Ullam Ketkume!

I like most of the movies i watch..i am not exactly your movie critic....beacuse of that one Reason..
the only movies i hate would fall into the following categories:

  • The mythological amman movies
  • The mother sentiment movies
  • The crass comedy movies

That apart i would classify any movie as okay....

After a long time, I went to theatre to watch a movie...Ullam Ketkume..and only because i couldn't get tickets to Anniyan....but am sure i liked the movie

Reasons you should watch this movie:

  • Great Back-ground music
  • Great songs
  • Well etched out characters
  • No melodrama
  • Takes you back to your college days.
  • A realistic look at college life, considering that this is a tamil movie
  • For once, the guy with those huge glasses isn't a geek....(how i hate those cliches related to specs.........!!!!)

And of course....

  • The students are never shown studying.....or in the classroom...(well....even i didn't study during college..but at least i was in the classroom for a major portion...)
  • Resemblence between laila's character and kajol's in KKHH........but i liked laila's more...

To just sum it up, Ullam ketkume was a wonderful experience..i had a nice time....

Total expense: Rs.75 (for auto) + Rs.50 (ticket) + Rs.10 (corn puff)......

Outcome: The theatre experience..... and a feel good film

I plan to catch this after the (original) VCD is out. I started liking the songs when the audio was launched more than a year ago.

It ought to be called 'Ullam Ketkume NO more' - I thought that this movie lacked taut screenplay. Asin was cute though. Shyam should definitely start looking at other professions :|
