Editorial Reviews

Rich, young, gorgeous and pampered, sisters Sowmya (Tabu) and Meenakshi (Aiswarya Rai, BRIDE & PREJUDICE) want for nothing except the true love their hearts crave. While Sowmya grudgingly places family responsibilities ahead of romance, Meenakshi yearns for a white knight who will come to her "just like a storm." Three different coincidences bring the girls three very different suitors and a tempest of romantic complications. Manohar (Ajith), an aspiring filmmaker, falls for Sowmya but will wed her only after directing his first film. Commando Major Bala (Mammootty) woos Meenakshi despite physical and emotional war wounds and competition from Srikanth (Abbas), a charismatic poetry quoting businessman. But with their patriarch's health ebbing, the romantic storm Meenakshi and Sowmya wished for may soon be eclipsed by the harsh realities of modern South Asian life.

This Tamil-language "Kollywood" film provided an interesting contrast to the Bollywood films I have recently seen. There are differences between the two Indian cinema styles, although both present their stories in similar ways. Not only the language, but the gestures and facial expressions differ between this Tamil film and its Hindi cinematic cousins. Kandukondain Kandukondain (I Have Found It) didn't seem as flashy or energetic, and the music and dancing also seem to reflect a more subdued different style. As I was watching the film, I thought to myself that this was a four-star film, but once it ended and I began reflecting upon what I had just seen, I realized that I was more impressed than I thought. Inspired by Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, I Have Found It does deliver great drama and romance, wonderfully rich characters, and - of course - great entertainment of both mind and soul.

This is basically the story of two sisters - one serious and pragmatic, the other wide-eyed and idealistic. Products of a good family, they enjoy an easy lifestyle, but all of that is put in jeopardy by the death of the girls' grandfather. Forced to leave their own home, they move to Madras and struggle to get by on almost nothing. The older daughter, Sowmya (Tabu), has trouble finding work because she is overqualified, and she is also burdened with the social stigma of being jinxed after the death of her fiancé and a string of reluctant suitors. She meets a young filmmaker in the most embarrassing of circumstances, but their possible marriage has to be delayed until such time as he makes his first film - and time and distance pose new problems that have Sowmya coming to believe that she truly is cursed in love.

For those unfamiliar with Hindi and Tamil popular cinema, this Tamil film, directed by Rajiv Menon is a great introduction, featuring not only Aishwarya Rai but Mammoothy (the biggest actor of the Malayalam film industry), Tabu (playing Ms. Rai's sister, and who is typically seen in Hindi films) and an upbeat soundtrack by A.R. Rahman, lavishly shot by Mr. Menon. The counter-intuitive pairing of Mammoothy and Aishwarya Rai works, and the former in particular is fabulous as a one-legged (and embittered) veteran of India's Sri Lankan adventure. Mr. Menon handles his film deftly, and most viewers will probably not notice or mind its length, running close to three hours. For Bollywood fans who generally prefer to steer clear of Tamil cinema, this film is Exhibit "A" for how and why the Tamil film industry is producing some of the smartest, freshest, commercial cinema in India today, cinema which nevertheless remains true to its traditions. I wouldn't make too much of the notion that the film is an "adaptation" of Austen's novel; the two share a kinship, but no more (that is not a criticism of "Kandukondain Kandukondain," which does just fine with what it is). Wish I knew Tamil, as Vairamuthu's lyrics are fabulous in the Kino DVD's subtitles.
Note: I have also viewed the Aingharan DVD of this title; the subtitles are much better in the Kino version, and the latter doesn't leave dialog untranslated as the Aingharan DVD occasionally does; plus the subtitles are of better quality, and the Aingharan DVD does not subtitle the songs. All in all one is better off spending the extra few bucks for the Kino version.

I don't watch a lot of Bollywood musicals, but I was intrigued by the premise of this one: loosely based on Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, and set in modern-day India, it follows the story of two sisters and the men who court them. Since I am a big Jane Austen fan, I simply had to see how this was done, and I am very glad I took a chance on this marvelous film.

Beautiful costumes, great song-and-dance numbers and some gorgeous scenery--one scene appears to be shot in Egypt at the Pyramids, another at a Scottish castle. My only problem with the film is the hilariously bad subtitles, which start lagging about 30 seconds behind the action on screen around halfway through the film. I had to give up on them about three quarters of the way through the movie, but the story was easy to follow, and I didn't feel lost.

Overall, an excellent film, and highly recommended.

Edited to add that I should have rated the film 4 stars instead of just 3.

Having been semi-introduced to Bollywood thru Bride and Prejudice and thus to Aishwarya Rai, I was eager to see another Indian film done ala Jane Austen. I'm pleased and somewhat relieved to say that Kandukondain Kandukondain (I Have Found It), based on Austen's Sense & Sensibility, comes up a definite winner. This is another superb film effort teeming with bright colors, lavish costumes, bright sets, eye-popping song & dance routines, well-cast actors and a classic storyline.

I Have Found It is the tale of two sisters and their travails, romantically, financially, socially. Tabu plays Sowmya, the pragmatic, somewhat withdrawn sister, who feels she is bad luck when it comes to love; Aishwarya Rai is Meenakshi, the romantic sister, brimming with life, not afraid to dream and then pursue that dream; Ajith portrays Manohar, a would be director who spurns his father's offer to work for his business and vows to marry the emotionally fragile Sowmya as soon as he directs his first film; Mammootty's character is Bala, a bitter one-legged, ex-soldier drunkard who nevertheless is steadfast in his unrequited love for the unattainable Meena and seemingly is always there when Meena needs him most; Abbas plays Srikanth, a rich businessman who recites poetry and becomes the center of Meena's world, much to Bala's quiet despair. Anyone who has read Sense & Sensibility should be able to recognize the characters and somewhat follow along with the story's unfolding.
