Mayaanadhi is one of those rare Indian films that talk about a love that’s so gloriously hidden beneath layers and layers of hate. It probably has my favorite debut performance of an actress. It probably is my favorite love story of this decade.
It probably is my favourite film where two genres twin together with so much depth and yet doesn’t overdoes one another. But.. Mayaanadhi is always about this painstaking punch in the heart when Maathan asks Appu, ‘Don’t you feel an iota of love towards me?’ and she replies with all the coldness in the world, ‘Can you get lost, Maathan?’.
