Storyline

Prasanna (Kamal Haasan) is nursed back to health after a bloody fight by singer Bhairavi (Srividya). The two are slowly drawn to each other and they decide to marry inspite of their age gap, and a past relationship she is still unextricably tied to. In the meantime, Prasanna's father (Sundarrajan) embarks on a relationship with a younger girl Ranjini (Jayasudha). Both relationships are given a new twist by the addition of an unexpected new variable. A couple of daring concepts thrown in, but too much of the standard tamil film melodrama and reliance on fabulous coincidences. Written by Joyojeet Pal

One of Vikramaditya's short stories
29 January 2006 | by arjunaadSee all my reviews

Excellent storyline clearly defined by Balachander's direction and aptly portrayed by the incredible cast. Balachander tends to take the roots of his stories from ancient Indian epics and history. An excellent director but due to social conditions and his standing in it, he was never able to deliver bold and revolutionary endings to most of his movies that were considered controversial during his era.

He treats his audience to be very naive. This movie gave Kamal Hassan a great chance to exhibit his talent. Major Sundarrajan's acting as usual was not bad. I wish Balachander came up with his own storyline and a bold ending for once. Very strongly recommend to see this movie.
