No doubt Surya is my ultimate Kollywood crush. I'm such a fangirl now because I'm making it a mission to see all his films. Don't be surprise that I enjoy films with him and his real-life wife, Jyothika. I adore them so much. They bring the best out of each other.
Could someone help me out and tell me what Uyirile Kalanthathu means? Thanks in advance.
Thanks to anonymous! Uyirile Kalanthathu means "mixed life"
Raghu used to be the only son. He was his parents' world.
That was until his brother, Surya was born. Since Surya was the youngest, the parents turn their focus more towards him, making Raghu very jealous.
Raghu (Raghuvaran - RIP! Thanks Kiran for the info) grows up being jealous of his younger brother. He feels that his parents love Surya more than him and hate Surya for that. After many years, he starts to hate Surya so much that he tries to hurt Surya physically and emotionally.
Surya is the apple of his parents' eyes. But his older brother is very jealous of him. Surya is too kind-hearted to even think anything negative of his brother. He and Priya are deeply in love with each other.
What's funny is that I know that if I was to see Surya in this look now, I may not have been head-over-heels for him because I like his look now. But still find him adorable in his earlier films.
I *heart* Surya ;P
This man is soooo talented, good-looking, a great family man and husband. What more can you ask for?
Priya (Jyothika) is the sister of a big-time rowdy and is in love with Surya.
Jyothika is so cute. Her playful moments with Surya on-screen reminds me when my hubby teases me. So real. So much chemistry. No wonder these two married in real life and are doing well.
Shivah, Priya's brother. Even though he's a rowdy, he loves his sister so much, showing off the softer side of him.
Raghu & Surya's father. Did you know he is Surya's father in real life? Mutham Sivakumar.

Even though I read the soundtrack did very well, I felt a few songs could have been removed. It wouldn't have effected the storyline at all.
Song #1 - "Sanjaandu Sanjaandu"
Family of four together
Song #2 - "Martina"
Surya teasing Priya
Song #3 - "Deva Deva"
Surya & Priya in love
Song #4 - "Hussaine Hussaine"
Priya misses Surya
Song #5 - "Uyire Uyire"
Priya love Surya so much
Song #6 - "Kulukki Vacha"
Rowdies having fun
I spy a Preity Zinta life-size cardboard thingie - I am sure it's from Kya Kehna.
Overall, the movie has a lot of great moments.
Is it a good movie? Yes. Would I watch it again. Probably, but only for the Surya & Jyothika scenes.
Definitely, it's not one that I can watch over and over, claiming it's one of the best. The film is definitely worth it for the performances. I felt it was a little too long.
Yes, it could be a hit or miss. If you watch the film for either Surya & Jyothika, then you won't be disappointed :)
I am still on a mission to see all of Surya & Jyothika films
