Storyline

MGR plays a double role as a scientist and his modern-swashbuckler brother trying to protect the world from a gang of evil doers led by scientist/entrepreneur Ashokan, trying to steal a formula to make bombs out of lightning. Jarring camera work, peeling make-up, truly old leading-men, and some fabulous kitsch in this second MGR directorial venture. Must-see for MGR fans, but a fair warning of 3-hours of extreme actor adulation for those new to MGR films. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Around the world with MGR
7 January 2002 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

This film broke new ground in projecting MGR as the Superhero, the saviour of the masses, the do-gooder who also gets the best babes and has the most fun. Little wonder, because he directed it himself! If you can sit through 3 hours of self-adulation and a clearly-too-old Puratchi Thalaivar, this one's for you. Good songs, though.
