Topsy truvy Unnale Unnale with mature ending

Sriram Iyer | April 16, 2007 21:13 IST

There is considerable audience for what could be called the Yash Raj films genre amongst the Tamil viewers and catering to them is cinematographer-director Jeeva with his slow, soft and feel good romantic flicks.

One such story is Unnale Unnale, a topsy turvy love fest starring Karthick (Vinay) and Jhansi (Sadha).

Poles apart, Jhansi's soft, introvert nature cannot stand the extrovert, flirty, take it easy Karthick, who very easily attracts the opposite sex-intentionally or otherwise. Though he loves Jhansi sincerely, she fails to look beyond his flirty exterior and walks out on him.

After the break up, Karthick is sent on deputation to Melbourne by his employer and as always he befriends a bubbly and vivacious Deepika (Tanisha) during his short flight to Melbourne. As luck would have it Deepika turns out to be Jhansi's acquaintance.

Jhansi too shifts to Melbourne for some reason. While in Melbourne, Karthick tries his best to get back with Jhansi with Deepika's help. But the story becomes complicated when Deepika, too falls in love with him.

Though the story flow is a little confusing, the film ends on a mature note.

Meanwhile, some scenes have been borrowed from popular Hindi movies with no real modifications. Humour is weak.

Performance wise, Sadha leads the way while Vinay and Tanisha are mediocre.

Editor V T Vijayan shows off his expertise with some real good transitions between shots. Costumes by Anees add to the feel of the plot.

Jeeva excels in cinematography and direction.

If you are tired of all those violent stories of Madurai and Tuticorin, you might as well take a break and watch this.
