A film with a strong message :)
12 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

DHONI is a film that will surely manage to kindle the emotion in you. I generally don't believe in the concept of actors turning into directors , but Prakash Raj as a director truly surpassed the actor in him by a large manifold. It is a wonderful attempt of showing the bitter reality of the emotional trauma which both parents and students undergo due to the present education system.Even though the second half of the film turned out to be predictable, Prakash Raj managed to end the film with a strong message. When there are too many good things, its not wrong to ignore the small issues. Tamizh Cinema is heading in the right direction.This is a movie that is sure to leave an impact. Thumps up ! Must watch film :)
