Nagesh's tour de force
8 January 2002 | by chembaiSee all my reviews

It requires guts to make a film with such an unusual theme, but then K Balachander has never been short on guts. Nagesh plays a waiter who becomes a film star, who falls in love with KR Vijaya but loses her to his best friend. The film rest on the able shoulders of Nagesh, who displays his awesome acting prowess in every frame. The screenplay is taut, and though there are cliches here and there, when the film ends you feel satisfied at having spent 3 entertaining and thought-provoking hours. Truly a classic.
