Critic's Review

Synopsis: Kathirvelan falls in love with Pavithra but there are quite a few obstacles that he has to cross before he can marry her...

Review: Kathirvelan is your average boy next door, with a loving family. He is a Hanuman devotee who doesn't want to be interested in girls. He goes to Coimbatore to patch up his sister with her husband (she has eloped top marry the guy but has returned after a minor tussle) and there, he meets Pavithra, the girl living opposite his brother-in-law's house. He, not surprisingly, falls in love with her and with the help of his friend Mayilvaganan tries to woo her. But she thinks she loves Gautham, her friend who is actually a rogue. There is also an enmity between her dad and Kathir's brother-in-law. And, then, there is Kathir's dad, who, already betrayed by his daughter, expects his son to stay true to him.

If Udhayanidhi wanted to play it safe in his debut Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, he continues in the same vein here and so, your reaction to this film, obviously, is OK OK. He is the happy-go-lucky guy who is not above going after his girl (read stalking) but is decent enough to wish her happiness even after she rejects him. And, with a plot that feels only too familiar, director Prabhakaran (who earlier directed Sundarapandian) loosely strings together scenes that are funny in parts (largely due to Santhanam's one-liners) and sentimental enough to bring in the "family audience".

The film isn't bad per se but displays very little ambition and is only mildly interesting.

Every conflict is resolved in a matter of two or three scenes — and in very convenient fashion — that nothing seems to be a serious-enough obstacle. Gautham only wants to bed Pavithra, while she has fallen in love with him, but this sub-plot gets resolved through a scene in which Kathir overhears Gautham's intentions and warns Pavithra. The long-standing enmity between Kathir's brother-in-law and Pavithra's father, which could come between their romance is resolved lightheartedly with a mimicry artist, in a cinematic manner! Even the final problem — of convincing Kathir's dad — is resolved with a couple of heavy-handed sentimental dialogues. In one scene, Santhanams exclaim how many flashbacks he will be made to suffer, and it is as is the director is telling us that he realizes these problems, and assuring us that as long as it is entertaining, we needn't bother.

It's not a new story, however nice screenplay but climax was just ended. It seems like director was confused where to stop, Songs are nice and comedy track gels with movie. So can be watched once.

Mulayam seems frustrated as humiliating defeat is looming large before his eyes. SP MLA Irfan Solanki who thrashed Kanpur doctor with the help of police is a sycophant or not? Mulayam must clarify this. even if he is not a sycophant he should be booked under the law and should be sent to jail enabling doctors of the state to call off the strike and start their service to the mankind. Mulayam must clarify whether these sycophants are responsible for the poor law and order situation in the state. If yes then why it took so much time for him to realize this fact. People are watching Mulayam & his crocodile tears will not work. Govt being run by Goonda elements.

Political parties changing friends because they believe BJP is going to win the LS elections. Waiting for the day our political leaders develop the courage to fight the elections on their individual party’s strength. Although this may be a tough call at least the real capability of each party will emerge in the process and over a period of time the voters will learn to vote differently for state and central elections. This is not that simple, I do realize, but then we need to find a way to bell this cat of coalition politics which weakens the mixed bag government from proper governing

We expected the coalition to ensure stricter and better governing, but as each partner grabbed their separate pound of flesh the mess it generated became worse and worse. There for it is time this a vial business is discontinued. Indian political parties have no agenda

When Mr. Kejriwal started a political party AAP, one of my close friends and an active social worker commented--Mr. Kejriwal is a stooge of Congress. I did not agree with him, though floating a political party against the wishes of Anna Hazare was nothing less than treachery. This gentleman began with a policy of equi-distance of both mainstream parties--Congress and BJP, criticizing them both loudly. However, with a few days, he started showing his real colours. He is now a clear ally, or I will repeat the words of my friend--stooge--of Congress and is sitting comfortably in its lap. The recent surveys clearly indicate that AAP and Mr. Arvind Kejriwal have no real following in public and the party is likely to get anywhere between one and five seats in the entire country

The true face of kejriwal is coming out. He is managing the media that is how he is getting much coverage in the media. Now the people of this country understand the dealings behind giving much coverage to kejriwal. From the very beginning of the Anna movement kejri was managing the media. Actually it was media, the live telecast that has made the ANNA satyagraha a success. But for the support of the media, he could not have registered that much success in Delhi. He has been trying to use the media for such a success in the lok sabha elections too. IT is a fact the media has been giving undue coverage to him. National channels had broad cast the live telecast of the swearing in ceremony of kejriwal and also proceedings of the assembly in the vote of confidence.

