Leelai (2012) Tamil Movie Review Aggregator
Leelai, the Tamil romantic comedy film directed by Andrew Louis and produced by Ramesh Babu, stars newcomers Shiv Pandit and Manasi Parekh in lead roles along with Santhanam and Suhasini Raju in pivotal roles. The film has opened to positive reviews all over!
Rediff agrees that the film is worth a watch: “While the first half moves at a spanking pace, the second half sags lightly, with minor plot-holes and songs that hinder the pace. Andrew Louis’s screenplay has plenty of pep, revolves around human emotions and sticks to realism most of the time.”
Sify feels the film is good fun: “Leelai is a cool light-hearted rom-com from debutant director Andrew Louis. The film at 2 hours and 15 minutes is an enjoyable romantic ride, laced with peppy music and good fun. The story is wafer thin but it is the packaging and one liners which helps the film to a large extent.”
India Glitz says this is interesting cinema: “ Boy meets girl and they fall in love. They encounter troubles, overcome all odds and finally hold hands. This is what a romantic story means in Tamil cinema. Debutant filmmaker Andrew Louis has consciously chosen to deviate from this cliched path to render a rom-com that is interesting and entertaining.”
