A brilliant movie for the time....
10 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie, I thought it was bold idea for the period this was made. Kamal Hasan is at his best, in one of his memorable roles as a young man with revolutionary ideas about life and society (Sanjeevi if I remember right).The story is about Kamal Hasan's friend (played by Sarath Babu) who retracts from admitting the affair with his servant maid that leaves her pregnant (the reason being social inequalities) and Sarath Babu's feminist sister (played by Sumithra) who loves/hates Sanjeevi and his attitude.

The album has some memorable numbers tuned by M.S Viswanathan (Kamban Emaandhaan, Ilakkanam maarudho...). This is one of the many contemporary cinemas (for that period) from the great K.Balachandar and Kamal Hasan combo who dared to be different amidst a bunch of pathetic movie makers.
