Kamal at his unbearable worst
11 January 2002 | by chembaiSee all my reviews

This is the kind of film Kamal should have steered clear of, but instead he revels in it. Simply unbearable as the smart-alec professor, Kamal's character is in terrible cliche mode right from the word go. Gautami is sweet, as always, perhaps one reason you should sit through. Music by Mahesh sucks.
