Kamal Haasan's great transformation is a real treat.Magnificent!
Kamal Haasan,the person who I regard as the best actor in Indian cinema ever,added another great to his list.The story is a cliché that we all know,but the screenplay and execution is simply seamless and mind boggling.The first thing I had all my praises on was the cinematography by PC Sriram,simply eye catching and beautiful.The use of color and tone is unbelievable considering the year of release of which was 1989.The camera angles made the movie look very grand and high budgeted.Hats off to him.The second thing that pulled me in was the timeless music of maestro Illayaraja.The music in the film was not everywhere,but it was present in the important scenes.The use of music in the suspense and the comedy scenes were the best.The songs in this film were amazing and the sets of the were really realistic which was a big bonus for the film.The use of modern music at the time was fully utilized by Illayaraja and turned out to be an impressive piece of work at the end.The other two people that full credits has to given is B Lenin and VT Vijayan.Their editing for this film was absolutely amazing and matching the screenplay of the film.Coming to the cut and throat of this film,the Universal Hero,Kamal Haasan.His performance in this was excellent.He played three characters in this film,and the probably the toughest he has done by far is the dwarf character who is Appu.A century has changed,yet nobody can find out the secret of the making of this character.It is no doubt that a any character can be created by CGI with today's technology,but this character that was formed in that time frame was a shock to whole cinema industry in India.The making of this character is well kept secret till today by the makers of the film.Putting aside the concerns of the making,Kamal Haasan completely transformed himself into the character,I could feel this character's emotions,feeling and sentiments throughout this film.The other two characters was the normal Kamal Haasan that we can see,but he shows a variation of the Tamil dialects used by three different characters in the film which is a huge task to pull off.Other than Kamal Haasan,Nagesh did well in a unusual character despite given a less screen space.The other standout performer was Janagaraj in another unusual character for him.His comical timing in this film made the film more fun and enjoyable within the serious tone of this film.This had to go down to the dialogue writer Crazy Mohan.He really understood the screenplay of the film and set dialogues with good timing and counters.Hats off.The screenplay which was also written by Kamal Haasan shows why he is regarded as one the best actors ever.The screenplay of the movie was smooth as an unpolluted river and the structure of a scene is so well set that the movement of the scenes were not felt by the audience.No review of a good movie is complete without complimenting the efforts of the off screen hero,the director.Singeetam Srinivasa Rao did an excellent job narrating Kamal Haasan's story in a interesting way.Overall,this film would be a great treat for movie lovers just because of its amazing narration.This is definitely not Kamal Haasan's best,but still one of the best Indian movie's ever created.Magnificent!
