Upon release in 2001, the film received a very polarizing response from critics and audiences everywhere, who found it difficult to connect with the complicated script and characters, and found the violence, sex and drugs featured to be very repugnant and extreme for mainstream audiences. The technicality, visual effects and Haasan's performance were very praised, however. Over the years, especially with the rise of social media during the late 2000s, the film gained a more positive reaction from the public, who praised the film for its filmmaking style and content. Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino's admission that he was inspired by this film to create the animated fight sequences for his "Kill Bill" films was what incited this reassessment.
15 years following its release, the film was screened at the 2016 Fantastic Fest in US, where it opened to unexpected critical acclaim by all the audiences, most of which were non-Indian Americans. See more »

This was my first foray into Indian cinema. I was very pleased with their addition of musical numbers into all of their movies, but it makes them that much longer. (The song "Laugh" was very cool I thought). Clocking in at three hours, I was told that this is typical of an Indian movie.
The addition of animation was a very cool touch as well, as Abhay goes into drug induced schizophrenia.
A lot like Silence of the Lambs, but their is some grisly violence, but the lead actor does a great job as a psycho killer.
Overall, a long but at times interesting movie. I would give it a 6 of 10.
