Movie Review - Aadhavan

*No spoilers*

I caught up with Aadhavan over the weekend with my parents. When we found that every other movie that we were planning to see had no tickets available finally we zeroed in on this one.

With all the rave reviews I recieved from almost everyone whose seen this movie I was a little skeptical but I was pretty much sure that I wouldn' be disappointed with Surya (one of my favourite actors) playing the lead.

Surya as usual was at his best and so was Vadivel. The other actors did a good job too. The one other factor that I was totally excited about was that, one song sequence from Aadhavan was shot in my college campus.

(The rain sequence in this song was shot in my college) :)



The picturisation of all the songs were beutifully done.


The movie was a very good entertainer and my whole family liked it. You can surely watch it once, but I didn't really mind watching it the second time :)

to be frank, i think it is one of the worst movies i've seen in two decades of my existence, and seriously speaking, i think surya needs to get a life, I was disappointed, to say the least, disappointment is such an understatement there!
