They have obviously started off on the right note by choosing characters that are sufficiently removed from cinema stereotypes: Velu (Ashok) is a broker in a lorry-booking office in Thoothukkudi, while Manju Mariadoss (Visaka), a Roman Catholic, is a first year Maths student at a sufficiently down-south college where students are actually in class, studying.

And their first encounter, even if it's a tiff, is fresh enough for you to sit up and take notice. While driving, Velu is thrown off his seat by a studious Manju's flapping dupatta, whereupon they get into a flaming row. But it is the way that tiff slowly blossoms into love that is refreshingly sweet and different, despite being a theme that's been handled a zillion times in Tamil cinema.

Manju's 'love-letter' is hilariously misunderstood by Esakki aka Tyre (Kanja Karuppu, as the perfect accompanying comedian), who takes every opportunity of eavesdropping on the developments, much to Velu's joyous embarrassment. From a demure girl who's nervous of a furious Velu, Manju slowly metamorphoses into someone who begins to see his other side; the caring, perseverant young man who's keen on making his mark in the world. The series of swift montages that show them falling in love are a delight to watch.
