudaithaen in Mannipaya have given some exceptional moments from A R R. Background music at the climax part of the movie is incredible. Rahman rocks!!!
In whole this is made for those who loves Love...
