Excellent movie about the life of the people of stage drama trouped
6 December 2014 | by (india) – See all my reviews

Never expected such a Technically Brilliant, very Amazing Movie about the life of the people behind the Tamil stage drama trouped... Wonderful acting by Siddharth,PRithiviraj, Nassar and all other. In simple word the whole team done their roles excellently. Very hard work done from whole (each and everyone) team members of Kaaviya Thalaivan project which took them nearly two years to complete this projects successfully... Hat off to Vasanthabalan, ARR and whole team....Also have to appreciate them for their researches (I read ARR done nearly six month research to compose the music for this project). Thanks to Vasanthabalan, ARR and all other team members who are involved directly or indirectly in this project for their great work. Feeling proud after watching this movie.
