The Best of Shanker
21 October 2005 | by chakkaravarthy_81See all my reviews

This is one movie which everyone saw without any fanfare, nor with any preconception, which proved to be a great asset for the movie. I strongly believe that this movie changed the trend of all the other Tamil movies later. This brought light to the career of Arjun, who did a GREAT JOB as the education deprived youth, hence goes on looting Rs.50 cores to build a Engineering + Medical + Law college for the deprived youth. the concept was very ideal in the prevailing situation. The lead lady of the movie Madhoo ( all the heroines of Shanker's earlier movies lead lady were Maniratnam Movies Lead ladies - except Nagma) also did a pretty good job. This movie brought the emergence of Indian Michel Jackson Prabhu Deva ( who was later cast as the hero in Shanker next movie "Kadhalan"). The music and songs were added highlighted of the movie. The Climax of the movie was very touching. A great movie indeed. The sad part is that all the other Shanker's movie which involved politics had a great resemblance to this movie. So I still emphasize that this is Shanker's Best movie.
