One of good films made by K Balachander, he is awesome as a director , knows how to make actors do their part right. This movie revolves around a musical troupe. Kamal as lead singer and Rajnikanth as guitarist. With association of Singapore Tamil sangam they make a trip to Singapore, where Kamal runs into manipulative, captivating girl and is crazy about her. One thing you cant get out of her is straight answer even if the question would have a yes or no. Having fallen for her. Music is awesome, you will particularly enjoy high energy song "Sivasamboo" filmed on Rajnikanth taking guitar and dancing his hearts out. One of better films of Kamal-Rajni duo, the pillars of Tamil cinema(80s, 90s era). Jayapradha is captivating. What happens is for you folks to watch and find out.
