Just a quick warning if you have watched the trailer. Vijay Sethupathi’s role in this movie is sort of a cameo/supporting role despite him being shown throughout the trailer. The good thing is that the director placed his cameo scenes throughout the movie and not just at one part and it works exceptionally well.
Oh My Kadavule is a fun, romantic movie that keeps you engaged throughout. You can truly feel the chemistry between Ashok Selvan and Ritika Singh (especially in the second half of the movie).
There is never really a dull moment throughout the film and that was a surprise considering how many Indian movies these days end with a ridiculous lengthy fight sequence that brings the whole movie to an anti-climax. The soundtrack by Leon James goes well with the movie but I could not find any outstanding songs. Perhaps, Sid Sriram’s Kadhaippoma would be a decent pick. The scene with the motorbike reminded me a lot of the Simbu solo travel in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa.
If you are looking for a nice feel good movie to wind down after a tiring day or just want something light and easy to watch, then Oh My Kadavule is the perfect movie for you. Definitely a good directorial debut for Ashwath Marimuthu and hope we can see more great movies from him.
