Follow your heart and believe
Follow your Heart. I got to know about the tagline after watching the movie. When you have the director doing what the tagline refers to then there is nothing that can go wrong! The story revolves around Karthik (Dhanush) whose passion is photography. He is blatant, weird, and jobless. He has a group of friends. In comes Yamini (Richa) who is dating one of his friends. Things get complicated when she connects with Karthik. Their tumultuous journey forms the rest of the movie. The movie moves at its own pace. It touches on many basic aspects of life in a subtle manner. Dhanush has done an exceptional job. Richa outshines Dhanush by miles. She is a revelation. The only thing that was a downer was the BGM which was so out of place in many of the sequences. Selvaraghavan never makes an attempt to connect with the audience. He has made a movie which will please him at the end of the day. And those are the products which will have the best quality. This movie is not a crowd-pleaser. Watch it alone or when the cinemas are empty. Else you will have a lot of boos and whistles distracting you.
I can say proudly that there is a tamil version of Lynch or Kubrik now. Just follow your heart and believe.
