story opens on Valentine’s Day. And
flashes back to another Valentine’s
Day from the past. The film believes in
love as an absolute. Love isn’t the
staple ingredient that it usually is in
Indian cinema but is the film’s very
focus. Here love is religion; love is faith.
Two young lovers (Vignesh, Uma) decide to
separate for a year to test if what they
feel for each other is love or just lust.
The journey that both will make to find
each other again is the heart of the film.
Their journey will also define the nature
of true love. What Vignesh discover at the
climax of the film reveals to him (and us)
the real nature of true love. The secret,
as you all know, lies in the name ‘Soori’
Love in this film is not just another Kollywood
prop. Soori was perhaps a little offbeat
for an audience more used to the theme of
true love being handled more predictably
and less intensely.
