Romantic dramas in Tamil film industry are made in different shades. In fact, there are many quotations pertaining to the universal feeling of love. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin has a famous dialogue that gives a clear description about what love it

When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No… don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away… (Iannis to Pelagia) Note: there are two versions of this quote, one from the book and a slightly different version from the movie.

The film ‘Doo’ does travel in the same line, but the main fact is that it’s a film based on ego clashes in the relationship. We had earlier seen a similar kind of theme in the film ‘Kushi’. The film had Vijay and Jyothika falling in love, but they don’t express their feelings for each other till the end.
