Kaatru Veliyidai Podcast/Carcast!!! With Bonus General Ratnam Discussion

As always, best to listen to the podcast after having seen the movie, or else having read my SPOILERS review.  We don’t exactly give a plot summary, and we jump around a bit.  In this case, we also jump over to a lot of other Mani Ratnam films, since Dina hasn’t seen many, and I have seen slightly more, so I was giving her some general Ratnam background.

Oh, and we also take a moment to discuss how many yellow lights we hit on the way home, and the taxi cab that is trying to squeeze past us while I am parked in front of her building.  And, of course, say “Hi!” to Grandpa.  So you get the full experience of riding the car home with us from the movies.

  1. I finally got the chance to listen to this. There weren’t any spoilers that I haven’t already found out already.

    I was going to say that Yuva/Ayutha Ezhuthu had an abusive relationship but then you eventually mentioned it 🙂

    Mouna Ragam is not Mani Ratnam’s first movie but I think it is the movie that made him really popular. Hearing you describe the premise of the movie makes it sound really similar to Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi!

    • It kind of is like Rab Ne! But once they establish the “younger wife, boring older husband, he loves her enough to agree to an empty marriage” premise, it goes in a different direction.
