A masterpice in Tamil film industry
10 November 2018 | by kirthi-lsvSee all my reviews

This movie is one of Kamals master pieces in Tamil cinema. Kamal Haasan an unconventional actor cum filmmaker has taken a native village subject to his plate and nailed it with his brilliant performance and screenplay. P.C. Sreeram cinematography blended with the legendary maestro Ilayaraja music is a delight in the movie. Director Bharathan makes sure with his making style that this is not a regular commercial movie. Kamal Haasans screenspace shared with the legendary Shivaji Ganesan is commendable. Nasser as an antagonist and his spectacular performance in the movie will make us to feel he was competing with the other two legends. There were other notable performances from actors Revathi, Gauthami and Kaka Radhakrishnan in the movie. All these factors made this movie a blockbuster and also remains a classic cult in the Tamil film industry.
