Trivia

The song 'Cinema Cinema' commemorates the 75th anniversary of Telugu cinema. Archival footage of famous superstar actors N. T. Rama Rao (popularly "NTR"), Akkineni Nageswara Rao ("ANR"), M. G. Ramachandran ("MGR"), and Rajkumar are shown with each chorus of this song. The verse alternates between clips shot of an actual movie crew filming on location, intercut with real-life superstar actor Rajnikanth - who plays a fictional superstar actor in this film - spoofing blockbuster movies such as Zorro, Lawrence of Arabia, House of Flying Daggers, and the James Bond series.

It could have been so much better
10 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It could have been so much better,if they have taken it like the Malayalam film,only rajnikanth is saving this boring flick,because of the poor comedy from vadivel and others...the director should have used the original script,and should not have added extra comedy scenes...mainly by vadivel and livingston.....santhanam comes up with some good crackers..he doesn't disappoint here...pasupathy has done a great job...but his acting often makes us to remember veyil....meena doesn't look like her family is poor...she has over make up...which is not suiting her character...Arvind Krishna's camera is excellent...G.V.Prakash's music is average.....only 2 numbers are good in his tracks..Climax is touching....Kuselan is one time watchable..
