The movie is about a girl who is sent on a mission to assassinate a VIP by becoming a human bomb. It can be related to the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, former Prime Minister of India. A notable fact is that no where in the movie is there a mention about the roots of the girl nor who the VIP is. It rather narrates the incidents that occur from the time she is chosen on this mission.
The movie has wonderful cinematography by Santosh Sivan and good performances by all the artists. All the artists were very natural making the movie more realistic.
The unconventional ending has done justice to the narration.
