The King in action
8 January 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

The King of Melodrama, M R Radha, stars in this all-time great tale of an arrogant man who loses his life to leprosy. Though outdated, the film hold your attention with the help of Radha's stylistic portrayal of a westernised rich man who finally realises his mistakes. Also unforgettable for its songs and radical (for its time) finale.
