You’ll end up crying. You’ll end up regretting. You’ll end up fresh. You’ll end up shaken. This much I can promise, if you are anything like me.
Such an emotional roller-coaster ride this movie is. Tugs at your emotions.
The movie is quiet slow, most of the scenes are drawn-out. Unnecessarily (or uncannily) lengthy. But the final impact is such that you’ll cry like a baby.
Some of the more immediate emotions: nostalgia, regret, love – unrequited or otherwise, respect, friendship and a profound sense of freshness.
The entire team needs to be thanked. Starting from the phenomenal Music Director Govind Menon. And then the one-and-only Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi. He’s done it yet again with a subtle performance that is going to stand-up for ages. Trisha Krishnan’s best is Jaanu role, topping Jessie with ease.
The most important factor is that the Director C. Prem Kumar has steadfastly held on to the practical stuff, ditching most of the expectations of the audience. He could have easily shown Ram and Jaanu do anything and we’d all have lapped it up. But he didn’t and therein he stands tall.
A pure movie: no vulgarities, no double-meaning jokes, no idiotic song sequences, no dancing in skimpy jumpsuits, no fight sequences.
Just full of emotional heart-warming moments. (and some heart-wrenching ones)
Thank you for making me cry multiple times!
