26 February 2007 | by leoshiva1983See all my reviews

When i bought the ticket for 24th night show at Albert theatre in Chennai, what is bought was not a cinema ticket, it was a ticket to a place in remote village in tamilnadu called Paruthiyur...Nobody in that village know me or the 1500 people sitting in the theatre...they were living their day-to-day life and we were watching that...Oh...their lives are sad at times...happy most of the times...we felt sad for them...happy for them.....and in the end...we all felt sad..My friends warned me against watching the last 10 mins..i did just that..and iam happy for that...my friends couldn't sleep for the last 2 days...When i came home from theatre...I felt " I just saw the best movie in my life"....
