Favorite Tamil Cinema Romances - II

Vaali – Ajith, Simran (& Jyothika)

S.J.Surya, in his first film as director, gave us a wonderfully fresh romance track in Vaali. Though it begins with Ajith predictably falling in love at first sight, Simran’s wish that her lover be “a smoker who has quit smoking, a drinker who has stopped drinking and a jilted lover” helps the track proceed in a unique fashion. Ajith’s narration of his love story with a fictional woman is brought to life with Jyothika’s help and some nice touches(like the changing dress colors when they are jogging) make it a very imaginative segment.

The characters and the actors do complete justice to the romance. Simran is loveably naive as she eats up every word that Ajith throws at her and falls for him in the process. Ajith does the cute loverboy role to perfection. One particular sequence where the two talk on the phone(she speaks in a barely disguised voice, he acts as though he falls for it, she is proud) is absolutely hilarious.

#1 had better be Karthik-Revathi in 'Mouna Raagam'

Yup.. Mouna Raagam is what I'm thinking too!.. What else could it be?.. Unless it is Bombay.. or Alaipayuthae.. the only two other romances that actually came close to MR (remotely, that is! :-)

Sandya, even Roja is better than Bombay or Alaipayuthe, wouldn't you say?
