2. The ugly truth
Yaadhumaagi Nindraai exposes the hidden faces in the glamorous world of cinema. Gayathri’s film shows us the dark side of the glamour world such as most girls are being sent blindly into compromising situations, among others. The world of glitz and glamour mesmerises all but we must take a moment and think once again before venturing into it.
All the songs in the film are good and you don’t feel like fast-forwarding any of them while watching the film. The album has been composed by Ashwin Vinayagamoorthy, and the tracks are sure to tug at your heartstrings. While I loved all the songs, Pudavai Nilave is definitely my favourite one, which is crooned by Dhanush.
Yaadhumaagi Nindraai, which gives an insight into the lives of background dancers, has a message for all those aspiring models, dancers, singers and actors. “It imparts a message that women are not weak and should stand up for themselves always,” Gayathri said during the trailer launch of the film.
