Storyline

Guna ( Kamal Haasan ) is a mentally affected person and receives treatment in a mental asylum in Hyderabad . He does not like his father and his mother is a moll in the house that they live. He assumes a fictitious character named Abirami (also, the name of an Indian goddess) and registers in his mind that she is an angel who is going to marry him on a full-moon day. After coming out of the asylum, he believes the story to be true and believes that his Abirami is somewhere around.

Trivia

The cave where Guna hides Roshini aka Abirami is situated in between three naturally arranged imposing boulders. Due to this fact, from outside, when fog passes the cave, rises and comes out of the chimney-like opening, it appears as though a devil is cooking. For this mere reason, it was originally called as the Devil's Kitchen. Since the movie's release this almost untrespassed location, gathered popularity and has been rechristened to Guna Cave. It is currently a tourist attraction in Kodaikanal, Tamilnadu. See more »

A dream gone sore
24 May 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie plot cannot entirely claim itself to be original. It was produced a couple of years after 'Tie me up, tie me down' [1990 /Spanish / dir: Pedro Almodovar]. The male lead in both films have mental problems. The female lead in the Tamil version is a wealthy girl; she is an actress in the Spanish version.

But Almodovar will find a better attempt at another Tamil version when 'Mayavi' with Surya Sivakumar and Jyothika was made a couple of years back.

Interestingly this movie is not listed in IMDb !!! I cannot immediately provide information on this film.

Then again the Almodovar movie itself has a plot very similar to English novelist John Fowles' 'The Collector' [1963]!!!!!
