Where did you watch this movie?

Incisively probing into radically modern perspectives about commitment in romantic relationships, this contemporary romantic drama revolves around two open minded youngsters – Adithya, a video game programmer and Tara, a passionate architect. When serendipitous circumstances bring Adithya and Tara together they decide to take a bold step and embark upon a live-in relationship, with no long-term commitment or strings attached. Adithya, who is from a traditional family has found paying guest accommodation in a household where in middle-aged couple reside. How will the young couple's radical relationship be viewed by the middle-aged couple? The crux of the tale insightfully depicts the evolving relationship between Adithya and Tara, perhaps highlighting why the institution of marriage has stood the test of time.

ஒ காதல் கண்மணி " நீண்ட நாட்களுக்கு பிறகு ஒரு அருமையான காதல் கதை "
on

Manirathanam touched the love genre after 14 years (alaipayuthey). at that time i cant understand the feeling of love, but now i watched OKK with my wife and enjoyed a lot by his making.

the major things to be reviewed

1. PC.Sriram's camera - awesome, the man who always shoot the scene in natural light
2. Mani's Dialogues. the romantic dialogues by dulkar and nithya.
3. dulkar and nithyas performance is awwwwwwwwwesome
4.Rehman's music- he serves to mani specially
5. prakash raj and his spouse performance is sooooooo good

totaly ஒ காதல் கண்மணி is ஓஹோ காதல் கண்மணி..............

when we came out from theatre i called my wife as கண்மணி and she called me as கண்ணா

this is victory of manirathnam , hats off u sir

regards

giri

OK Kanmani - NOT OK MANI, Not ok!!

Although it's a good romance movie, I would personally slaughter people who say "live-in relationships is the new thing" Breaking news - live in relationships are in fact a very old thing, I believe it was news when the great padmashree Kamal Hasan and Sarita moved in with each other in the 90's.
And the repetition, what's with the repetition of the scenes? The bus(ayudha ezhithu), the train(A.E, alaipayudhe), the cliched mirror scene(Meera jasmine and Maddy from A.E) It feels like they've used their own work as references and hoped that the dumb audience wouldn't notice. Mistake me not, it's not a bad story or bad direction or a bad screenplay, but it kills me to see someone as great as Mani Rathnam stooping down to the level of Gautam Menon just to show that he can do better romance movies than G.M

Dulqur and Nithya had played their part aptly, in fact all the actors have. Except the guy who kept calling everyone "buddy". Intervention happening here - the only people who call each other "buddy" are the people in KFC and that too, because they're paid to do so!
We have seen it all, we've seen all the permutations and combinations of romance stories in India. Whatever happened to the director who made movies like Kannathil Mutham ittal, Iruvar, Etc. Find that guy and bring him back, that guy was a legend!
