A brilliant and touching story, with a great message.
8 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I would like to warn you that this was the first Tamil movie I have ever watched, but it was indeed a real treat. The movie is presented mostly in terms of flashbacks, which have been artistically done. The story revolves over a silk weaver in Kanchivaram and his family, during the advent of communism in South India.

Prakash Raj (the protagonist) has played his role fantastically and the viewer is bound to condone his faults and his crimes, as the director weaves a strong emotional bond with the protagonist. Shriya Reddy plays the role of a house-wife to the best. All other performances (save a few) were top notch, especially the daughter.

The movie is extremely emotional and one would get deeply saddened at the end. But, Priyadarshan has brought out a few morals very well in this movie and has depicted brilliantly how communism infused vigor & courage in the minds of the weavers of Kanchivaram. Although Communism has been shown in a positive light, the essence of the movie doesn't revolve over the Red Brigade and is much more universal.

All in all it is one of the best pieces of cinema from India and definitely one of the best I have seen coming from the South. So do watch it if you can!!!
