Starring the late SP Balasubramanyam in the lead role, it is a story of a father and a daughter that hits you in your emotional core when you watch it. The movie is also known for its popular song, Mannil Indha, that is frequently listened to on loop even today by many. SPB rendered it in a single breath. Several deep emotions are hidden in the song that is uncovered when you watch the movie. This movie motivates people by saying that second chances at happiness do exist.

It is one of the earliest movies of Ajith Kumar in a full-on chocolate-boy avatar before he became the ultimate Thala of Kollywood. It has a gripping story and talks about the extremes a man would go to get a girl. The visual aesthetics of every song in the movie are extraordinary. The movie can be watched for its nail-biting plotline, its romance and for the songs, all executed brilliantly by Vasanth.

The movie is considered to be the first movie that had Vijay and Suriya in lead roles. If you want to see a movie that has a complicated family drama with extensive tension in the room, this movie is a perfect recommendation. Director Vasanth, like his previous movies, also manages to take this one in a visually appealing manner. You rarely get to see the romance he creates on-screen these days. You can watch this movie if you want to see a happy ending for a complicated family and also for its soundtrack and the entertainment value.

It is the first movie that featured real-life couple Suriya and Jyotika on-screen in a rom-com musical drama. The movie became a hit among the youth audience and the actors’ pairing on-screen was appreciated a lot. If you like to see a feel-good musical love story all rolled into one, this movie would be right for you.

The film is known to have combined all the five elements of nature in its soundtrack with mind-blowing lyrics. Who better can compose such an outstanding soundtrack than the Isai Puyal himself? This feel-good romantic musical, which has Arjun in the lead, was AR Rahman’s first collaboration with the director.

A psychological thriller based on true incidents, the movie is one of the finest by the director. It’s filmed in an authentic manner where the antagonist’s personality gives you the chills, because you realise that people like him exist in reality. Like in every Vasanth movie, the tunes in this film too are melodic and pleasant to the ears. This movie deserves a thumbs-up for the actors’ performances, bone-chilling storyline and soundtrack.
