Excellent inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca.
15 May 2009 | by karthi-rajasekaranSee all my reviews

Even though the underlying story line was inspired from Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca(1940), the presentation of this movie was simply super standard. The way the characters were portrayed and the acting by both Mr. Shivaji Ganesan and Saroja Devi were really incomparable. The music composition was also extra ordinary that every song will reveal mood behind it. I liked the East man color in this movie as it was one of the initial movies with East man color. Nagesh's comedy did its trick as it will always do. Saukar Janaki did a guest appearance but the song in which she appear is an excellent melody. Apart from these actors, there were M.R.Radha as the blackmailer and Ashokan as Soukar Janaki's cousin also was there, who did their job perfectly.
