An unbelievable story
8 November 2001 | by mohsin ali khanSee all my reviews

I haven't seen a movie like that.It is a special movie that will attract every sensible person.If you see this movie,a sad feeling will come in your heart.I will advise those who have not a strong heart that they should not see this movie.The end is so sad that all the night , you will think about the movie.The performance of Kamal Hassan and Sri Devi is outstanding.
