Avargal is awesome
seenpriyan25 May 2005
Avargal is movie about a lady trying to fight her way to life. Married to egoist in a male dominated society makes married life for Anu a living hell. She tries to live single mothers life working fighting for her rights. She leaves Bombay to start fresh life in Madras, only to find out her ex-husband is the new boss. She fights her way out of obstacles created by her new boss. Kamal is good, Rajnikanth excels , probably one of few movies you will see Rajnikanth act his heart out , Sujatha is awesome, overall a good movie. Appreciate Balachander's thinking for women. The thought is well advanced for a movie well made in 70's. Excellent Music, well acted cast, Good screen play.

So-so

This film had the reputation of being a radical look at the life of a woman, and I reckon it still enjoys relevance, if not in whole. But K Balachander's approach spoils the party, and what could have been a powerful story of a single mother turns into melodramatic bull. Sujata plays the title role well, but I personally can't stand her. Rajini is terrific and Kamal comes up with a gem of a performance. Watch it to get an idea of the kind of cinema that was lauded as radical in the 70s.
