How these two get along with each other and whether their lives changes is the rest of the story.
Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum is a remake of Korean romantic drama, “My Dear Desperado.” Though a remake, Director Nalan Kumaraswamy’s execution is flawless and Vijay Sethupathy has performed well to the character. In fact I couldn’t replace any actor to this role. His casual dialogue delivery and slothful presence was natural. Madonna too was near perfect to the role, just her dubbing could have been better. Casting was perfect throughout and well balanced, not a single character was wasted. The only flaw of the film was the slow narrative which was visible throughout. Santhosh Narayanan’s songs were OK and BGM was experimental, but well supportive to the narration.Though the ending could have been better .This team deserve a round of applause for their efforts. I give it 6/10
