Storyline

Kamal Haasan, the central character, is a man terribly soured by his unvaryingly devastating encounters with the opposite sex. He develops a pathological hatred for women and uses his charm to seduce young women and kill them immediately after having sex with each. These proceedings are recorded watched repeatedly by his adoptive father and mentor, another crazed woman-hater with a similarly disillusioning experience with the female sex, who vicariously enjoys his protege's exploits. The old man stays holed up in a far corner of the house watching his son carry out what he is too infirm to do. Written by Anonymous

Worth watching
26 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as I wanted to watch this movie as a kid, I never did but managed to watch it ultimately. This movie is about a misogynist and his hatred for women. His childhood incidents have made him to hate women and has been feeding on hatred. The title "Sigappu Rojakal" means Red roses signifies the women he goes after kills them and every women deserves a red rose. Bharathi Raja did direct this movie trying to bring negative character in Kamal and succeeded quiet a bit. Sridevi plays a beautiful lady sales clerk at a garment store to fall for Kamal's charm to be married to find out about him. It is race of He knows, she knows, but He knows She does not know what he knows. Time will tell in a excellent thriller of movie, I call it a thriller with the time the movie was made in, a different topic from usual type of movies the same year. Never has any actor tried negative role early in his career to find it turn as a success and bank of having done variety of role, Kamal rocks, so does Sri Devi. Will conclude by saying worth watching at least once...
