Synopsis: The movie is about Varun (Vemal) and Anjana (Lasini), and the choices that Varun makes with regard to this relationship drawing on what he has imbibed from the relationships of his friends.

Movie Review: Varun, a chartered accountant, helps Anjana find work in his father's firm after he is smitten by her. Though Anjana is not interested in a relationship as she is trying to deal with a failed engagement, she falls for Varun's charms. It is at this point that Varun realizes Anjana is not the right person for him. Vemal as Varun is far from convincing as he fails to capture the urban leanings of his character. He tries his hand at a character that he has experimented with in movies such as Ishtam , but fails to impress yet again. The chemistry is sorely missing in the Vemal-Lasini pair. Director Vasanth tries to charm the audience with humour in this segment of the three-part love story, but it largely falls flat. The movie then introduces us to the story of Gunasekhar (Cheran) and Mallika (Muktha Banu), which engages us in terms of its intensity. This love story traces the life of Mallika, a physiotherapist, who falls in love with Guna, a social worker who helps with the rehabilitation of ex-convicts. This is the
most mature relationship that the movie explores and works best, thanks to some sensible acting by Cheran and Muktha. The third story, between Harris and Divya, is probably the most modern story with both characters completely aware of what they want from the relationship. However, it is also in parts the most far-fetched of stories. Harris, a well-known swimmer, is training Divya to win a gold medal in the Olympics. However, he meets with an accident and becomes a quadriplegic. What happens to his dreams of making Divya an Olympian forms the rest of the story, which mostly defies logic. There is sizzling chemistry between Arjun and Surveen, and they come out with strong portrayals. The music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is the saving grace of 'Moondru Per Moondru Kadal'. The beautiful lyrics of songs such as 'Kadal endan kadal', 'Aaha kadal' and 'Mazhai mazhai' work wonders and keep you engaged in movie. The movie is otherwise slowly paced and the manner in which the songs are picturized leaves a lot to be desired. The movie attempts at a mature take on the three relationships but unfortunately is far from convincing. The movie begins with Vemal and Lasini, who sadly don't endow it with enough meat to make it interesting. Also to blame is the editing, as little has been done to clip out several long and tiring segments that add to the length of the movie.

Note: Moondru Per Moondru Kadal has little charm, unlike its songs.
