Watched Mani-saar's Alaipayuthey for the second time and was glad to note that it passed my personal test of the second viewing. I have a thumb rule that gives me an idea how much I like a film: if I can bear it for a second viewing then I probably like it a lot and wouldn't mind watching parts of it in the future again. The movie is good but not great, 'tis the simplicity of the story that appeals. (Refer post on first viewing here. Interestingly, in that post I mention that Ratnam's Madrasi gangster flick Dalapathi pioneered the slow-motion song choreography. I think I got it wrong. If I am not mistaken, it was Idayathai Thirudathey (I forget the original name of the Telugu movie).)
