A SriSri Collector's Fav
10 November 2006 | by jaideepak_parvatinaSee all my reviews

An amazing movie from an amazing director. A treat for Kamal Hassan fans. His character of an unemployed, multilingual, straight-forward, honest and a sincere person in the shallow, twisted world based on favoritism and "corporateised" world has been played to perfection. His recitation of SriSri's lines and their timing couldn't have been better. They form some unforgettable scenes in my life. "The omni-potent and the omni-present" referring to hunger and of Sri Devi's confessions to Bharani, the painter and when Sri Devi asks him on what is he angry upon and when SriDevi mutters when Kamal has no change etc..

A must watch for all SriSri fans, Kamal fans and a surprise treat for Balachander fans.
