a masterpiece of indian cinema
8 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

this movie is truly a cornerstone for all kinds of cinematic expression, as far as indian art is concerned. very unfortunate that present day cinema (indian) has been overtaken by crass storytelling and thinly veiled attempts to dump undeserving kith and kin of who's who on the unsuspecting audiences. kamal haasan performs his work beautifully as a struggling but talented dancer who lives( and dies) for his art in a moving portrayal. it must be one of his greatest roles in the past two decades.

i am yet to see another presenter of k.vishwanath's class in movie-making for a long time.technical wizards, yes, but true creators of evergreen masterpieces , hmm..., , i don't think so.

and to think every director(read " son/brother/daughter/sister of .... who has chosen to make the business his fiefdom") talks about his new

" attempt to emulate vishwanath" today with a poker face!!!!

i am sorry but , at least in hindi and telugu cinema, sorry, no ---i think few of you deserve to be there.

this is certainly not a movie to be missed.
