Ye Maaya Chesaave

Saw Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa sometime back and loved it.  Well, the movie felt a bit longer than it should be; but I really liked the movie.  Went to see the Telugu version of the same movie with a couple of friends.  They almost killed me for recommending this movie to them.  But then, I had no idea they would change the story in Telugu version.  Okay, spoiler alert: I am gonna talk about the story of the movie; don't read if you'd rather see the movie first.

In the Tamil version, Karthik naturally moves on after Jessie leaves him.  He focuses on work; tries to write some scripts; and eventually starts a relationship with another girl.  Jessie too, like most sane people would, gets along with her own life.  In the Telugu version both of them are stuck with their "first love" for years.

In the Tamil version there was a lot happening in the last 10 or 15 minutes and that was good.  In Telugu version -- well, nothing really.  They meet, they say long dialogues, they dance for a song, hero accomplishes something, they get married, and all that crap.

In my opinion, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa is another good movie of Gautham Menon's; and I like him for this movie, along with his other movies.  Ye Maaya Chesaave is not, in my books, a Gautham Menon's movie.  It's just another Your Average Telugu Movie.
