must watch movie
26 September 2014 | by (INDIA) – See all my reviews

Excellent master piece from K.Viswanath...Must watch movie., its awesome

It's a story of a Great classical singer (Mammooty) and a boy who is just starting his career in classical music. But with his knowledge and talent he is in a position to overcome that legend, which couldn't be tolerated by this boy. Internally he realize the boy's talents but couldn't tolerate him anymore.

This resembles the story of "Amadeous" but developed and shot for Indian classical base and environment. Needless to say music is the back bone for this movie and in the name of K.V.Mahadevan his assistant Pugalendhi has composed all the songs. Each song is a master piece.

Radhika did her best and (after "Swathimuthyam" by K.Viswanath) she got an excellent opportunity to show her talent.

A Worth Watching Movie!!
