The climax was a bit disappointing with the action scenes....but as the previous reviewer mentioned....this is an Indian movie! the director had to compromise if he still has a chance to make this movie a success.
but the fight sequences were suspenseful as well. given gautham's capability of making movies with a tragic ending (kakkha kakkha), you never could guess what was in store!
this is one of the best Tamil movies I've ever seen. unfortunately, i am forced to agree with the previous comment. i don't see it being successful for a typical Indian audience. in fact. even a major section of the audience i saw it with here in Chicago hated it! maybe they weren't really able to relate with it. i think the theme is a bit too mature for an average teenager or a guy in his early 20's to relate with. maybe the movie should come with a PG 25 rating! :)
a pity...but I'm not sure if a typical college going kid will be able to relate with this movie.
but, if you think Tamil movies don't have class...see this one. and pardon gautham for the action sequences at the end. without that, he dint have a ghost of a chance to make this a success! the camera work was superb...it wasn't about special effects, but about brilliantly capturing the life of a typical upper middle class person in tamilnadu...the close up shots were amazing. distinctly different from anything at least i have seen before.
brilliant performances. never knew that even sharath kumar can act! don't miss this. but if you are expecting a typical run of the mill entertainment...save your money and see pokiri...:)
