Audience Reviews for Kannathil Muthamittal (A Peck on the Cheek)

It could have been a sweeping tearjerker but instead good scenes are mixed up with hokey song and dance numbers and a commercial edge.

A little girl learns that she was adopted and sets out with her parents on a dangerous journey through areas at war to find her birth mother and the truth to why she was abandoned. It is a heartbreaking story told through the eyes of beautiful eight-year-old Amudha (the actress who plays her is breathtaking.) The story is a tear-jerker... sure to sweep you away with tender love.
