Goofs

In one of the calls made to the commissioner's mobile phone, the protagonist (Kamal Haasan) uses his own mobile phone placed to his left rather than using the array of temporary, stripped down phones that were arranged on his right exclusively to make these fake calls with fake SIM cards. He could have been easily found out during this call itself. See more »

Clash between the Lords of Indian cinema!
20 September 2009 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Amazing first time direction by Chakri Toleti - totally gripping from beginning to end. I would say it's smart direction as the movie is equally serious and entertaining. Also, apt music by Kamal Hassan's daughter Shruti Hassan. The performances were the most enjoyable from the two leading actors in the movie - Kamal Hassan & Mohanlal. Both share equal screen presence and make every second worth it. Both of them are textbook of acting - one known for his intensity & the other for spontaneity. I have always been fascinated by Lal's acting but didn't expect him to do so well in a Tamil movie & speak the language effortlessly. This is a classic and I feel worth watching multiple times. Rare are the movies that can spread a message and provide fun too and this is one of them.
