Docu-feel movie
21 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Unnal Mudiyum thambi was the last film in which kamal acted as a hero in KB's direction.

The film was a remake of the KB directed "Rudra Veena" starring telugu megastar Chiranjeevi. The telugu film tanked, so when KB wanted to remake it in tamil, kamal was not keen but gave in after KB argued that he would make this film a hit. It flopped in tamil also.

The film has a good intent, no doubt but offers very simplistic solutions. Like the drunkards in the village giving up booze, just like that. Also, the scene where Seetha advises the village women on how to "not cooperate" with their husbands.

Kamal has done a good job though he seems disinterested in quite a few scenes. Seetha does a fine job as the heroine.

Gemini ganesan shows up after a long time on screen & gives a very effective performance as the arrogant father of kamal. Manorama is good though her scope is limited.

The star of the film undoubtedly is Ilayaraja. His carnatic compositons & others songs with a carnatic & filk tonge are simply brilliant.

On the flip side, the film has a documentary feel & is preachy.

The film was originally titled "Sundara Kaandam".

It was KB's tribute to social scientist M.S Udhayamurthy (hero's name in the film) whose slogan is what became the title later.

KB had rated this film in his top 5 favourite films (surprisingly)
