Simply Fabulous
1 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie has everything to be enjoyed, especially wen i saw the movie for first time i was surprised to see that even Tamil cinema has the talent to make movies like this. The background scenes of old madras and costumes designing and many more things are outstanding in this movie. Its a great family entertainment and a movie which has to be really appreciated. This movie is just a new milestone in Tamil cinema. Amy Jackson steals the show with great performance of Arya. The movie has everything, patriotism, Romance, Comedy and of course Action- the wrestling. It gives you an essence of old madras and present Chennai in a very beautiful way. Well, this movie is something which will always have its impact for the movie lovers in Tamil cinema. Watch this movie without missing a single scene and this will be the best movie of the season.
