This movie is one the most stylish,slick and fast moving Tamil movie ever made!
One of the best gangster movies i have ever seen! Didn't think an Indian regional tamil movie would be so good...rate the movie UP THERE! Rajni's style and acting in this movie is one of the reason why this was a success! The acting of the villain Raghuvaran was fantastic! Directed very well...music is also superb...even though the background music sometimes is a rip off from "The Terminator" its done very well by the music director Deva. The whole Autorickshaw driver who was a big Don in Bombay is a fantastic story so the heart of the movie is the story.The slick way this movie has been taken is excellent.Rajni always does something special for each movie he does like say something or a movement like a sign or symbol and in this one he does one of his most famous styles..
Watch it for Rajni's greatest movie!
