Turning point in Ajith's Life and career.
13 June 2008 | by madhesh1988See all my reviews

This film is a major turning point in Ajith career and which shown Ajith as a action hero. Music was supportive to the movie. And the song in the fort showed the musical intelligence for both Bhartwaj and SPB, also other songs was melodious too. Lawrance danced in the song later developed as good dancer and director. this was one of the mass hit for Ajith career. now in 2008 most of the actors done more roles like this more than two times in their career but Ajith managed to stop with this one even it was a success, this was a good decision for him and this make him to choose more characters like in Godfather, Billa. he has the ability to do the things in his own style
