But the sequence of events make her to choose Karthik as her best match and she fell in love with karthik. Initially Karthik did not agree as it would break the friendship with Sundar.

Karthik could not tolerate as he was cheated by Madesh (Ravi Prakash) because Madesh used Karthik's photo to win an international award. Then Karthik become addicted to drinks and their married life become a question mark. But yamini is very stubborn and she strongly belives that Karthik would succeed one day. Yamini's abortion because of karthik's furious act, she stops talking with him. Finally Karthik is getting a break and he succeed as a wildlife photographer and Karthik gets the International Photography Award. The movie ends with when yamini started talking with Karthik, a genious.
The character of Yamini after the marriage was shown very good with deep understanding. However the first half of the movie, when she kept changing her mind and fall in love in Karthik stating that the relationship with Sundar is only a dating relationship. Which illustrates the modern culture. However cheating Sundar might have avoided on this movie and it shows the confused mind of Yamini in selecting the partner. Rather Sundar might have introduced Yamini as his one of friend.
The theme of the story is good however the screenplay on the first part might have improved. There is a little mayakkam in mayakkam enna movie. We might see many people got talent but could not get recognition in the world.
