Awesome movie
15 July 2012 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is an awesome movie. Great effort. Hats off to Selvaraghavan and GV Prakash for wonderful BG. No directors dare to take this kind of concept. I still don't understand why people say bad about this movie. Movies like this should be encouraged, its not love and action movies I expect. Actors did a good job too. The history says that Pandyas were the real reason for the downfall of the Cholas. Cholas ruled the southern India including Sri Lanka as well as part of Malaysia, Burma and Vietnam. If few directors like Selva can research more on that and create movies on old tamil life and history I would love to see it. I also expect a sequel where in the Chola king takes revenge on the Pandyas.That will be really interesting. My best wishes. I recommend this movie.
