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

an intense thriller!!
27 September 2001 | by (chennai, india) – See all my reviews

kuruthipunal will remain a hallmark movie in indian cinema, based on a movie by govind nihalani ("drohkaal") - kamal & p.c sreeram have taken indian cinema to new heights with this movie.

the tight screenplay, the excellent performances, the biting dialogues, the beautiful cinematography all add up to make this one of the best movies ever from india.

the movie did surprisingly well for a movie without songs and was well appreciated in urban circles. the non commercial approach actually added to the offbeat theme of the movie.

this in my opinion is probably kamal's best performance.

a perfect 10.
