Film Review: Azhagiya Kanne

 Azhagiya Kanne stars Sanchita Shetty and debutant Leo Sivakumar and hits theatres on June 23rd. Inba ( Leo Sivakumar) and ( Sanchita Shetty ) are neighbours in a village, living opposite each other. The duo soon fall in love. Inba is an aspiring director and finds a job as Prabhu Solomon's assistant. Sanchita gets a job in the IT sector.
