One of the best tamil movies
18 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

First this movie has a soul in it. The way of life of people struggling for a house within their limited incomes are beautifully explained... Every character is well explained and are played well by every single artist. Pasi sathyas role even short it explains the confident of working women... Chokkalinga bahavadhar made us cry in last ten minutes. the enjoyment of touchin his own house cant be well explained anymore. Archanas roll weightage is never let down anywher in the movie.the carelessness of government is placed exactly wher needed and made us feel the pain of the characters. An excellent plot with a handful characters need a lot confidence and the director succeeded in it.This movie is sure a milestone in tamil industry. hats off to balu mahendra sir.
