This is a gem of a movie. Takes Indian cinema few notches up in a gentle and a heart warming way. The movie is a remake of the Hindi film ‘Nil Battey Sannata’. When I was lamenting that most of the Tamil films are same old same trash, this movie is a refreshing and gentle tearjerker. Marvellous movie.
The story is about the aspirations of a poor mother for her child. With no emotional or sentimental over dose this movie is brought to life by Amal Paul, Samuthrikani and good old Revathy.
Amala Paul transforms has a poor but determined Chennai ‘Vellikari’ with a scintillating performance. She talks to your heart and reminds you of the dreams you have/had for your children when they were growing up. Rarely do I get involved to the point of tear drops welling in my eyes. Good movie and must see for all families. Specially with the children.
