This Tamil film ticks the box for matching with Valentine’s week theme. ‘Lover,’ directed by Prabhuram Vyas in his directorial debut for a film, has been receiving good response from the audiences, even amidst tough competition from movies like Lal Salaam and Eagle.
Released today (February 9) in theaters under the production of Million Dollar Studios and MRP Entertainment, ‘Lover’ is a feel-good film about the love life of Arun, and Divya, delivering a blend of love, emotion, sentiment, possessiveness, and action in the narrative. Featuring a cast which includes Manikandan, Sri Gouri Priya, Kanna Ravi, Saravanan among others, ‘Lover’ is applauded for its cast’s right portrayal of emotions.
Audiences say that the storyline is engaging throughout, with a seamless flow without forced comedy dumps. The performances of actor Manikandan and actress Sri Gouri Priya as Arun and Divya, respectively, are noteworthy, portraying their roles with intensity and authenticity. The film is said to resonate with college love stories, making it relatable to youth audiences (Moye Moye moment).
While the first half easily connects with the audience, the second half is slightly lagging. ‘Lover’ emphasizes the importance of freedom in a relationship, discouraging partners from imposing restrictions in the name of possessiveness. The music composed by Sean Roldan blends well with the scenes, improving the cinematic experience.
Overall, ‘Lover’ is deemed as an above-average entertainer for all those who expect to watch love stories on screens with a reality check.
Here are some tweets by audiences who enjoyed watching ‘Lover’:

#Lover Will be one of the movies of the year. Trendy, realistic take on love,relationships, perceptions.
An organic breakthrough of love that may have worked in earlier stages but as it matures it may not.
Prabhu Ram Vyaas u GENIUS. @Manikabali87 is one of India's best actors.

#Lover : So fuckin loved it. Take a bow, Prabhuram Vyas Manikandan aced one of the most irritating protagonist role ever with ease. Sean Roldan’s music was a quality as always. Gouri, Kanna Ravi, Arunachaleshwaran and the character that played as Aishu performed brilliantly.
