Movie of the millennium
21 September 2005 | by shanviSee all my reviews

Said to be the movie of the millennium, as the friend above said it , it is so so great, Rajini Baba Ke Jai.

Only Rajini can do movie like this, & I wonder whether he himself can make a movie similar like this.

Super star ka style to ek dum perfect hey, in this movie it touched the peak, some scenes are breath taking like the first fight in the movie, scene in the medical admission, talk with the IG, Nagma's marriage day, the climax, gundas tearing Rajini's Auto.

Apart from scenes the background score is too great, however the music wasn't so great but still in Super star's movie the music always become magical.

At the end of the Day Rajini is Rajini, millennium ka eki superstar hey, & he is the god for tamil movie fans.
