Mani Ratnam's Gift To Nagarjuna
10 October 2018 | by hguy1See all my reviews

If you have to see one movie in your life, this should be it.

It has comedy, love, horror, emotion - everything.

It begins with the hero winking at his senior citizen vice-chancellor. Then he asks his doctor to marry him, who very sweetly says she will ask her husband and answer.

But impending death. He can't manage and goes alone too Ooty. Here he meets this girl. Wait a minute. why have we never seen this girl again.

God ! what a girl. More a devil in disguise.

Then some very beautifully done songs later. The end.

There is a comedy track that was added later as the movie was a bit on the heavy side. It has nothing to do wit the main story.

The movie was made direct in Teluge. A first for Mani.
