Sillendru Oru Kathal

A movie I have been waiting for ever since I saw the news about it. I don't want to sound like a movie columnist, so let me summarize it (espl for my non-Tamil speaking buddies) in a para. But I'm warning those who haven't watch the movie, this may be a spoiler :p read on your own risk.


Gautham (played by Surya..do i see praveen drooling? hahaha) married Kunthavi (Jothika) and the story began from that point. Fast forwarding the story 6 years later, their arranged marriage seems to have changed Kunthavi's perception that only love marriage would bring happiness. Blessed with a cute looking daughter, the marriage was the loviest thing you may find on earth :). May be until, Kunthavi find her husband's old diary describing his college life and his previous gf (wife), Aishu. Interesting to see Kunthavi tracking down Aishu and arranging them to meet for a day.

I'll stop the story here and let u be the judge how u wanna end it. Anyway, I do suggest you to listen to the songs by AR Rahman. They were awesome ;)


Whats so special and different about this movie? Its the approach to a delicate situation, i must say. What would you do when you find out about your partner's previous relationship - be it a fling, an affair, a serious relationship or in this case, a marriage? Kunthavi handled it well, with maturity. Gautham made sense with his decision in the end. But this is a movie, where we, the audience always want a perfect ending. What if its in real life? How would we react?

****

My best wishes to the newly-wed couple Surya and Jothika who tied the knot on 11th September. I guess I'm among the very few who is genuinely happy to see them together. A man who leads his lady love to marriage always wins my adoration. And I respect this man who stood by her all this years. They might not come across this post, yet I believe my wishes will reach them no matter what. God bless.

ok sounds like an interesting movie. Gotta watch it, tnxx Amu!

Surya is not in my drool-list anymore...cos he just got married lol!


**What would you do when you find out about your partner's previous relationship - be it a fling, an affair, a serious relationship or in this case, a marriage?

U mean if I didnt know abt it at all b4 reading his diary? That'd shock me at first cos I believe being married to someone means knowing most of his history b4 marriage. If he didnt tell me abt a previous serious r'ship of his, that means he's still in love with that girl or he couldn't put that phase behind him yet. That would worry me a bit. If it was a marriage that he hid from me, that would devastate me. I dunno how I'd react in that case. Perhaps I'd need days/months to find out what really happened, why he hid it from me and then come to a conclusion.


**Kunthavi handled it well, with maturity. Gautham made sense with his decision in the end.

yep cos it's a movie...it's what we WANT to see happening..not necessarily what WILL happen in reality.


**What if its in real life? How would we react?

Like I said b4, I'd need time to get over the shock of being hidden something so big from me, and then to find out what really happened. Then I'd try to u'stand his thoughts and do what's needed..what my instincts say.

Well, I did not like the movie.. I think it was too candyfloss and there was just no sense in Kunthavi behaving the way she did after reading the diary.. And why did she run all the way to Coimbatore to meet Aishu??? And wasn't the ending pretty obvious???!

yep, I heard abt that stupid story line before. Not great one at all.

Well, surya and jyothika is wonderful couple. But those marriage photos are like any other movie snaps of these couple. We had seen enough of the couple photos before...isnt it?

Ghost Particle said...

yay! the marriage is great! they looked so good...just wish she would not have stopped acting...pity.

I wont want to watch the movie in the cinemas...heard the story before and its from an english movie...but saved by Rahman and Surya.

Cheers...!
