This movie justifies this popular belief by engaging the audience in its intriguing storyline. The direction thrills you despite its predictable plotline.


Geethaiyin Raadhai, written and directed by Shalini Balasundaram is a Malayalam Indian romantic comedy. The plot of the film narrates the quest of the heroine to find the love of her life. When she finally finds her perfect partner, they face inevitable obstacles which they eventually overcome. Their journey of love is troublesome, but they ultimately triumph. It is their love that triumphs.


“Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you’ve got to let it grow.” The lead female protagonist displays an air of childlike vigor and holds on to her belief of finding the perfect man for herself. She defies the traditional conventions whereby it is the family’s responsibility to search a suitable partner for their daughter. She is a woman of the current times, showcasing the changing society and ideologies shared and upheld by the present generation. She in due course finds her ideal one, and they fall in love with each other. Their love story showcases the ups and downs of a relationship while retaining the strength of their affection to fight against the upheavals. Their love is like a string which stretches away as far as possible but stays connected forever. The movie holds up the authenticity of the everyday life well in place for the audience. It keeps the viewers glued to know the way in which the story would lead on from now. The film direction is engaging and reveals to us the duplicity of the society that we inhabit. The director has been witty in her use of a female lead to shift the stereotypical male angle of a romance genre to her heroine.
