Trivia

The character of Wisam is a reference to Arjuna in Mahabarath, more specifically the Virata Phase. This is a period in Mahabarath when the Pandavas had to spend their last year in exile in disguise. They live in a different country where they can be recognized. Arjuna takes the guise of a eunuch and teaches dance and song to the girls of the king. This is what exactly Wiz's character does as Vishwanth. See more »

Goofs

In one scene a helicopter is shown flying just above a forest with dead trees and fallen leaves. But there is no movement in the trees or leaves as the helicopter is flying. See more »

Gorgeous, impeccable
26 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Long I had a wound, when there'll be a Tamil movie on par with Hollywood. Vishwaroopam lives to heal that wound. A perfect action, thriller experience right from the start. Filming in Afghan, US marines in choppers, RAW - M16 modus operandi, screenplay, action - all in one, brilliant film making. There was just one song at the start, then it was all action and thrill. Kamal impeccably played the Bharatanatiyam teacher role, with feminist moves, body language. The shame is that Tamilnadu Govt. has banned this movie, our own people are pulling him down when he attempts to scales skies. The narrow minded section of the Indian society cannot digest the truth, they are sleeping in a deep well where there's no light. Shame, shame people, shame on you protesters.
