Best tamil movie of all times.
23 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Any user who regularly follows IMDb and watches tamil movies and are impressed by some quality works in tamil and had watched katradhu tamizh would give it a 10/10 with eyes shut. You got to see the movie to believe it is such a movie. A movie might have a great story but might lack screenplay, music or acting and in other ways also. But can you imagine a movie where everything was 100 % perfect ? Watch katradhu tamizh. Story and Screenplay is pure magic. Acting ... Hmmm There are only few in tamil cinema who gets compared to Kamal haasan. And probably, Jeeva walked with that crown quite easily... He has defined acting in the movie. Music... C'mon... This is the best music you could have ever heard. Yuvan had given some really soul stirring numbers that make you go into a trance. Editing by sreekar prasad makes you feel not watching a movie but something real and cinematography is another feather in the cap. To cap it all, the director is a debutant. Unbelievable. Isn't it ? Watch Katradhu tamizh.

The movie is a great take on the current Indian scenario where rich people are getting richer and poor people suffer due to that and also the frustration and anger that is building on the less privileged people.

This is one of the best movie one could ever see... Just don't miss it.
