After the release of ‘Dharma Durai’, it has been a much awaited expectation that Director Seenu Ramasamy will be rejuvenating our eyes once again with the romantic drama, ‘Kanne Kalaimaane’ which stars Udhayanidhi and Tamannaah as main leads. Will ‘Kanne Kalaimaane’ refresh all our souls like Seenu Ramasamy’s previous movies?


Kamala Kannan (Udhayanidhi) is a farmer who is well graduated in agriculture such that he encourages all other farmers in his place to go with organic manure and fertilizers for the crops. Not only he takes care of earthworm culturing farms but also he helps poor and needy to settle down in life by getting loans for them from 'Madurai Grama Bank'. However the poor people are well held up with basic necessities they need for living, they fail to pay due for the debts whereas the new strict branch manager, Bharathi (Tamannaah) who stays with a blind mother and a studious younger brother, misunderstands Kannan for all those loans which had not been payed on regular dues and interests then. However gradually looking the character of Kannan, Bharathi gets impressed and they both mutually fall in love with genuine maturity. Due to the differences in cultures of both of their families, their marriage gets delayed because of which Kannan adamantly stands on his desire to marry Bharathi. Finally with everyone's acceptance, they both get married happily which is continued with the objections of Kannan's grandmother (Vadivukkarasi) on Bharathi going to job even after marriage. Managing all that, the cute couple stay away from Kannan's father and grandmother with so much understanding. On the other hand, Kannan's grandmother is keen on knowing with continuous surveillance about her grandson's marriage life with an eye watch even if she doesn’t see him in person. Suddenly there comes a strange change in Kanna's behavior and getting money from a local villager. What is the reason for Kannan to get so much money from someone when he is so much well off in his family? What will happen between Kannan and Bharathi? 'Kanne Kalaimaane' opens the eyes with so much romance in the climax!


Without having a usual romance, glamour, item songs and comedy, Seenu Ramasamy has executed the very straight package of a family drama aptly with the cinematography of Jalandhar Vasan by showing the beautiful agriculture greeny fields of villages with wonderful aerial shots. However the story is not moved in the first half without entering into the main story, it seemed little slow compared to the second half. Editing of Kasi Viswanathan has been simple and neat throughout; the characterization in this drastically moving screenplay has helped in feeling the mood of the film in depth. As a regular custom with the folk songs during temple festivals and also with the background music mending apt to the scenes of the film, it seemed like Yuvan Shankar’s songs seemed bit lay down compared to previous Seenu Ramasamy’s films.


Cannot be without appreciating the performance with the natural looks of Udhayanidhi and the absolutely gorgeous Tamannaah, which has been maintained in the same meter throughout the film whereas the other actors like Vadivukkarasi as Udhay’s grandfather, Vasundhara Kashyap’s screen presence in this movie after a long time, Poo Ramu as Udhay’s father and many others has performed very well.

What works?

1) Tamannaah’s characterization

2) Cinematography and editing

What doesn’t work?

1) Slow moving first half

2) Involvement of unwanted characters in between

On the whole, ‘Kanne Kalaimaane’ is a refreshing movie conveying traditional values of family, love and companionship in life.


‘Kanne Kalaimaane’ is absolutely a descent show giving a pleasant – light feel for eyes!
