At last, watched this movie on Sunday (day before yesterday) with Mani. This movie had very good reviews from the media. Anyway, I am not going to review this movie. Just wanted to write my opinion.
Great Job by Cheran to take movie of “Life history of a family – parents and two sons” that runs for 3 hours and 15 minutes with minimal love/romance, no fights and no comedy – and to make the audience sit in the theatre.
Very few movies makes my eyes wet. It is one such great movie. First half itself made me feel so much :)). The second half was also so monotonous that I switched from feelings mode to analyzing mode. I can’t feel for 3 hrs continuously! That was the only problem I found with this movie.
Some things like hero’s father insisting on “keeping old fashioned name for his grand-daughter” and mother asking why “halwa only for your wife – don’t we have mouth” are debatable….
It’s a very good movie, don’t miss it.
