to put it simply you will identify yourself with each of the three characters presented by shankar
28 June 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

anniyan...the story that reminds me of my own frustrations; a masterpiece to the core reflecting the need for Indian public to think ( at least ) of their basic responsibilities as citizens; not anticipating any major change in their behaviors though. a must watch for every Indian., and in my opinion it rightly deserves the national award for both movie & it's hero. have seen the movie 6 times till now... shankar sir is really great and vikram...too good to be loved by one and all for his histrionics.i always wondered what if god is physically present among us punishing the wrong-doers..the subject of the movie falls in this line..in all of us, if we closely observe, there's an intrinsic desire to be like someone or be someone at different points in our day-to-day life...the protagonist arises from one of this inner manifestations of the base character which is obviously meek like scores of us..you can't expect a subject like this hitting the Indian screens, thanks for the director for taking up a bold risk who has delivered a punch of entertainment along with his greatest asset..that is story-telling.in this movie you will find yourself, the hell, and even the road to heaven too;
