Overstylized or trying WAY too hard...
7 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

*****/10

I'm only giving it a 5 because I did enjoy almost half of the movie before it started getting too ridiculous. The movie had more style than substance. The story was going all over the place and it was turning into a really bad Akshay Kumar movie from the early 90s. I loved all the actors in the movie but it was the most unrealistic police story I've seen in a long time. It had a lot of potential in being something great. I don't know why so many indians are phrasing this movie as one of the greatest movies. What is wrong with people? I went into the movie expecting that my views would change about recent Indian cinema but it's still stayed the same. If you want to watch a good Tamil action movie watch Kaaka Kaaka.
