I have known Arun Chidambaram for over 7 years and did not imagine that he would make a film. The song Kalla Manna took me back to my village and childhood days. Not a lot of people dare to take Power-Cuts as the theme and it is excellent that he took this theme as the backdrop of his film. Arun Chidambaram looks even smarter on screen and with Kanavu Variyam we have got a great creator for Cinema. Kanavu Variyam will be a big hit and people will not let Arun Chidambaram leave cinema and he should make more films which will inspire.
