Meendum Oru Kadhal Kadhai – Review by Naveen

Meendum oru remake

Meendum Oru Kadhal Kadhai

– Review

If ‘Thiruvilayadal’ is remade today, the apt answer for the question ‘Pirikka mudiyathathu…’ would be ‘Mithran Jawahar and remakes’.
Right from his first film (‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’) in 2008 to his latest outing ‘Meendum Oru Kdhal Kadhai’, the director has made a career out of remakes, one can say.
Having said that, we should also accept that remakes are not an easy thing and Jawhar has been good at it. And he proves it once again in ‘Meendum Oru Kadhal Kadhai’.
A faithful remake of ‘Thattathin Marayathu’ (‘Behind the veil’), here is the story of ‘MOKK’: Vinod (Walter Philips), with a next-door boy appeal, is an average student from a middle-class Hindu family. He falls in love with an ethereal beauty Aisha (Isha Talwar), hailing from a wealthy and politically influential Muslim family.
Smitten by love, the hero, as custom suggests, croons a few heart-melting songs, shakes a leg in style and jumps the compound wall of the palatial house of his sweetheart to air his feelings.
All his adventures are well-supported by his selfless friends. And one day, much to his surprise, Aisha reciprocates to his love. But there are the usual hurdles a normal Hindu-Muslim love would face.
But the big help comes from the men in khaki. Moved by his tale of woes, the policemen (led by Manoj K Jayan) wholeheartedly play the part of St Valentine and ensure the story ends in a happy note.
Walter emotes well and humour comes naturally to him. Isha Talwar has reprised her role and it’s a cakewalk for her. Manoj K Jayan, Thalaivasal Vijay, Singamuthu and others add value in supporting roles.
G V Prakash Kumar’s songs add glory to this love story, while Vishnu Sharma’s cinematography is equally good. But at places, we get the feel of watching a Malayalam movie. Also, the pace is slow. But still, ‘MOKK’ makes you feel good while walking out of the theatre.

Rating: 3 out of 5
