My only regret is that I saw this movie only once in theater!, 11 January 2013
Author: Kumaresh Somi

Everyone has a breaking point. What will you do when you reach the breaking point? Will you choose country at the price of yourself and your family or will it be otherwise? How difficult will the choice be? This is the theme of the movie.

This is a classic from Kamal Hassan and team. His performance as Adhinarayanan and Nasser's performance of Badhri character are convincing. The story, screen play and cinematography are absolutely enthralling. The dialogues between Kamal and Nassar are the most thought provoking and captivating. A Hollywood style movie strictly sticking to the script. No songs, duets and dance to be expected from this movie. Sepcial mention to the make up of Arjun and Kamal in the terrorist interrogation scenes deserve a special mention. It is a movie that has cult status, with Kuruthipunal Kamal style hair cut, coolers becoming a trend and widely known across the gent's parlours in Tamil Nadu.

My only regret is that I saw this movie only once in theater!
