a must-watch movie...
21 September 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of a milestone movie, which did not do the best at the box office. But still this film can be applauded for its screenplay, music and message to the society. The plot revolves around how Sathyamoorthy alias Sathyaa (played by the veteran actor Kamal Hassan) is betrayed and used by the local corrupt politicians.

Sathya is a educated, unemployed and middle-class family youth. He and his friends roam around the streets, hangs out at the nearby railways station, goes home at late night. They almost resembled the late 80s and early 90s unemployed youths of Tamil Nadu. Though are unemployed, they have a social involvement, which attracts the local corrupt politician (played by Kitty.. voiced by the well known singer SP Balasubramainum) and his assistant (Janakaraj). Sathyaa misunderstands them as good people and does everything that was assigned to him without any questions. After an event, he understands he has been used and played by the corrupts.. what he does as a payback is the rest of the movie... !!!

The plot seemed raw and well supported by the all time favorite music maestro Ilayaraja. Still this is the movie considered to be the best of Suresh Krishna.. who is very well known for making commercial movies only.
