A great movie but lacking the Vishwanath touch
19 December 2003 | by karteekmvsSee all my reviews

A good story but the direction surprises me when I compare to his earlier classics like Shankaraabharanam, SwathiMutyam, Swarnakamalam, Saagara Sangamam etc.This movie brings back the golden combination of Kamala Haasan and Vishwanath after 9 long years and Kamal has excelled yet again. Vishwanath appears on screen for the first time and his performance was awesome. The relationship which is established between Kamal and Vishwanth makes the movie what it is. Aamani's performance is laudable (no wonder she has won the AP State Govt. award (Nandi) for the Best Actress) although she dies in the first half of the movie.

Music by MM Keeravani is excellent and maintains the tempo of the movie. All the songs add to the storyline as the 4 lyricists employed have done a superb performance by not letting the songs hamper the flow of the movie. Personally, I did not like the comedy scenes and the villains' depiction. The last part appeared as if Vishwanath has hurried up or given the direction to some assistant.

Overall, a good movie to watch at least for Kamal, Vishwanath and Aamani's performance
