Meendum Oru Kadhal Kadhai is a light-hearted entertainer, in which a Hindu boy, played by Walter Phillips, falls in love with a muslim girl (Isha Talwar).
While Isha has reprised her role from the original to perfection, Walter Phillips' act looks natural, which is a surprise from an actor who is doing his first film as the lead. Cinematography by Vishnu Sharma is decent enough. Having said that, one might think that he could've used his angles in a much more constructive way.
Overall View: Though not as good as the original, Meendum Oru Kadhal Kadhai makes for a decent one time watch.
With a story that we are quite accustomed to, the director has tried to add a few fresh sparks that would make it breezy. There are a handful of these moments here and there :- like the references to the Hindu-Muslim unity that are reflected through various scenes. But barring these, other instances have a melodramatic shade to it.
The visuals are splendid. Vishnu Sharma lets his skill speak through his lenses and it definitely deserves special mention. Painting a vivid picture, the visuals carry a pleasant feel.
Verdict: A decent love story that lacked depth
