Seeing the movie 15 years after its release
29 June 2001 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

K.Balachander is one of the most intelligent film makers in Tamil Cinema, who is at present making his 100th film. So in his long, illustrious career, he's made several classics,"Punnagai Mannan" being one of his finest. It is interesting to note that he lets Kamal(the hero) and Illayaraja(Music) dominate the proceedings. The story is a beautifully written, well enacted one- that of a man struggling to face the bitter realities of life in trying to start a "second" life. The music, both the songs and the background score, is mind boggling-especially "Kaala Kaalamaaga," "Singalathu" and "Enna Satham" being great songs. The background score accompanied by the graceful dance of Kamal and Revathi (the heroine) is a highlight for the movie, so also Kamal's performance in another role-Chaplin Chellappa-the comic genius. All said and done, the climax is quite dissapointing and doesnt keep in line with the tone of the movie. The climax feels very contrived...other than that, a wonderful musical
