an lesson on how to deal with a physical handicap
16 July 2005 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

The main character's physical handicap is treated very well.

The friend treats the hero with a hunchback as he would treat a normal person, without any overt sympathy, and even makes fun of it sometimes in a good natured way.

The man with the hunchback carries it off well and there is no hint of self pity.

An object lesson in how to treat a physical handicap and the person with it.

Unfortunately the director has not been able to break away from some clichés and the film runs for longer than it should.

It is watchable and much better than the usual Tamil movie fare.
