Know this one backwards
10 January 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

One of the best Tamil thrillers ever, it brings together all the titans of the time - Kamal, Bhagyaraj, Bharathiraja and Ilayaraja. A memorable and satisfying experience. Kamal in a double role steals the show. Became a big hit in Hindi as well (called Aakhree Raasta), starring Amitabh Bachchan. Don't miss it.
