superb play on the big screen
4 December 2007 | by balusmboxSee all my reviews

Wow, i was overcome with Joy after watching a movie like this in South Indian cinema. The whole 2 hour movie consists of only three characters. A professor living in secluded woods invents a drug that could help in fighting Cancer. A lady (Manjula) from a pharmaceutical company comes to buy the rights for this medicine. In the last minute , the prof had to go to near by village. Now she has to wait for the professor, and her company is the Professor's lawyer. They decide to kill time by playing a "Show".

What happens next touches various aspects of human psychology, keeps you busy thinking, makes u laugh, makes u jump to edge of your seat and.... Well, I cant tell u anymore. Please watch the movie.

Surya was awesome as the lawyer. Manjula is decent as the lady visitor. The kudos goes to Neelakanta for the smart screenplay.
