The lighting and texture is controlled throughout with consistency, across hugely varied scenes involving the entire gamut of challenges. A stellar cast appears in the film, mostly in bit parts and cameo appearances. He meets the challenges masterfully, with rich dividends for the audience.
But the story and more the directing of the film did not allow the audience to wallow in sympathy nor feel their emotions were played on deliberately.

I will not reveal the story but suffice it to say there are two major narratives, intertwined of course, with two protagonists.
Saumya Liyanage has appeared before as an army man — in two films, I think - memorably as the chap who is followed home by a Tamil girl deserter. It is a gem of a movie, despite its flaws. The role of his girl, the young Tamil, orphaned by a Sinhalese armed force person, was played by Dharshani Tasha. Another sharp juxtaposition was the first kiss of the army officer Mahasen and the Tamil girl he rescues. Later we learn he is on a humanitarian venture, having suffered intensely the war while the revelers, in contrast are raw, shallow youth enjoying the freedom brought on by the ceasefire. Director Bennet Ratnayake has developed a story line dealing with the now concluded war- always a difficult subject. Love is expressed in English.
We congratulate Bennet Rathnayaka and all men and women involved in this film which can be classed as one of the greats in local cinema. So there must have been a valid reason for not roping in Tamils as actors in his film. Mahesen declares he will always love Thiruba to her and later, when he presumes he is dying, requests the young soldier to tell her so by tracing her once hostilities are ended. A masterful attempt to dwell on a difficult subject, venturing into a veritable minefield of controversy with candour and emerging from it by presenting a heartfelt vision for the future of a unified Sri Lanka which belongs to all those who are its citizens. One must also remember when critically viewing a Sinhala film that the vast majority who see it are native language speakers not exposed to the greats of western and far eastern cinema. Veena Jayakodi is seen for less than ten minutes but filled the screen with her portrayal of a contented Tamil housewife and mother soon to go berserk with fear of death.
At the Senior officer's death, the soldier nagged constantly by his conscience and its questioning, feels that he too was responsible for the death of his Senior Officer. I think there was a shade of overacting in her performance, and I did not like the sudden, almost too facile resolution of her final statement that the child belonged with her mother after physically trying to pull the girl from the soldier. Themes are many and conveyed adequately. Reportedly trained in South Korea, and languishing upon his return for want of opportunity, Ratnayake took the risk to give this unknown the opportunity. At the Senior officer's death, the soldier nagged constantly by his conscience and its questioning, feels that he too was responsible for the death of his Senior Officer.

The uselessness of war and its senseless killing and destruction, especially a civil war, came across forcefully.
Ira Handa Yata October 2, 2010, 12:00 pm Review — Nan To me the most striking feature of the now-showing film Ira handa yata below the sun and moon is the sharp editing and visual juxtaposition of contrasting scenes. Udara is the weakest link of all: his is a narrow range looking glum and gloomy, quite well fed, for a soldier in battle, promoted, quite unbelievably, from corporal to Captain!

At the senior officer's death, he, nagged constantly by his conscience, and its questioning, feels that he too was responsible for the death of his senior officer.

He does not compromise in showing the Tiger brutality as they unleash their venom on helpless prisoners nor of the Army as an officer goes berserk with vengeance and executes two civilians in cold blood. Her sudden conversion to racial amity seemed trite The easy possibility for racial parity, communication and cooperation was projected through the marriage of Mahasen to Thiruba.
