Kamal Kamal and Kamal
19 July 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I don't remember watching it when I was young, but having watched it recently I probably can't describe in mere words how much I enjoyed it.

I am a great Kamal Fan. And every time he cries on screen he sure brings a drop from my eyes too. Especially in Apoorva Sahodarargal as Appu. The pain he suffers being a dwarf was touching. Especially in the Register office scene where he gets to know he isn't the bridegroom. He made the anguish look so real. This movie is still a mystery since know one knows how Kamal remained short and bent his knees ! The songs and Music are a sensation. Illayaraj is a pure genius.

Monorama's "Aiyo Aiyayoooo..." is hilarious. The dialogues from Crazy Mohan were as Crazy as ever.

Janakaraj and R.S. Sivaji combo is still remembered with the latter's lavish praise on the former. Nagesh deserves a note worthy mention.

Its a classic entertaining Kamal movie fare from the stables of Raj Kamal Internationals.
