A slice of contemporary romance

From the words of the director himself, he wanted O Kadhal Kanmani to be a reflection of the contemporary youth way of thinking and their romance. He is one of those directors who always has a vision for each film and even a single shot. In OKK, the upper-middle class and upper class youth are his protagonists.

He is not the one who adds an element which will detour from the main plot just for the sake of catering additional audience. In OKK too he stays true to his vision and his characters, which is what makes the movie special and in fact an outstanding body of work.

The casting makes the movie memorable, with the lead pairs keeping it real enabling the audience to relate with them at some point or other. There are only few movies, where the audience praise the cinematographers for their work. PC Sreeram’s work is invisible yet makes us realize that a master is behind this work. With editing, this will be a reference point for the future usage of original sound track editing practice in India. Sreekar Prasad weaves the gaming part and the songs beautifully with the narration. A R Rahman and Vairamuthu never misses the mark when it comes to Mani sir, and in OKK too they have taken the notch a bit higher.

Till now it might have been full of praise. But when a master is at work and if he is at his home turf and best form, the small lags or mistakes don’t matter. At least to fans like me. We saw the movie in a single screen theatre in the city, it seemed that audience too didn’t consider faults.

Some claim that it’s tad too westernized and futuristic. But, that is not the case as the story portrayed is very much happening in Indian metros, and will only increase in the coming years.
