best tamil movie ever
14 March 2007 | by rebel_iconSee all my reviews

the movie stands out in every bit be it the theme, direction, dialogues, music and acting. i have heard about the movie from a lot of people but couldn't get a chance to see it. but when i saw it was truly outstanding. a movie way ahead of its time. the story revolves around Manju(Sripriya), a girl who loses faith in relationships with men(due to past experiences) and consider men to be chavnistic in their attitude and the way Arun(Kamal) is intrigued by her character. Manju's boss Rajini is awesome in his role as a boorish person. the music is a class apart composed by none other than the maestro ilayaraja. rudraiah should be commended for this audacious and awesome movie. the only detraction might be the use of too many English catch-phrases which at times are sweet but gets a bit too much as the movie progresses. anyways the movie is a must see for all those dying to see a good tamil movie. futuristic. bold. gripping. that should sum up the movie.
