Maniratnam Oh Kadhal Kanmani Review – Technical Great Story Worst


O Kadhal Kanmani is a light-hearted Tamil romantic drama written and directed by Mani Ratnam. Produced by Mani’s own production house Madras Talkies, O Kadhal Kanmani (also known as OK Kanmani), is a convincing story beautifully told by actors who happen to completely morph into the roles they get to play.

Starring Malayalam actors Nithya Menon (playing Tara) and Dulquer Salmaan (playing Aadi), OK Kanmani features Prakash Raj, Prabhu Lakshman, Leela Samson, Ramya Subramaniam, B.V. Doshi (in a cameo) , and Kanika (in another cameo). Cinematography has been done by P. C. Sreeram and editing has been handled by A. Sreekar Prasad. Music has been composed by the brilliant A. R. Rahman and song lyrics have been penned by Vairamuthu.

The narrative of OK Kanmani is able to connect with the viewers, courtesy its poignantly romantic moments and beautifully emotional scenes that make it hard for the audience to blink back tears. Have this not always been the highlights of movies made by the evergreen ace director Mani Ratnam? Combined with soul-stirring music and poetic cinematography, the entire package of OK Kanmani fulfills expectations and goes beyond.

Exploring the institution named “marriage” and weighing its relevance in the present-day society, OK Kanmani, with its old and acclaimed team of Mani, Sreeram, Rahman, and Vairamuthu, wins hearts. The urban youth, Aadi, is played perfectly by Dulquer while Nithya, not portrayed as just another glamorous girl, oozes a refreshing individuality. She is thus successful in giving life to Tara who also has a mind of her own. The character played by Leela Samson is a veteran Carnatic singer which is why there is an unmistakable Carnatic flavor throughout the film’s music that blends the past with the present. The original soundtrack which is trendy and modern goes excellently well with the modern-Mumbai setting that the movie has.

Overall, the eagerly-awaited O Kadhal Kanmani is a heartwarming and enjoyable romantic treat from Mani Ratnam.

  1. The reason am refraining myself from sharing my views on #OkKanmani is
    because I fear I will be too biased in pouring laurels on this one. Still,
    to keep it short, go for it without second thoughts, you will either love
    it or get a culture shock, either way you just cant ignore the buzz that
    this movie is creating. #ManiRatnam, please keep doing more such movies.
    You set the golden benchmark which can only be super-seeded by your own
    products in future. #ARRahman​ , no matter how many young talent shoot up,
    you time and again prove that you own the throne. #Dulquer Salmaan​ you
    have made your dad proud. #MadrasTalkies​ : Yes I will share my review, I
    paid for the ticket.

  2. Bosskey….why do you share the story all the time!! Man you got to put
    spoiler alert in your reviews to alert the viewers…Pls pls do that!!!

    The search sequence in the second half was dragging but it was a very
    important part of the movie as Aadi and Tara discus their future while
    searching. That was sheer brilliance of Mani and only he can think about it
    that way!! This is a fantastic movie on par with Alaipayuthe!

  3. Like only a Mani can story the way it has to be told, only a Bosskey can do
    a review the way it has to be reviewed and make even Mani wonder if OKK is
    ok or not ok. Congrats bosskey for reviewing a movie and not narrating a
    story. You may have run out out of floral half sleeve shirts but you never
    run out of words! Keep up the good work.

  4. And, here is the review of ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ by Bosskey. Do you agree with
    his review? Let us know in the comments below!

  5. I plead with you to stop reviewing movies. You are incompetent for this
    job. I have been observing for some time of your reviews and it seems you
    are on someone’s pay or you are clueless what good cinema is. Though we
    have been living in Los Angeles for more than 24 years, we are still ardent
    fans of Tamil movies. I also humbly request from fans not to read his
    reviews. This Bosskey is a real Komail.

  6. Super opinion bosskey … Covers on screen as well as off screen .. Off
    screen is always important for Tamil audience ..
    

  7. From the review i understand this movie is alaipayuthe+notebook+titanic. i
    kinda want to know how mani ratnam has adapted it tho.

  8. vry great superb movie this idiot spoil it………..dont watch this