The cabinet only has one agenda at this meeting to fulfill the wishes of Rahul whatever he proposes they will dispose it and the deliberations are only for the public to swallow. Let us wait and see the outcome of this Sunday drill. The honorable President of the Country should not accept the ordinance and must leave it for the next government to take the matter. When there is only limited time before the next government to come into power, why the Election Commission is dilly-dallying announcement of the dates, restricting the present government not to venture in giving subsidies, gifts, etc to get their votes. This shows the desperation of the Congress Party. For ten years they looted the taxpayer’s money till the GDP came down and the value of the Rupee suffered. Passing these Ordnances shows that they do not want the BJP to enjoy the fruits of power after the elections.

Anna Hazare is a hypocrite and what he wants is free publicity and power. His ambition had been only to be in politics and wanted to exercise power but knew he cannot and indirectly started agitating against corruption to gain some leverage. Anna Hazare is quite jealous about the great rise of Kejriwal and now he may enter Parliament too. Anna Hazare never could dream that one day Kejriwal would become a force to reckon with. He goes to Mamataji to give his support as if she needs it badly and he is egoist to declare that he would support a person as if his support is passport to winning. Is he ignorant or fooling others all the times? After all Kejriwal is sincerely trying to remove corruption, that should be appreciated and not opposed by anyone more so by Anna Hazare who always gave an impression that he has been against corruption.

The problem with RJD and congress is that both can not transfer their votes to other constituents. So , both will be defeated except their strong hold. Now, only Mr Ram Vilash Paswan realized that RJD was not able to transfer his votes to LJP. In fact the voters are wise enough to cast their votes. Though , in many cases they are voting for their castes but now their votes are not transferable they are voting to a candidate of their caste of any political party. It is high time that Lalu be on his own in Bihar. This will also give a clear picture of the support of his own people without taking the support of the Congress. Will Lalu do it or will be betray his own people and go with the Congress. Any wrong decision taken by him will seal his fate once for all. Congress should work on its core areas instead of trying to win in this election which is not possible and should try to work on the next election after five years.

This department was given to Moily ostensibly to clear all pending file left by his predecessor before the election to pacify powerful corporates without whose help it is but impossible to fight or win any election. Moily is quite confident that he is not favoring any one and the decisions will not endanger the environment at least till the elections are over. The new minister can alway reverse the decision for that matter seems to be the view of the minister. Let us have faith in him for the time being. Without getting into political here, let’s deliberate what’s good and bad. Bhatt is right; we should allow GM foods to come into India for that matter anywhere in the world. Later on it will allow the west by dictating on the seeds which can be availed only through corporate channels. Corporate world will have the last say about which country should get how much

If politicians stop corruption then basic needs like food and electricity will become affordable. Those who do not consider the plight of poor will some day become poor and realize what it is to live that life. No one stays rich or poor forever. Karma will take its own course. What you sow is what you reap. Minister has talked something sensible and immediate need of the hour for our country. Instead UPA's stupid schemes to woo the voters, that money can be spent on such reproductive schemes which will help the people and also will give opportunities for employment. Hope our politicians understand this. At least the new Government will understand and act accordingly. Instead of blindly following the erstwhile Government's policy to hold on the chair. Public should not expect miracle. You have seen the fate of AAP. Free electricity is like cocaine. So are caste based reservations. However Farooq Abdullah has not said anything about free electricity in the Kashmir region.

It appears that Congress Party is heading to be recognized as one man party. Hurriedly convening Cabinet meetings to introduce changes as well a introducing new Legislation to honour the wishes of the young VP is all shows that democratic way of working are to be avoided. The bill introduced in the Parliament had to be withdrawn as soon as the VP termed it as rubbish is not what took place in very recent past. Advocating to respect and follow the democratic way of working just remains as words uttered but not to be followed is not at all a healthy indication for the Party as well as the Political system. It is clear that the century old Party has surrendered itself to Family Raj though deny this always. This is not at all good for the future the sooner realized is better
