The story of a guy gifted to become the great Karnatic singer, almost loses it after falling in love with a girl(Yamuna). Things get more complicated as the girl he is love is 10 years elder to him and also born to the Brahmin father and Marathi Mother (The illegitimate second wife).Or is it more a lust than love towards her...

The good thing about the story is that the antagonist is the society we live in. Not the Village head... or some rich village guy who is often the villain in many of these kind of movies... instead its how we as a society would look at them. Whether we would accept them as part of us without any second thought...??

Apart from that, the movie doesn’t offer much. The cast: Abhishek; Archana; Joglekh; Nedumudi Venu; Vivek, and directed by Ghana Rajasekaran doesn’t ring any bell. None of them are able to exert any influence on the character in what should have been an emotional ride. The emotions just don’t get across. Many a times you feel like watching a TV serial than a movie. The story was lagging during the initial stages with most the time spent on looking for a groom for Yamuna. The story is much suited for short movie than a full pledged movie. The love between Abhishek and Yamuna was also not conveyed properly and also why is he in love with her except in a scene where he says that he grew up more with her than his mother. But a more convincing answer is that it is more lust towards her than love... as she says so in the final dialogue...

Music by Ilayaraja, and sung by Jesudas and Janaki (whom I could recognize from their voices) are all purely Karnatic of which I know little about to review/ comment about it. But unlike Sindhu Bairavi... it didn’t appeal to casual listener and commoner like me...

the book " mogamul " is really a treasure...but it could not be understood.....by many peoples...moreover ...the author...might have experienced this in kumbakonam ...such a fantastic describing of kumbakonam environment....like cauvery river,tank,kmu roads..everything..like the author no one could understand the relationship/feeling between yamuna & babu...its really a unique relation between them...as u like this can be excellent if they make in short film than a movie............hope babu & yamuna charecters are real.....it will remain always ...in some hearts...
