A brilliant biopic!!
2 May 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rarely has a better movie been made about an Indian freedom fighter.Brilliant acting,art direction,music,cinematography,this one has it all!!..this movie takes us into the life of a mercurial genius and makes us stay with him,laugh with him and suffer with him.The actors give once in a lifetime performances..Shayaji Shinde as Bharathi is so amazing he makes Ben Kingsley look like an amateur..A Bengali playing a tamil poet(and playing a firebrand like Bharathi) so realistically!!His eyes light up with the fervor that one has come to associate with Bharathi,his face portrays a whole gamut of emotions..the frustration,the joie de vivre,the sadness,everything that Bharathi went through..Devyani complements him brilliantly as Chellama. As a poet,Bharathi stands right up there with Shelly and Keats..but he was never given the recognition hes deserved when he was alive('a diamond in the dust'says one character)..To see him struggling to pay for his daughter's medication,questioning his faith in god,beating his wife and then being made to realize the idiocy of the act by Annie Besant..we are shown a flawed but entirely human maven ..Often Indian biopics(especially those of freedom fighters) tend to potray a larger than life image of the protagonists...Not Bharathi.. The end (with nallodhor veenai in the background) makes you shed tears..and therein lies the success of this movie
