Did You Know?


This film introduced the now-celebrated trademark "Super Star Rajni" graphic title card, which went on to be used in its original form in all of Rajinikanth's Tamil films till 2002 (with the exception of his films released in 1993). Since 2005, alterations of this card (such as in 'Chandramukhi' and 'Kabali') or a new unique card and accompanying theme music were used in all of Rajinikanth's films. This trademark trend of Rajinikanth has inspired almost all major stars from all South Indian film industries to follow with a unique title card reserved for their names in their movies, since the mid-90s. While the original title card's usage was ceased with the 3D update in 2005's 'Chandramukhi', it makes a comeback in a more compact remake in his 2016 film 'Kabali', albeit possibly with a different theme track.

Great Story
10 February 2008 | by brkspeed-1See all my reviews

The stories in Indian cinema are often rehashed versions of older ones with familiar themes and predictable conclusions. Well this movie is no different. Two childhood friends become bitter enemies as they grow into successful businessmen. Their friendship is slowly tested, strained, then broken. One is a quintessential good guy and the other is guided, like a puppet, by a malignant force. There are incoherent (out of context) song and dance numbers and cheesy fight scenes.

But what makes this film is good despite its molding. The casting is perfect for the roles and despite its technical simplicity, it does what it wants to do quite well. The narrative is beautifully constructed. The acting and dialogue may seem contrived, but this is Tamil cinema at it's finest -- trying to appeal to the masses. Don't judge this on Hollywood standards or intellectualize it like in Universities. This is archetypal Tamil cinema with a superb plot for a 1992 film. The story in itself, with adequate comedy interspersed, makes this film irresistible.
