It's such a rarity to come across films that force you to keep aside your yardsticks of what a good film is and dive into the experience. Amma Kanakku is one such disarmingly simple and heart-warming film that thrives in positive vibes for most of it's part.

The best part about this movie is the way in which the director has resorted to some realistic execution even though he had every other scope to go melodramatic. Barring the character arc of Samuthrakani, the entire movie was outrightly honest and close-to-heart.

Director Ashwini made sure that we sail through the 1.5 hours with utmost ease and grace. The mother-daughter drama was conceived at it's very best. Amala Paul as the emotional and strong mother who strives so hard to push her daughter's horizons was enacted to near perfection. Calling this to be her career best wouldn't be an exaggeration at all. Barring the choice of her dubbing artiste which had a rather matured voice, she was flawless. So was the daughter role played by Yuvashri. The egoistic as well as soft girl was carried out gracefully. Her bad shades didn't look any odd at all. Revathi's screen presence was so pleasing.

Technically editing and cinematography was just too good and gelled with the script easily. Music by Ilayaraja was not at it's best. But thankfully, a couple of emotional scenes were really aided well by the Maestro. Songs were average but saved thanks to some wonderful montages.

The movie on the whole slows down pretty frequently for the building up of plot elements but then picks up gracefully well indeed. There are a couple of scenes in either halves that are good enough to leave gulps down your throat and have you emotionally bonded to the happenings on the screen.

Amma Kanakku is a well crafted drama that steals your hearts and attention as well. Recommended watch even for those who're into mainstream cinema because the director managed to convey the message even without resorting to the 'artistic' route.
