Ravi Varman is one of the talented cinematographer of Indian cinema, Anniyan , barfi are some of his famous works.



Kaatru veliyidai – “Beautiful” i would like to use this word to describe this movie. Love , Srinagar , air force , himalayam , snow falls – these things made the film really beautiful and It is so nice to watch this on big screen.
Mani Ratnam’s magic happened again with this film like always and the cinematography – ‘wow’ no other words to describe choreographer Ravi Varman’s work for this movie.
AR Rahman’s music is another big factor, AR Rahman – Mani Ratnam combo gave us many big hit movies and he gave one of the best romantic entertainer to tamil film industry like all their other movies.

Lets talk about direction first, Like all of his works Mani Ratnam followed the same pattern for this movie too. Love between an air force officer Varun- karthi and a doctor Leela – Aditi Rao is the basic theme of this movie. It was a good direction and the script too.
He could show the feel of love in screen with the scripting and direction.

Ravi Varman’s camera work is the another biggest pro. of this film, all shots were really perfect especially the intro scene of Aditi Rai hydari , eye opening scene of Karthi in the hospital – he just nailed those scenes. I think it is one of the best cinematography happened in tamil film industry recent times.

AR rahman’s music is the next pro, there are about 3 main tracks in this film and he did his job really well.
Karthi featured in the title role of this film as an Air force officer Varun aka VC , he did the best with this character and i think it is his career best.
After a long period of time Aditya Rao Hydari made a big comeback to tamil industry with the role of a doctor Leela. She is looking so cute and her performance is just adorable.
RJ Balaji also featured in a good role in this movie, no over comedy dialogues – no over acts but he could make smile on the face of viewers with his dialogue delivery.

Cons :

  • Escaping from pakistan – afgan border not feeling so logical
  • chase scene – not so logical


It is a romantic drama entertainer, you will definitely love this if you like romantic movies.
It is all about some incidents happening in a guys life , his ‘love’ and do not expect a big story.
Good choreography , good music treat , good acting and a perfect script, it can make you happy for sure.

I recommend you to watch this movie with friends , family or with your girlfriend/ boyfriend :p

Rating : 3/5
