One talks and the other listens
One of the biggest takeaways from the movie was how polar opposite the two lead characters were. While Aravind (Dulquer Salmaan) loved to talk, Anjana (Nazriya Nazim) kept her thoughts to herself. From the moment the duo first meets, the viewers simply get lost in how perfectly they both fit in each other’s lives. Even when the whole town goes mute in the movie, the duo communicating through just eye contact is charming to watch.

Kadhal Ara Onnu Vizundhuchu
The song Kadhal Ara Onnu Vizundhuchu was an instant hit when the movie came out. Composed and sung by Sean Roldan along with Shaktishree Gopalan, the song was constantly being played in everyone’s head. The video of the song played a big role in its success and the Nazriya-Dulquer duo is responsible for it. With shots set in the high ranges of Kerala, the duo was dressed as a couple from an 80s romantic drama flick and it simply fit. The duo simply looked like they were from the era of plaid jackets and long silky dresses. The song till date is a fan-favourite for obvious reasons.
Share your candy
One of the cutest scenes in the movie is when Aravind finds out about Anjana’s obsession with candies. Aravind being the free-spirited romantic that he is, goes out of his way to get Anjana a load of her favourite candies without her knowing. As Nazriya plays out the character as a child-to-the-heart person, this scene and her reaction to it is sure to put a smile on your face.
A smile says a thousand words
The movie takes a big turn when every resident of Panimalai hill station is forced to stop talking due to some unforeseen reasons. While people fail to communicate the easiest of things, Aravind and Anjana simply aces through the situation by exchanging looks and smiles. As cute as it sounds, the duo’s chemistry is sure to melt your heart. It is one of the many reasons that Nazriya – Dulquer became a prominent partnership that went on to feature in many more movies.
