Aadhalal Kaadhal Seiveer (AKS) is a love story of youths, their sufferings when things go wrong in their love and its impact on their respective families.
The movie deals with the story of college student Karthik (Santosh), a cool dude, who he falls in love with Shwetha (Manisha Yadav). Things turn worse in the love story when they involve in careless dating.
Suseenthiran, who has directed village based drama like, Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu and Azhagarsamiyin Kuthirai is back with his favourite theme love. He has handled the film bravely without compromising on the message it sets out to deliver to the audiences.
The plot deals with the ups and downs of the love in the student life, and how the present day youths fool their parents is the plus point of the movie. But, the portrayal of love and youth carelessly dating scenes lack the credibility.
AKS doesn't present a chauvinistic view of the issue, but highlights how carelessly youngsters take decisions in life without even an iota of guilt or responsibility. It also presents a viewpoint of the elders.
To top it all, AKS has a very powerful and unexpected climax to send us back home with a heavy heart. This is only to remind us about the harsh realities of our society and how we have been living amidst all this.

Santosh Ramesh Performance
A debutant actor has done a pretty good job, he has adapted all the quality of the present day youths to his role Karthik. His acting will be impressive when he handles the situation, when his careless dating takes a different turn.
Manisha Yadav Performance
When compared to Santosh, Manisha's acting is impressive. She has improved a lot from her debut Vazhakku Enn 18/9. Her acting becomes notable especially when she fools her parents.
Versatile actor Jayaprakash and Thulasi as Manisha's parents portray a very polished and emotional performance. Their scenes in the second half weave a strong emotional bond with audiences. Arjun as the lead pair's friend ensures some laughs even in the most serious scenes.
Breaking away from the aforementioned outlook, director Suseenthiran crafts an intelligent and bold story about hormone-driven teenage romance. He makes us look at a domestic issue through the young eyes of his protagonists who stand testimonial to modern-day generation.
Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is a bonus, while editing by Anthony is definitely a blessing. With most Tamil films clocking nearly three hours, to make a film that addresses a domestic problem with unparalleled compassion in less than two hours is an achievement.
The movie talks about the irresponsible approach of youths towards love. AKS is a complete family entertainer with a message for parents and youths.
