Excellent performances!
18 March 2003 | by learnnewSee all my reviews

The movie is a bit preachy but amazing. Suhasini and the famous playback singer S.P. Balasubramaniam (in his debut, I believe) have given tremendously powerful performances. SPB's role will linger in your mind long after the movie is over. The movie has the trademark irony of Balachander stamped all over it. A vintage Balachander movie to watch!
