The most expected film of the summer OK Kanmani released this week. This film also marks the return of much awaited unification of PC Sreeram and Mani Rathinam . Aadhi (Dulquer Salmaan) Tara (Nithya Menen) are two liberal new age youngsters who come Mumbai to follow their dreams. They both are drawn together when they find their ideology of love and marriage match. Both decide to live-in together their remaining days in Mumbai as they have ambitions to go abroad . As the day’s close in their love blossoms, whether they really come to know the difference meaning of love and togetherness forms the rest of the story.
A love story for the new generation with a well chosen cast is presented in the form OK Kanmani. The story even though very predictable has its moments thru a well coordinated screen play.The director brings in this old couple played flawlessly by Prakash Raj and Leela Samson who actually interpret what true love is all about . Dulquer Salmaan plays this next door boy with ease and also handles intense scenes with a lot of gravity,and Nithya Menen proves that she is the actress to look for when you need genuine performer.she plays the pivotal role in the whole movie. This whole film is gift wrapped to us by PC Sreeram, Every frame is been painted and crafted to perfection. I wasn’t too sure of the songs when I heard but by the way it was visualised the songs where given a new life. The main flaw is the film was a little slow towards the end and romance scenes were too fast and never enough time to get engrossed in them. Welcome back Mr.Mani Rathinam with this new age love story. I give it 7/10
Raghavendra Lawrence choreographer, actor and director comes back with the 2nd installment of his super hit Kaanchana . The story continues from the last movie as Raghava (Lawrence) still in fear of darkness, ghosts and clings on his mothers hip whenever he is scared. He is called by his superior where he works as a cameraman in a tv channel to do a show on ghosts to rise the TRP of their channel. He disagrees first but later agrees to join the crew when he comes to know Nandhitha (Taapsee) is leading the show.They choose an abandoned old house near the coast to shoot the show. While shooting on the beach they Nandhitha finds a Thaali buried in the sand, suddenly the weather changes and they are threatened by a storm and they hurry back to their guest house. A series of events happens in the guest house showing a paranormal presence by which crew is tormented. Nandhitha soon finds out that these events began soon after they come into the possession of the Thaali. And she comes to know that it belongs to a distressed soul. What happens next and how they affected buy this forms the rest of the story.
Even though the story is predictable and the cast is very similar to the last film, the entertainment level never reduces . A pure blend of horror and comedy keeps the first half fully engaged. The second half is dominated by the ladies, Taapsee, Kovai Sarala and Nithya Menon who give wonderful performance. Lawrence timing and performance in comedy and horror scenes is good and brings a wave of cheer in the theatre. Songs are a big let down and doesn’t register at all. 2nd half runs at very slow pace and the climax stunts is not well choreographed. Nevertheless the movie is a complete entertainer for all ages and leaves everyone satisfied as they leave the theatre. I give it 5/10
