“Amarakaaviyam may go overboard with melodrama but, the stunning cinematography, Ghilbran's amazing music and Mia George's captivating performance makes it a worthwhile watch!”

Amara Kaaviyam truly stands out as a musical love story. The film does justice to both, music and love, and also Jeeva Shankar's vision hopefully.

Gautham Menon's actors wear a bracelet, remember Kamal Haasan's from the film Sathya, Jeeva (Sathya) in Amara Kaaviyam too is a Kamal Haasan fan. Ever on the edge, but a clean-hearted guy who falls in love with a girl his friend falls for. Karthika (Mia George) in one sentence sums up her character - wanting to be nice to everybody. Adolescence is a general mischief and love is usually the culprit parents point at. True in most cases. So, how far can lovers go? A spurned lover can go to any extent, Amara Kaaviyam, emphasizes this very theory.

Sathya's savior is Mia George, if she had let him down anywhere, he'd have suffered like a fish out of water. Mia George's performance somehow makes it up for Sathya's stoical bewilderment. But he can't depend on his co-star for his films henceforth, he should act, really.

Jeeva Shankar wins as a writer-director and a cinematographer painting Ooty as the epitome of romance. Visuals lend an abysmal tentativeness of a burgeoning relationship. Ghibran's music is a character that walks on its own legs, brilliantly settling in this lovable crib, a sure delicacy for the audience.

I'm keeping a watch on Jeeva Shankar's next. It's going to be good.
