Storyline

A police officer (Kamal Haasan) must choose between his family and duty, when members of a terror group take his wife and child hostage and pressure him to betray officers from his department. Good thriller, arguably better than the film it was remade from, Govind Nihalani's Droh Kaal. Written by Joyojeet Pal

Comments on kuruthipunal
18 April 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one among "the best" of Kamal.The screenplay is really a wonder.The character of Viswanath(kamal's boss) in the movie is a prelude to that of kamal's. Some of the dialogue's are evergreen.esp the ones kamal and nasser share in the sea shore. The camera focuses on kamal's Black Ray-Ban and Nasser is all in pain in that reflection.So clear,so true.P.C has done a gr8 job.The lighting for the interrogation scenes are just perfect. For those regular "P.Vasu" kind of cop movies,wherein the cop will have every power on this earth to even ask the chief minister to stop talking,this one was a bolt out of the blue. Also the tollgate scene where the cop shoots one of the terrorist's will happen in tamil cinema ,but not the dialog that follows that.Its where kamal asks the cop whether he is married.The lighting and camera angle is so perfect,as if u feel that P.C had just sat in the floor to capture it on the screen.Whata work? The indoor scenes are very good,with bright lighting,bright contrast dresses for the men n women. A gr8 offbeat by kamal and P.C.Sriram
