MeendumOruKaadhalKadhai is an official remake of the malayalam movie ThattathinMaryathu. The original version featured NivinPauly and IshaTalwar in the lead roles. It was very much accepted for its plot and the nativity. The tamil version retained IshaTalwar as the lady lead. GvPrakashKumar has composed the music for this film. The songs were termed one of the bests in 2016 and received great response. Read more to know if the remake has done justice to the original version and well this has worked.
Vinod ( played by Walter Philips ) is a middle class hindu guy in his college days and Ayesha ( played by IshaTalwar ) is an orthodox muslim girl of the same age. Vinod falls for her, loves her truly and convinces her. Will they join or not is this film. What does the cast does to them forms the crux of this film.
Walter Philips being his first film has done a decent job. He has very well conveyed his mood through his expressions. IshaTalwar though doesnt have much dialogues, has done a good job.
Technically, cinematography was too good. Songs by GvPrakashKumar are top notch. The movie was slow though. The screenplay could have been much better. The plot could have been evolved with much better connecting scenes and the screenplay could have been much connecting too. Editing could have been better.
On the whole, MeendumOruKaadhalKadhai is an average outing, that can be watched for the plot and songs.
