A worthy addition to Myna and Kumki

Prabhu Solomon's filmography is rather interesting. The first phase started off with the slightly offbeat Kannodu Kanbathellam and King. He then turned the action route with Kokki,Lee and Laadam. His current phase that started with Myna is his most successful and has him delivering hits with love at...(more)

A love story told well with good visuals, music and performance

Releasing on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the dreadful Tsunami of 2004, Prabhu Solomon has used this natural calamity as an important prop in his film Kayal. The story as evidenced in the trailer is very simple and centers around the love of a young couple. But the difference lies in the way ...(more)

Prabhu Solomon�s Kayal is a feel-good love story set against the milieu of 2004 Tsunami that struck the coast of Tamil Nadu. The film has some terrific visuals, great music and stunning climax.

Two friends are mistaken to have helped a couple elope and held captive by the girl's family. There, one of them falls in love with the servant girl.

When Aaron, the hero of Kayal is introduced, we hear in the background the song Enge En Jeevane from Uyarndha Ullam. The song is playing on the radio, which Socrates, Aaron's friend is listening to. This song not only gives Prabu Solomon an opportunity to include the mandatory Ilaiyaraaja song, but ...(more)

Visually arresting but hardly a novel plot

Director Prabhu Solomon's Tamil film, Kayal, appears like the final part of a romantic trilogy set in exquisitely verdant landscape. His earlier Mynaa and Kumki also unfolded in the rusticity of rural greenery, which provided the backdrop for unrequited love in the first case, and an open-ended clim...(more)

Kayal is compelling love story

Though director Prabhu Solomon has been in the industry since 1999, it was Myna (2010) and later Kumki (2012) that brought him widespread critical acclaim and mainstream success. Both films narrated a passionate and heart-rending tale of love set in spectacular locations never before seen on the sil...(more)
