Sachin ( Pratiek Babbar ) is a regular guy, who falls in love with Jesse. She is a cute girl next door. Sachin experiences love at first sight. Jesse is pretty, cute and charming. But he is a Hindu, and she is a Christian. She is also a year elder to him. When Jesse's parents do not give their consent for their romance, she must choose one. Her family or love for Sachin. Which is it going to be?


Some directors dig for a different unoriginal theme in movies, and there are directors like Gautham Menon, who believe in the clichéd kind of love. Everything in this movie is clichéd. The story, the beginning scene, the whole love at first sight phenomenon. The movie is not original and in the first half an hour itself, the plot of the movie can be easily guessed. Cinematography of this movie is excellent. Some of the visuals of Kerala are breathtaking and beautiful. There are no unnecessary subplots, and the movie focuses on the main story that is a nice change. The music by AR Rahman is another redeeming quality of the movie, the music is soothing and soulful. The scenes are extended a lot, and few cuts could have been easily possible. The screenplay is very slow and drags through.


Prateik Babbar, shows a vast improvement in his acting skills as compared to his previous works. He gives an average performance much like his lead counterpart Amy Jackson. Amy Jackson looks refreshingly beautiful draped in sarees, and is a sight to eyes. But they both seem to try too hard, though. The chemistry between them is present, but not quite. At some point the anguish felt by them, is not apparent at all.


+ A romance with some anguish and a guaranteed happy ending, unlike its Telugu and Tamil counterparts.

+ A very soulful romantic track , with refreshing songs.


+ The very much needed chemistry between the lead pairs.

+ Commitment to the screenplay, as the plot brings in a lot of subplots that are unnecessary.


The movie is a nice love story, can be watched by any romance lovers.
