The one that changed Tamil cinema
9 January 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Little needs to be said about the film that launched Sivaji's career, alongwith Karunanidhi's. After almost 50 years, it is as powerful as ever, thanks to Sivaji's brilliant portrayal of the Burma-returned Gunasekaran and the dialogues (who can forget the courtroom scene). Though long drawn out and sagging at times, it remains a classic for all times. Get the CD, DVD, whatever and watch it.
