Goofs

During the flashback, Omar is shown in Afghanistan with his family training his young son to be a Mujaheddin. His son is identifying weapons and ammunition by touch. He identifies a cartridge as 11mm (before correctly identifying another as .38" and not .45"). There is no 11mm ammunition in widespread use, especially by the Mujaheddin. See more »

An alluring experience we do not often come across at the movies from an Indian maker.
25 January 2013 | by (Chennai, India) – See all my reviews

Brilliant film-making. If you are new to Indian films, start with this or if you want to show your non-Indian friend an Indian film, select this action-thriller classic. It takes some time to suck you in but once the ride kick starts you hardly get time to think about anything else. His vision is so majestic and out of the box. Visually stunning most of the time. I would describe this as a film with technically great, with high production value, with a casting perfectly fit, with great direction - good example for great film-making.

Much credit goes to Kamal Haasan. This is another example (After Hey Ram and Virumaandi) why I rate Kamal Haasan along with Maniratnam as the best film maker available in India at present. Vishwaroopam is one of the most intense action thriller I have ever watched. This is the kind of movie we say 'Almost perfect'.

All of us owe a big thanks to the legendary Kamal Haasan.
