Thalaivar Vaazhga
28 January 2002 | by chembaiSee all my reviews

This film became most famous for being the last one in which MSV and TKR scored music together. MGR is at his swashbuckling best, while Jayalalitha is stunning. The film is a delightful entertainer with all the essential ingredients in the right proportions. Don't miss it.
