excellent
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

great direction, great acting and what i call "MUSIC" illayaraja is god.

this movie had strong characters, very good direction and a great message told very effectively.

Kamal plays the son of a great singer (played well by gemini ganesan). He does not like to follow his family traditions blindly and becomes kind of a rebel within the family.

he has some ideas about how a society should be and shares the same with sita (his girl friend). he decides to inculcate some values in the people around him and make the place around him a better place to live in.

great movie, the songs rock thumbs up
