The Story set in 1980’s opens with Jeeva (Satya) taken to court by the police. From there the story starts in the form of a flashback. Jeeva and Balaji are class XII students and very close friends. Balaji falls in love with Karthika(Miya George) who studies in the same school and a family friend . Balaji who is afraid to express his feeling to Karthika asks Jeeva to express his love to her on his behalf. But Karthika tells Jeeva that she loves him and not Balaji, thus starts their love story. When their family comes to know about their love, they are totally against it and a series of events makes both families against each other. The two decide to stop seeing each other until their exams, but Karthika’s father cleverly packs the family off to Coimbatore spreading false rumours that they have shifted to Chennai. Thus leaving Jeeva Grief-stricken . Will Jeeva meet Karthika again forms the rest of the story.
Amara Kaaviyam reminds me of the films of mid 80’s and is certainly not for the fast paced teens of this generation. The movie is extremely slow and very predictable. Satya acting is not expressive and always has a dumb look throughout the film. Miya George gives a good performance, and we can see more of her in the near future. Gibran’s music was the pick of the whole lot. Without his music the movie would have been lifeless. The movie has nothing new to the audience thus ends up boring. it give it 3/10
