Seenu Ramasamy's Kanne Kalaimaane does not have many cliche scenes. However, there is still something in the script which makes the movie falls apart.

Kanne Kalaimaane

Director: Seenu Ramasamy
Cast: Tamannaah Bhatia, Udhayanidhi Stalin, Vadivukkarasi, Vasundhara Kashyap
Rating: 2.5/5

Seenu Ramasamy's Kanne Kalainmaane has several good pieces. In the wedding scene, Bharathi (Tamannaah Bhatia) refuses to sit on the floor and later sits on the bench instead. It is such a revolution because other brides in Tamil movies usually sit on the floor with reverent gestures, such as legs folded or tucked under their thighs. Bharathi does not follow that tradition.

Seenu Ramasamy also puts in the movie another new thing. At the main couple's first night, they prefer a good sleep rather than those cliche intimate scenes. Kamalakannan (Udhayanidhi Stalin) goes to the bedroom seeing that Bharathi already falls asleep. He smiles and let his wife rest without disturbing her even once.

Bharathi is also not a cliche girl who is attractive but too naive. In contrast to other Tamil "loosu ponnu", she has a strong personality. She works as a bank manager, being independent, decisive and fiery. She prefers no make-up, even on her special wedding day. Actress Tamannaah Bhatia has a brilliant performance, and it is undoubtedly one of her best roles after Dharmadurai.

At first, the movie seems to be an ordinary love story between a modern girl and a village guy. However, it turns out to be more topical. Seenu mentions a bit in everything, from farmer suicides, loans to those political issues. That's how the movie starts to be dull. It is necessary for a film to be relevant, but addressing the matter only through conversation is a little bit boring. The director also makes it up with the chemistry between Kamalakannan and Bharathi, but it is not enough.


There is a good thing and also the bad thing about Kanne Kalaimaane: Every character seems to be unreal. Kamalakannan is such a well-behaved son and husband. He is just too good to be true. Even when his father tells him to stop talking with Bharathi, he follows his command. Appaththaa seems to be a villain at the beginning, but then "bad girl gone good" at the end of the movie. The movie has no conflicts, and when you are expecting for more, it ends unexpectedly.

Kanne Kalaimaane builds up people's expectations at first but then let them down towards the ending. It does not have a powerful script which is Seenu Ramasamy's strong point in other movies.
