Iraivi - my review

*spoilers ahead*

After a very long time I felt like watching a KB movie . Take a bow Karthik subburaj for choosing such scripts and not compromising. Iraivi is not a film that glorifies women. It instead , very subtly , brings out the otherwise ignored , but very important, emotions of women . It talks about "emotional freedom" . It talks about how even the basis of life - happiness , is dependent on men, for the women in our society. Agreed, there are some hiccups in the way the movie travels, like the two unnecessary songs. BUT, when was the last time in TC we saw a movie based on such complicated emotions and relationships? When was the last time we saw a drunkard but loving husband? When was the last time we saw an important female character in the movie say "let's just f*ck" ? When was the last time we saw a hero bashing men with lines like "evalo kevalamana piravi la nama" ? For these, and for some wonderful dialogues like , "enaku kalyanam aiduchu , kozhantha iruku aana ena idhu varaikum yaarum love panathu illa" and "mazhai la nenaiyalama? Vendam, nenanjiruvom", go watch Iraivi! :)
