The news passes on to Saravanan and his parents. Both the parents wanted them to get married as soon as possible. But, is Saravanan responsible for Meera’s pregnancy? Did their marriage take place? The incidents that happen next forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Kalidas and Megha are good with their performances. They have emoted pretty well and the minute expressions by Kalidas are so cute.


The film that had been in the box for long didn’t disappoint the movie buffs. The main theme about the love and family life of Saravanan and Meera are depicted neatly. Some scenes are dealt with ease and some with comical performances. The music composition by Govind Vasantha is beautiful. The direction is good and the stars are picked well for the sensitive characters.

What’s There?

  • Different story with neat narration
  • Performances of the stars

What’s Not There?

  • Certain confusion towards the climax


This is a different attempt by Balaji Tharaneetharan with a good set of actors. Oru Pakka Kathai is a decent watch!
