30 years life story of a Ordinary man
16 October 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Another masterpiece from Cheran (Director of Autograph). I can't help wondering how Cheran took this subject. The main story is nothing but a 30 years life story of an ordinary man and his family. Its hard to find a movie so real and true to heart.

Raj Kiran is the main character in this film. This film is surely an life time achievement for him. Raj Kiran runs a printing press in the movie and has two sons who he needs to bring up. How he brings up the two children sacrificing everything he has and how his children reciprocate for his gestures is the story of the film. Cheran plays the role of the second son with much ease.

Many portions of the cinema would look as if shot in a candid camera (looks just real) and not as if someones acting from the script. Music is unobtrusive.

Though the film wouldn't bore you, it would have been better if the film had been cut to 2 1/2 hours or so.

Definitely an amazing film and another masterpiece from Cheran.
