First Half is just okay, Second Half is double okay !

ManiRatnam spends a lot of time to establish predictable characters through uneventful scenes. The intermission is a saving grace to a snail-paced first half.The second half is when Mani Ratnam gains his form and starts middling the ball. The scenes steadily gain purpose and traction as the movie pr...(more)

Something special for all young people out there.

Mani Ratnam challenges all new age directors out there if they can be as romantic as him, and A.R.Rahman, forget it, is there anything else left for him to challenge. Mani seems to be clear in one thing from the word go in OK Kanmani - to tease his audience by setting up scenes of possible cliches a...(more)

Fresh like a cup of coffee

Go for it

The premise is simple and to Mani Ratnam's credit, he keeps the story focused and spares us of subplots.

Compared to the medioc...(more)

Mani Ratnam is back with a bang

Mani Ratnam is back with a bang with a feel good complete romantic movie O Kadhal Kanmani. Mani Ratnam�s simple yet powerful dialogues are a major plus which would go well with today�s youth.

Arun Sundar

It is an emotional film and an interesting take on live in relationships. On multiple watching and analysis, the screenplay doesn't feel as strong compared to his previous films like Mounaragam, Alaipayuthe. (more)

Ragavendra Raja

Oh Kaadhal Kanmani - Review by Rsquared Mani sir always be a trendsetter with brand new thinking. His movies create a new buzz among young generations. Mouna raagam deals with divorce in 80s. Alaipaayuthye deals with youngster's selfish love in 2000. Now, OK Kanmani deals another daring subject wh... (more)

Unnikrishnan R Kinaruvilayil

Filmmaker knows very well about the pulse of audience, made this wonderful love journey with limited number of passengers. No dramatic, No exaggeration on screenplay, Music fits to the situation and tunes as usual, AR Rahman's tunes melts our heart (especially - Malargal Kettean by K.S. Chithra), PC... (more)
