Great movie
20 September 2015 | by breakingsplattersSee all my reviews

It's an amazing movie for those that understand the deeper concepts within the movie about spirituality and the layman desires. Songs, action sequence is just included as a distraction. At the core of the film, it is great as it talks about the real struggles between man and the divine.

It is not a masala entertainer but actually a movie that make people think deeply. Highly recommend for people who think and reflect. Goundamani's comedy is amazing and Rajini kanth as Baba is superb. Since it is the actor's story, screenplay one can see a very honest portrayal. This movie is not for the average movie goer but it is still a great movie.
