Uyire completes Mani Rathnam’s trilogy that started with Roja and Bombay, and boy, does it disappoint! This is probably Rathnam’s worst effort to date, watchable only because of its superbly crafted technical aspects. Rathnam, has now become as predictable as the sun rising in the east.
Boy (Shah Rukh Khan) meets girl (Manisha Koirala) in a Railway Station on the night of El Nino. Boy, on assignment for All India Radio and falls in love immediately. Boy loses his mind and soul, not to mention the girl, all before you settle down in your seats. Boy, you see is also Program Executive and Disc Jockey rolled into one for AIR somewhere in the North East that plays only Tamil Music, when he is not busy, interviewing wise-cracking terrorist heads who speak chaste tamil!
