Kandukondain Kandukondain – A film in which Rajiv Menon borrows the essence of Sense and Sensibility and dresses it up with natural splendour, subtle nuances and soul-stirring music to give us a refreshing lessons on life, love and second chances. In hind sight the two pairs are caged souls yearning to break free.  The sense of fulfillment when they find each other eventually paves way for the freedom that they seek.

Oh my lady love! Here I am waiting for you with open arms but you seek solace elsewhere. You yearn for the raindrops while I seek comfort in the early morning sunshine. I know we are two extremes struck at the opposite end of the spectrum but I am willing to wait.

I cherish your excitement for you have shown me the splendour of hope. I know I am boring. But there’s more to me than what meets the eye. I wish you would open your mind and decode what lies within. I know it will take time but I am willing to wait.

I can see through your veil of strength. The core that is within the veil is breaking down. Oh let me come to you and fix the broken core. Let me be your knight in shining armour.

I am smiling now for I see you yearning for the sunshine after soaking your soul in the rain. Your soul is drenched with fear and despair. Let me show you the way back to hope again.

You are the best thing that happened to me since the war. The tables have turned. You are ready to hold my hand but I fear that I might fail you. It’s a war of a different kind. But your firmness wins me over. Let us fill our souls with sunshine.

Oh my lady love let’s find an alternate meaning to the usual clichés of life together.


Thank you!

Thank you for being my pause button. I am running around searching for my first big break I forgot to sit back and reflect on what could be done differently to earn my moment of glory. Don’t blame for fate hasn’t been too kind.

They have a template for what for would work and I am unable to tell them that their pre-defined rules cage me. I have a different perspective. I want to break free of the stereotypes and the clichés.

Your strength astonishes me. Destiny constantly ridicules you but you refuse to break down. It’s remarkable and inspiring. The ease with which you go around doing what needs to be done despite the hurdles is the one trait that drew me to you. Thank you for being my pillar of hope.

My first big break arrives and I am yearning to win back my queen. Don’t go back to shell after standing by me through thick and thin. I admit I made a mistake but we all slip up at one point or another. It was a desperate last attempt. Don’t be a prisoner of fate after doing everything you can to break free. Let’s start over and begin our journey. Let’s start our first take of love with a splendid shot together.

Thank you for being my lucky charm!
