Was a Phenomenon when released....It still is ....
27 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

For starters the hype was always there when Kamal makes a new movie and one where one of the lead actor is dwarf tops it. When it got released it was a trend setter for how movies should be made by actors who know how to relive a role. Well the whole plot and story might be a fiction but Kamal's acting as a serious dwarf working in a circus and happy go lucky automobile mechanic is pretty brilliant. Was one of the best movies in my list for close to year or more. Music which could be catchy even today. Had the VHS tape for a long time before lost it completely would love to have it on a DVD for a collectors copy. Not seen many Indian movies for some time now but if there is any movie with little bit of Kamal in it you can bet your bottom dollar I would give it a try. 10/10 for just the inventive plot and keeping the secret of creating the DWARF till date.
