A great enthralling experience
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would start commenting about the movie by the words of KB. In one of the interviews he said that this movie is his 2nd best movie made.

We come to see Gemini Ganesan after a long gap, and the performance of all the characters are top notch.

In all KB movies even a peck may have a role to play. I was deeply moved by the COOK's character. The movie deals with a protagonist who is a maverick and doesn't want to follow the same stupid things which even his dad is following now. The concept of inter caste marriage, abolition of Liquor shops etc are very well etched in the movie.

The humor aspect and the Background score are excellent.

A must watch movie.
