Anjali Menon's Bangalore Days was a true blue blockbuster which took the Malayalam film industry by storm. Reminding one of Bollywood multistarrers in terms of style and technical finesse,it was something quite unique for a Malayalam film. So it was no surprise that PVP Cinema decided to go in for a Tamil remake of the same, though it does feel strange that with 'Bommarillu' Bhaskar's popularity in Telugu Cinema, they decided not to make it as a bilingual.

Bangalore Naatkal stays true to the story and flow of the original film. This is a tale of 3 cousins, Arjun (Arya), Divya aka Ammu (Sri Divya) and Kannan aka Kutty (Bobby Simha). In their childhood all 3 of them aspired to lead their adult life together in Bangalore and now they are presented with the opportunity for the same. Divya gets married to Shiva (Rana Daggubati) and moves to Bangalore while Kannan gets an IT job there and soon Arjun joins them as well. So is life all hunky dory for the 3 cousins or do things take a different course of action? That's what we get to see as the film unfolds.

Bhaskar has done quite well in making use of the resources allotted to him and still managing to retain the essence of the original. Gopi Sunder has retained the popular "Mangalyam" song from the original while the other songs are ok. Apart from the deja vu factor (if you have seen the original) the only other problem with the film is that the performances don't really match up to that of the original overall. However Saranya as Kannan's mother is a delight while Parvathy reprises her role with honesty. Sri Divya manages to leave a mark in a role that demands maturity.

Overall Bangalore Naatkal is a good remake of a wonderful film and can work decently for you if you can ignore a few glitches and have not seen the original.
