Before read this review kindly make sure that we are not the legend to questioning about Mani Rathnam Sir’s work .But as a common man we notified what are the place movie needs to improved and fails to attract the common audiences.
Manirathnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai is all about battle/war between two complicated hearts.
The backdrop of the story set on 1999, where the Kaargil war happened between India Vs Pakistan.The movie starts with that Kaargil war,in that our hero Varun – VC (Karthi) who was an Air force officer got being captured by the Pakistan’s army.they put him into the jail which located in Rawalpindi -Pakistan.From there camera rolls on to the hero’s poetic flashback love story.
Our Hero VC is a self-egoistic person who always respect only him and his thoughts, where our heroine doesn’t like that kind of female chauvinist persons.After a severe accident recovery from VC which is treatment done by Leela (Aditi). Meanwhile those polar opposites persons fall in love madly.At one point of time VC felt that he can’t able to continue his relationship with Dr.Leela .Finally what will happen was rest crux of this complicated story
Karthi : on the whole director Manirathnam sir makes his understood that exact scale of the role like where he need to overrule others , where and all he needs to be polite in harmful way. He delivers exactly what director narrates.At last after a long time he transforms his look particularly for this movie which suits him well.
Aditi Rao Hydri : In a recent past 5 years lots of Bollywood heroines who were fails to attracted audiences, where this Aditi doesn’t. She’s look fresh and charming.she carried her character very well and delivers perfectly to the main screen.
Director ManiRathnam : The person who knows the emotions,love,pain, of current generation’s people and carries the movie with his own capable technicalities crew in a mind blowing lushly execution.He is the legend of that making.even-though the story was not much great and close to the heart but the way he carries and executed was the matter.But that’s not need for s common man / young couple.
AR.Rahman : when we seen the performances it’s Very tough to justify him.There is a famous quote called “Make it simple but significant “. From the songs to Bgm everything were well matched to the situations.
Ravi Varman : As per the ManiRathnam’s script cinematography was the another hero who exactly carries entire movie on his shoulder.After Villu movie Ravi varman sir back to tamil.First and foremost kudos to Ravi Varman sir for his brilliant work.
*Whatever the Story seems to be narrate better but the way Mani sir executed well.
*Very weak script and slow screenplay.
Delight Rating : 2/5
Delight Punch : Unexpected rating for this unconditional Love
