Story


Annakodi is a 2013 Indian Tamil romance, costume drama film released on Jun 28, 2013. The film is directed by P. Bharathiraja, produced by Janani Rajkumar. Annakkodi (Karthika) and Kodiveeran (Lakshman) fall in love but her mom refuses to accept the match as he is from a lower caste. Meanwhile, fate lands Annakodi in the custody of Sadaiyan (Manoj K Bharathi) and his lecherous father. Will the lovers reunite? Review: It is always difficult to watch a great director in decline and the first response that 'Annakkodi', Bharathirajaa's return to a genre that he made his own (the village movie), evokes is one of disappointment. This is a director who has managed to astonish us time and again with his path-breaking films and you feel a tinge of sadness seeing him struggle to give us a feel of the places and its people. Part of the blame lies in the characterization and the casting. Lakshman never convinces us that he belongs in this universe, while Karthika gets a hang of things only towards the end. Their romance, which is the pillar on which the film stands, is insipid and the scenes establishing it (hide and seek behind a rock!) feel dated and a few (including one involving the sucking of fingers) even make you cringe. There are things that seem interesting, but both the writing and the acting let them down. It takes a reckless sort of bravado to make a slipper the symbol of the lead's love. We understand why Kodiveeran cherishes the slipper that Annakkodi lent him during their first meeting, but Bharathirajaa overdoes this by turning it into a deity-like object. It is in stark contrast to the way he works Annakkodi's souvenir
