Udhayamoorthi (Kamal Haasan), son of an orthodox Carnatic Musician, Marthandam Pillai, voices for social causes against his father's will and in a way gains the trust of local people and brings self-awareness in neighboring villages.
K Balachander returns with a moralistic tale of how politics and power can corrupt the best of men. Told of course in the cliched exaggerated style that he has become infamous for, the initial one-third of the film is quite absorbing. Sarita, Rajesh and Delhi Ganesh throw in wonderful performances, and VS Narasimhan's melodies remain fresh even today.
