“Sometimes in life instead of telling 1000 lies around , all you need to have is the strength to walk up to a person and tell the truth !”. Aandavan Kattalai – What a lovely movie ! What a great story to pass on an important message !
I got late to watch this movie because Bangalore theaters did not screen Tamil movies during that period of Cauvery issue. But it was worth the wait. This movie reminded me a lot of the scenes from Kamal Haasan or Mohanlal classics in 80s and 90s where the comedy is not loud or slapstick but subtle and derived from the situations, clever dialogues and performances of the actors.
Ritika is a gifted actress and she shared great chemistry with Vijay Sethupathi. As for Vijay Sethupathi, even the slightest gesture or the slightest movement in his face evokes laughs. He is beautifully restrained in the movie’s emotional scenes too. This should be his best work till date. Tamil Cinema is lucky to have this one immensely talented actor who does not bear the weight of any mass image or stardom . He could be part of such simple movies with no extra gimmicks and just exactly be the characters that he needs to be.
