Ok Kanmani directed by Mani Ratnam opened to rave reviews and the viewers who watched the movie have touted it as Mani's big comeback to the romance genre.
Since the Bollywood celebrities had not got an opportunity to watch the movie, a special screening was held which saw the veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan walk in with his daughter Shwetha to watch the movie.
The 72-year-old took to his blog and wrote, "Shwetha and I get to see Mani Ratnam's new and fresh Tamil film at a trial, and it is a sweet and endearing story of love among the young. Fresh and with a sense of the changing times, in keeping with the sensibilities of this generation, it shows compassion and example with great dexterity."
The film is set in Mumbai and follows the story of a young urban couple, Aadi and Tara who decide to stay in a live-in relationship. Big B lauded the lead cast as well, "Values are not lost in the practices that this generation may desire, but sufficient understanding on both parts is beautifully portrayed by two young performers who play the lead. They are a delight to watch - the boy, Mammootty's son, Mammootty the mega star of Malayalam Cinema in Kerala and equally a sprightly love interest in his opposite number a young lady of enormous verve."
O Kadhal Kanmani has minted over Rs 14 crore at the box office worldwide in the first four days since its release on April 17. Check out the pics of the special screening held for Bollywood celebs.
