Its worth watching
24 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its a quite sensitive romantic action musical Its music is spectacular and it was widely appreciated and most of its sequences are very well done. Its basically a poor boy meets rich girl kinda story but in here our hero is a son of a police constrable and he is in love with the corrupted governor's daughter and the story revolves around with the characters backed by beautiful scenes and music this film was way ahead of its time when released and can still enjoy watching it. its a group effort and good direction by Shankar and spectacular music by A.R Rahman Prabu Deva has done good acting this movie was his launch pad as an actor and this movie also gave A R Rehman a national recognition backed by splendid performance by Girish Karnad and Raghu Varan (Villian)
