A new Mani Ratnam film is an Event with a capital "E". He is one of the top Indian film directors and an auteur. He makes the films he wants to make, and doesn"t just try to chase commercial success. I'm lucky in that there is a theater five minutes from my house that shows Tamil and Telugu films. I was able to catch a matinee of Ratnam's latest film, Kaatru Veliyidai today " the title translates to something like "Breezy Expanse." I haven"t seen tons of Tamil films, but the ones I'vesought out are mostly Mani Ratnam films, Roja to OK Kanmani. He is the master. Kaatru Veliyidai is a romantic drama set around the Kargil War. Karthi plays Varun or "VC", a cocky fighter pilot, and Aditi Rao Hydari is Dr. Leela Abraham. I have never seen Karthi in a film before, but I could tell he is a STAR and quite a good actor.
