Dud
10 January 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Jaishankar has definitely done better films, and this one gets pretty boring after a while. Same old story of Aladdin and the magic lamp. Nagesh does his best but even he cannot engage the viewer for too long. One memorable song in "Andha Sivakami Maganidam".
