A masterpiece
17 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Only MT could have thought of such a complicated story line. It takes you to a whole new experience.

The characters compete with each other in perfection. But its Lal who is at its best again. The movie takes you to the million dollar question on Death penalty and the judicial system. Thilakan had a very different role as the victims father. And and him taking a very different approach towards the end.

The back ground music complements the movies theme gracefully. This is one movie which you need to see in one go waiting for each scene to unfold. You will!!
