Great Movie
4 September 2009 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

One of the great classic movie come out from South Asian region. There isn't much incidents happening in the movie but performances of the characters & how it emerging form a small incident is the talent of the director. This movie was banned at the time it was showing in the Sri Lanka. It was relating to terrorist problems at that period of the country & therefor film was heavily criticize by the government. However it took attention form locally as well as Internationaly. If someone forget to mention the remarkable acting of the Joe Abewickrama i think it is really unfair. This kind of films are created very rarely to film industry. so i think if you a movie lover then you should have seen this kind of classy movie. These people should born in place like Hollywood to take the best of their creativity. Actually superb movie to watch.
