An underrated gem from Bala!!
19 November 2017 | by anand-gorgoniteSee all my reviews

When this movie came out for Diwali in 2001 it was released along with biggies such as aalavandan, Shahjahan, kaasi, etc. It kind of got lost despite getting favorable reviews from critics. This one proved surya can seriously act and he was not here just because he was shivakumar's son. All the performances were riveting, right from surya, saravanan, rajikiran, karunas among others. The climax was just too hard to digest for the audiences of that time. The ending leaves your stunned and stays with you for days. I highly recommend this gem for those who like realistic, hard hitting and gritty movies, definitely not for the chicken heart-ed.
