The two best disciples of Sivadas Swamigal, the earnest owner of a Drama school, are by design pitted against each other by the guru himself and this create multiple calamities ending in the duo's separation. Years pass by as one finds a good holding and the other wobbles away as a drunk loser only for them to cross paths again when the ongoing Indian Independence Movement gives another chance for the tables to turn! —PipingHotViews
Kaviyathalaivan - A Very different kinda movie!! The storyline is not the usual romance based type! Hats off to Vasanthabalan for trying this...! It is like a modern version of an art film! The story is about Koothu- actors/dancers in pre-independence era. Nassar is the lead of a Koothu team. Prithviraj and Sidharth join in at a very young age! Sidharth by virtue of better acting abilities and Out-Of-The-Box-Thinking gets the lead roles and the girls! Prithviraj is jealous... The story revolves around their lives and emotions... HATS OFF TO SIDHARTH! I loved his expressions! I am not sure if he learnt classical dance for the grace in his dance moves. It would have been a treat had Sidharth also acted one role as a female character (As a part of the Koothu shows)! Prithviraj had done a decent job! But Sidharth stole the show!! & Vedhicka (Ganakokilam Vadivambal) had also danced very well... I was hoping for a better role for Kuyili... She could have been used as a Koothu dancer too!! A.R.Rahman could not have made the background scores any better... The music just perfectly suited the movie in every way!! The movie could have have been slightly shorter... But I have no cribs about that!! I rate this movie 3.5 out of 5 but recommend it as a movie worth watching!!
