Outstanding script, direction, music and background score
5 September 2012 | by svakspSee all my reviews

Watching this title, 2 hours and 45 minutes, and not even a second I felt boredom. This is truly amazing, the title is a true gem of Indian cinema. The movie depicts the many aspects - relationship between a father and son, great spiritual anecdotes based on real life incidents, conflicts of interests in human society.. a complete mixture of all human emotions.. It has love, expectations, tension, failure, life long agony.

Now the music department, 'Isaignani' Ilayaraaja Sir (Hey Ram (2000), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilaiyaraaja) don't need any praise for his works, because what he creates would be magic (as always) and nothing less !! Right from the beginning, the title score begins with a peppy tone and end with a melodious tone depicting void desires and unspoken minds. Truly amazing.. The listener can suddenly identify the change in mood. This movie has more than 6 songs, (each 5+ minutes duration).. and all are indeed great in quality and content. A real family entertainer with human values.
