Kadhalil Sodhapuvadu Eppadi? – [2012] – Tamil

March 15, 2012

Whenever I see a romantic comedy movie in English, a thought always comes to mind, ‘Why we never make such funny romantic movies? Else are we too serious when discuss about love?’ Well the answer is, after watching ‘Kadhalil Sodhappuvadu Eppadi?’ (How to mess up in love?) I understood love here is as much fun as there in west only the Indian filmmakers have forgotten to see the funny face of it.


Story? What story? These kinds of movies need the intelligent screenplay and dialogues that will make us to sit and laugh. Well if you still ask… Here it is:

Arun and Parvathy were studying in a college and by the gradual interaction they fall in love. But ego clashes were coming up with each other hanging on to their priorities in life and not on to their relationship which threatens break their relationship.  How they fall in love, breaking up and again comes together forms the story.

Story is nothing to be excited but it’s the presentation which makes this more than watchable. Director has intelligently woven 3 more love stories around the love of Arun and Parvathy each is completely different from the other one. One love deals about a guy so shy but loves a girl who is already in love with his college senior, Other one deals with a girl who broke up with a guy and falls in love with one of his friends and the last one being the 40+ year olds applied for divorce understanding each other characters and again being together.


Acting is neat from the lead actors and it was the friends around them bring huge laughter with every expression. The parents of the lead characters are behaving in a normal way unlike in some masala movies where they will make them look like foolish.

Dialogues are so sharp, witty and natural that will make us laugh throughout. A sample below:

Girl: Nee epovavathu en kita poi solli irukiya? (Did you ever lied to me?)

Boy: Perusa illa. Summa chinna chinnatha.. kelambrathuku munnadiye kelambiten anda mathiri solli irukken. (Not anything big. Some small ones like I have said I started before even starting like that)

Girl: Inimel anda chinna chinna poi kooda sollada. (Hereafter don’t say those lies too.)

Boy: ok.

Girl: Inda salwar la naan epdi iruken? (How am I looking in this Salwar?)

Boy: Nalla illa. (Not good)

Girl slaps and goes away.

There are numerous scenes like this. Another strong point of this movie is, all the happenings on screen are something happens to everyone. We can easily relate to it.

When I finished watching this movie I felt lighter and relaxed something not offered by any movie I watched. Only drawback of the movie is the music is not upto the mark. Even though they sync with the movie there is no special in it.

All I can say is, go for it and enjoy.


Director of this movie Mr. R. Balaji has already directed a short film under the same title and you can watch it below to check out how the movie will be. I can guarantee the movie it was twice the fun provided by short film.

One another beautiful short film from the same director:

Note: This movie is also released in telugu as ‘Love failure’

    I am giving this movie a miss… I am not very impressed with the theme – Is the Tamil film industry trying to emulate the Telugu one?

    kanagu: Hmmm… I think even in Telugu this kind of film didn’t came. Only a part of life is shown in this movie. Anyway everyone has different tastes 🙂
