Awesome Flick
23 August 2006 | by venkatraman_r_76See all my reviews

After a decade, Kamal returns as a police office in this new high paced thriller. The movie has crossed really hard hassles until it started blasting on the silver screen and took the audience on a whirl.

With much expectations set amongst all Kamal Haasan's fans - me being one among them, definitely we were not left unsatisfied.

All songs have been picturised very well especially the love song at Manhattan - showcasing the complete day cycle.

A complete treat for any action lover.

Another feather on Kamal's cap.

  • Venkat.
