Aparichit(Anniyan)- the perfect entertainer!
6 December 2014 | by (india) – See all my reviews

I have seen the Hindi version Aparichit and I would review it only. The film is so good that I would surely buy the DVD of the movie if I get a chance. The film is a clean entertainer with several messages for the society.

It's the first movie of Vikram that I have seen. He is just amazing! The fights,music, dialogues, story and screenplay are awesome. The way Aparichit punishes the wrong doers is simply marvellous! Aparichit(Anniyan) is like a superhero that has come to save us. The conversion of Tamil titles in Hindi throughout the entire movie needs to be appreciated. Shankar has really proved how a story can make superhero.

On the whole,Aparichit(Anniyan) is a complete family entertainer that will be appreciated by all. Go,watch it,for sure you will be entertained!
