Kadhal Azhivadillai

T. RAJENDER'S DIALOGUE, songs and music, T. R. Silambarasan's (Chimpu) acting talent and Charmi's charm contribute to the making of Chimpu Cine Arts' love story "Kadhal Azhivadillai."

The story line has nothing innovative to offer in terms ofcontent. Chimpu and Charmi are college mates. Chimpu gets elected as students chairman while Charmi loses, much to the chagrin of her politician father (Radha Ravi). Although she is equally upset, Charmi is drawn towards Chimpu. Love of course blossoms and how the two unite is told in typical TR style. It is Silambarasan's film. He has worked hard to present a near-perfect job in fights and dance sequences. That facing the camera is not a new experience for him shows in is performance. He is picture of dignity when he professes his love for Charmi in the presence of her parents. After the lead pair, the spot light falls on Prakash Raj, as a person who always suspects his wife, and Seetha who suffers the pinpricks of her husband. Both have done a neat job. It is a different kind of role for Rajender as Dada but if he has intentions of continuing acting he must do something about is weight. Monika and Rohith as villain show promise. Karunas, S. S. Chandran, `Vennira Adai' Murthy, Dhamu, Y. Vijaya, V. K. Ramaswamy and Ajai Rathman are also in the cast.

Among the six songs, Shanker Mahadevan's `Viralu Visilu' and the two songs sung by Chimpu — ``Jothikava" and ``Clinton Magalo" deserve mention. The film has been produced by the TR family. Daughter Thamizh Ilakkiya has done the costume designing and son Kuralarasan has acted as the brother of the heroine. Co-produced by Usha Rajender, the story, screenplay, dialogue, camera and direction are by Rajender, who has also produced the film.
