Critics Review


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 progresses to a sweet climax.(more)

It Is More Than Just OK!

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 and then to surprise them with something else. This has worked big time for the movie. (more)

Fresh like a cup of coffee

The film is absolute democracy, yes for the youth, to the youth, by the youth, might be right in calling Maniratnam, AR Rahman, PC Sriram and Vairamuthu youth, for the veterans have just kicked out their sandals and sported themselves a sneakers.(more)

Go for it

The premise is simple and to Mani Ratnam's credit, he keeps the story focused and spares us of subplots. Technically OK Kanmani is superior as both AR Rahman and PC Sreeram have given their career best work for Mani Ratnam as the master craftsman himself is in tremendous form. Compared to the mediocre cinema we have been subjected to lately, O Kadhal Kanmani is definitely above a notch.(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. When it comes to the collaboration of AR Rahman and Mani, it is bound to create the musical magic. PC Sreeram�s cinematography should be lauded for capturing the right mood of the film with his color and lighting compositions.(more)

Movie Review

Filmmaker shows that his touch is in tact and he can still make a romance come alive on screen. With some help from PC Sreeram, whose gorgeous, superbly-lit frames capture the beauty of both Mumbai and the cramped quarters of the lead couple, and AR Rahman, whose hip songs and background score, keeps the scenes throbbing, Mani Ratnam has given us a romantic film for this generation.(more)
