Mani Ratnam’s timeless classic turns 30

Nearly three decades ago, Mani Ratnam took the Tamil and Telugu audiences by storm when his path-breaking movie, Mouna Ragam, hit the screens and created a new trend in love stories.

Ardent admirers of Mani Ratnam are celebrating the thirty years of this timeless classic which portrayed the intricacies of love, marriage and divorce like no film ever did until then. The film is still considered a pioneer in portraying women’s sensibilities in a strong manner.

Revathi, Karthik and Mohan are still loved for their characters, while Ilayaraja’s melodies continue to play on FM and TV channels.
