Groundbreaking suspense thriller for its time
24 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Kalaignan (Tamil:கலைஞன்; English: Artist) is a 1993 Tamil- language thriller film directed by G. B. Vijay and produced by Ramkumar Ganesan.

The film features Kamal Haasan and Bindiya in the lead roles while Sivaranjani, Sindhuja, Nirmalamma and Chi. Guru Dutt play supporting roles. The film opened in April 1993. The story follows the ordeal of a pop artiste who experience a a serial killer who seems to have a personal agenda against him

Well worth a watch and unseen for its time. The story plot and suspense will keep one at the edge of the seat. Kamalhassan at was at his peak when this movie was released.

The music by Vidyasagar was great and scintillating and so was the cinematography. The movie's main highlight was that it follows the western trends and fads of the early 90s and fusing theme so well a thriller story that is unprecedented in a south movie at that time

well worth the effort
