Ethir Neechal, Soodhu Kavvum and Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal movies simultaneously released on Wednesday (May 1). The first two movies have garnered positive reviews and have done good business too on the opening day. Whereas, Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal was not a hyped flick, but the film boosted a well-known director and cast.
Well, has the film lived up to audience expectations? Has the month begin with a hat-trick? Continue reading below to know it... Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal is a romantic film directed by Vasanth. It is a comeback film for the director after a gap of six years. It has to be noted that Vasanth's movies have often generated curiosity for content and characterization. Even his last film, which did not keep the cash register ringing, was praised for the same. Now, he has roped in Arjun Sarja, Cheran, Vimal, Muktha Bhanu, Surveen Chawla and Lasini to play the lead roles in Moondru Per Moondru Kadal. What the film has to offer? Will it give a good break to the director?
Let's see the review... The title (Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal) of the film tells it all. The movie revolves around three couples. The three couples are: Varun (Vimal) and Lasini (Anjana), Guna (Cheran) and Mallika (Muktha Bhanu), and Harris (Arjun) and Divya (Surveen Chawla). The locations of each of their love stories vary from the Hills, the Seas and the Plain lands. The film covers three landscapes Kurinji (mountain), Marudham (agriculture fields) and Neidhal (area surrounding the sea). What is that one thing that brings all of them together is the interesting part of the story.
Once again, Vasanth excels in creating characters. Of all, Arjun Sarja walks out with a wonderful role. The actor's chemistry with Surveen Chawla works big time. Cheran's and Muktha Banu's roles are good. But Vimal struggles in the role of Varun. His expressions and body language does not compliment each other. He has failed to impress audience in an urban character. Even his co-star Lasini is a big disappointment.
However, when it comes to the story, the subject is good but the screenplay is not engaging. Vimal and Lasini's scenes in the first half turn boring after some time. Nonetheless, we can't ignore the storyline and some powerful sequences in Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal.
The lengthy of the film is a worrying factor. Had the editor mercilessly chopped unnecessary scenes, the film would have got a better look. Well, the other positive of the film is dialogues, which are excellent at parts and inspiring.
Performance wise, as said before, Arjun Sarja and Cheran comes out with flying colours. Surveen Chawla and Muktha Banu try to match up with their counterparts. Vimal and Lasini would have worked hard on their roles. Thambi Ramaih's character is praise worthy.
Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is a big highlight of the film. 'Aaha kaadhal konji pesudhe...', 'Kaadhal enthan kaadhal...' and 'Stop the paatu...' are the picks of the album. Bhojan K Dhinesh's cinematography is good, as he has perfectly captured the right moods.
Verdict: Watch Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal if you love to watch movies that have good subject.
