Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee review does not contain spoilers –

Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee is like a blast from the past. From its inception, the Tamil drama movie will put a smile on your face with how nostalgic it is. Boys wondering which girls to go after this school year, to the new cool teacher joining the strict Catholic school, to a midnight birthday celebration and a smattering of bullying – it’s an ever day phenomenon in schools wrapped in extremely likeable and relatable characters (the bullying is unfortunate, but you get me).

That’s the charm of this movie, it’s just so relatable. The movie is essentially about a band of boys going through the highs and lows of high school, exams and love. It’s sweet to watch the movie and doesn’t get boring at any point. The movie flows well and the banter and high school shenanigans keep things light, breezy and oftentimes a bit heartwarming. On the other hand, it brings back memories of high-school heartbreaks as well where the smallest of things felt like the biggest of deals.

As Vinoth and Rekha go through the ups and downs of their relationship, you fall for them too. It reminds you of how school was and all of your own experiences come bubbling to the front. As the kids have their farewells, a part of their childhood comes to an end and one fine day, they grow up just a little bit more. The Cupid part in this half of the film was my only real complaint, but other than that, Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee’s first half is infectious, sweet and just a bit sad.

Then we get a time jump to find out what Vinoth and his friends are up to now. Everyone has moved on, most are married. It’s honestly weird to see these same boys acting so mature and grown-up, not everyone but most. As they get to know each other again thanks to a reunion, you feel bad for some of these people who have not taken proper care of their childhood traumas and some are still bullies. Either way, as the movie comes to a close, you realise some people just never mature, some take some more time and others find themselves thanks to situations like these.

Without giving away any spoilers though, wait for that happy ending in the end. Mudhal Nee Mudivum Nee delivers a twist that will probably infuriate you but hey, it’s for the best. This slice-of-life is everything that you need for a light-hearted watch and will take you back to your school days where the future looked bright and life was a lot simpler, with simpler problems.
