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 »

Unnaipoloruvan is the story of a common man.i haven't seen its Hindi version yet.but the tamil version is brilliantly paced.the story is very realistically told.the screen play is absolutely amazing.also a great acting from the two legends, Kamalhassan and Malayalam superstar MohanLal.there are quite a few emotional sequences in this film.the dialogue is really very well written.editing is very nicely done.chakri toleti has really directed the film well.this is his debut film.allover this movie is very brisk,fast paced and very realistic.In addition the background score by Shruthihassan is excellent.so i give this movie 9/10
