These portions unfold as events that happen during one night, and largely involve the conversations between Ram and Janu — why they never connected, what has happened in their lives during the past 22 years, and the feelings that they still have for each other. Even here, we get a terrific moment that acts as a wonderful pay-off to a set-up involving the song Yamunai Aatrile. In an interview with Indian Express, the actress revealed that one of the only reasons that she signed the film was because she wanted to work with Vijay. Will the event spark something between him and his old flame? And the cast is excellent. We get scenes that are clearly a function of the plot — the events explaining why Ram and Janu never got in touch after their separation despite being madly in love with each other, Janu forcing Ram to get a haircut, or the way she is with him in his house… these do not feel as credible as the earlier portions. That is the only place that he chooses to drop by, and this leads to him connecting with his old classmates, and they all decide to have a reunion.
This set-up recalls a similar one in Before Sunset. And the film uses Ilaiyaraaja songs in a unique way to enhance this nostalgia. And in a film where the storytelling is largely organic, these feel like jarring false notes. . Govind Vasantha has done an incredible job with the music of the film.
And that is where he meets Janaki, his Janu, once again, after a gap of 22 years. There is even a time limit to their reunion, for one of them has a flight to catch as in that film. The first half of 96 taps into nostalgia to leave us with a high that only happy associations with our past can evoke. It does begin as the story of its male lead, Ram Vijay Sethupathi , a travel photographer. We're not related to any pirate website. Love is underplayed in the film.

We get a beautifully narrated teenage romance between Ram and Janu that is intercut with moments in the present involving the reunion of childhood friends. Not just the film but the music for the film is also something you would love.
A chance visit to his native, Tanjore, triggers a flood of memories for him… the places that have defined his childhood, like the bus stand where his parents landed at after their marriage, the hospital where he was born, the place that was the first major shopping centre in his town, and most importantly, the school where he met the love of his life, Janaki Devi Trisha. The actors who play the younger Ram and Janu — Adithya Bhaskar and Gouri Kishan — are equally good. The reactions of Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha in this one scene are a sample of their fantastic chemistry. It is only in the second half that Prem Kumar resorts to cinematic plot devices. We even get a cute story on why she is named Janaki.
The other factor that really drew me to this film was the opportunity to work with Vijay. . . . .
