O Kadhal Kanmani - Movie Reviews

Nice-ish. That’s the word I have right now for O Kadhal Kanmani, A.R. Rahman’s latest album for Mani Ratnam
The Hindu
The cuteness, the zingers, the youngness — it’s all back. Seen one way, O Kadhal Kanmani is something of a greatest-hits package
The Hindu
One really good thing that makes Mani Ratnam stand apart from many other Tamil directors is that he doesn’t create tragedy unless there is a need.

When the promos of Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani were out, the ace filmmaker had literally brought the time machine out of his closet and took us back in time when R Madhavan and Shalini played lovers in the iconic film Alaipayuthey.
BollywoodLife
This is a Movie connected to Love.So youth can enjoy the movie as well with their family members.
Business Of Tollywood
Overall, this is a movie which is a sensible and practical romantic entertainer. At the box office, this would appeal strongly to the urban and class audience so success looks certain.

Mani Ratnam who tasted some flops of late, stuck to his strength, a love story. He came with another love story similar to Sakhi. Viewers will get bored in the second half as things get serious compared to romantic first half. Only youth will love the film as it turns out to be old wine in new bottle.
AndhraHeadlines
OK Bangaram is a beautiful and realistic tale that chronicles the journey of a young couple as they discover the true meaning of love.

ManiRatnam drenched us with Romantic rain and we can call this film as this generation sequel of Sakhi.

With Ok Banagaram, Mani Ratnam makes a decent comeback. He gives the audience what is expected of him and narrates the film in a youthful way. Stunning chemistry between the lead pair and thumping music score are basic assets of the film. If you manage to ignore the routine story, Mani Ratnam’s racy narration will make you fall in love all over again.

Come fall in love with OK Bangaram...Everything is told. On the whole, O Kadhal Kanmani is Mani Ratnam's magic through Dulquer Salman and Nithya Menon – on screen & AR Rahman's music and PC Sreeram's camera works off screen. OK Bangaram will be instant hit with youngsters, while it may not go hand in hand with others...

First half of the film is nice. Second half is bit slow. Climax is nice though a predictable one. Plus points are vintage Mani Ratnam’s moments, cinematography and music. On the flipside, the narration is very slow in second half. If you are expecting another Sakhi from OK Bangaram, you will be get disappointed. But, it’s a decent attempt

The comeback is sweet. Like an ageing boxer, whose ego has been hurt, he has delivered a knock-out

You are Lovely Bangaram.Ok Bangaram has plenty of ingredients to shine in Metros or higher order centers. For lower classes, there is still something to connect for. Commercially and technically, Mani showed his mark and efforts.

OK Bangaram is a Feel Good, Urban Romantic Musical Drama. The second half of the film have pace related issues but ends well. The only problem with OK Bangaram is the Urbane and Class View and outlook which may not go well with B, C center audience.

OK Bangaram is far different from what is generally expected from a director like Mani or at least what is expected from the cool posters released before the film was out into theaters. It can be considered as a one time watch movie, at least for the fans of AR Rehman who need a visual experience to those decent tunes.

There are a host of new singers in Oh Kadhal Kanmani, but it’s the good old Chitra who comes up trumps as she sashays through the melodious and lyrical Malargal Keten with utmost ease

Mani Ratnam made Raavan/Raavanan and then Kadal, those who’ve grown up watching, almost studying, films made by this reputed director tried, in vain, to hold on to a few bright spots these films had to offer
