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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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 Tabu plays Sowmya, the pragmatic, somewhat withdrawn sister, who feels she is bad luck when it comes to love; Aishwarya Rai is Meenakshi, the romantic sister, brimming with life, not afraid to dream and then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.Read more ›
