Vijay would not have smiled after the Preview!!
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vijay would not have smiled after the Preview. We went a week after Diwali, despite the negative reviews, thinking other Fans Clubs would have spread such reviews. But the movie proved more than the reviews. Many Weaks , especially the Graphics work. I have not seen such a BAD fight in the recent years. Vijay has delivered his best in Dance . But his Voice modulation is very bad for the Villain Role. Rehman Rocks in the opening song.

This movie is not even worth for DVD's. Being an Ardent fan of Vijay, i expect the best in his next film "Kuruvi" and a strong recommendation - "Dont boast yourself in movies".
