Heartbreaking tale of unrequited love
6 January 2002 | by chembaiSee all my reviews

No film can beat this one for over-the-top melodramatic romantic kitsch. Sivaji is terrific, Vanisree is gorgeous and there are a couple of great songs. This theme has such appeal that it was done all over again by Kamal and Sridevi in Vaazhve Maayam.
