Aadi(Dulquer Salmaan) and Tara(Nithya Menon) are two young corporate employees who live in Mumbai. They lead a posh life style and are not interested in the concept of marriage.One fine day, they cross paths and get going instantly. Very soon, their friendship turns into a live in relation and the couple spend some happy times together.Twist in the tale arises when the couple has to leave each other and go abroad for their future endeavors. What will they do now ? Will they end up sacrificing their careers ? Or will they go ahead with their broad minded thinking. That forms the rest of the story.
A R Rahman's music score is brilliant and is the backbone of the film. As said earlier, it is his background score which lifts the film to another level. Credit also should go to Mani Ratnam for showcasing Rahman's songs such wonderfully. P C Sreeram's visuals are top notch and showcase the film in a romantic light. The way he has showcased Mumbai is so beautiful.Dialogues are simple and go with the mood of the film. Mani Ratnam is back in his elements with this film and nicely executes this love story. He deals with the current mindset of the youth and showcases their emotions well. The way he takes a simple story and sets it amidst the metropolitan city of Mumbai is wonderful. He cashes in on the chemistry of the lead pair and extracts a superb performance from them.
