Dreams is a 2004 Tamil language romance film directed by Kasthuri Raja and produced by Saraswathi Srikanth. The film featured Raja's son Dhanush in the lead role with Diya and Parul Yadav playing other pivotal roles. The film opened to negative reviews and became a failure at the box office.[1]

Production[edit]

The project was launched shortly after the success of Thulluvadho Ilamai in 2002, but as Dhanush's Kaadhal Kondein became a large success, Dreams was stalled temporarily as Dhanush's dates became blocked.[2] The film ran into a legal tussle with the makers of his other film, Sullan, with the producers adamant that Dreams was released first although to no avail.[3] The film's delay meant that Dhanush shot ten straight days for the project to complete it, while the delay also had resulted in failings in continuity.[4][5] By the time of the release, the producer Srikanth and director Kasthuri Raja were still engaged in a legal tussle.[6][7]

Release[edit]

The film upon release in November 2004 gained unanimously poor reviews from critics. A critic described that the "film is poor pastiche of double meanings, bedroom scenes and a few other vulgar segments", criticizing all aspects and giving it a verdict as a "dull and laborious film".[8]

The film opened simultaneously with two successful venture, Attahasam and Manmadhan and subsequently Dreams started slowly and eventually became a colossal failure.[9][10][11]
