The best Movie
11 February 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I consider "Anbe Sivam" as the best movie of all time. Fabulous story, exceptional screenplay and apt comedy make this movie a treat to watch. It's doubtful if anyone else will be able to make a movie again in the same caliber. Unfortunate that it was not sent for the Oscar's. It's music is riveting and apt for the situation. The characters are brilliant. The way the change of heart occurs for Anbu is perfectly done through the screenplay.Kamal at his best throughout the movie and well supported by Madhavan, Naser and others. It is one of the few movies to have a title that was apt for it's screenplay. It speaks about communism, love, friendship and what not. 10 out of 10
