Brilliant
21 June 2006 | by (Baltimore, US) – See all my reviews

The main reasons to watch this film are Mani Ratnam, A.R.Rahman, and Abishek Bachan.

There is not much of a story but the screenplay is awesome. The way Mani shows the three men from different walks of life meet on a bridge three times and their flashbacks is refreshingly new.

I think it should have been publicized well before they released this film. It deserved a hit.

I have also seen the Telugu version, in which Madhavan's performance is outstanding.

All in all, a new cinematic experience.
