was a milestone for kollywood movies when citizen was released !
21 April 2011 | by jithhtharanSee all my reviews

this movie too had lots of mistakes and craps ! i felt nagma's acting was too much artificial and was not realistic... :(

makeup for ajith not too bad but might have been better... but its OK , with then (2001)... ajith's acting should be appreciated , great try by him !

during first-half couldn't get a clear out sketch of the movie , when moved on to second-half , was made eager to watch out... flash-back was good !

As a whole , citizen was really good... :) good storyline ! was extremely different from other sort of movies in kollywood... when all the other movies were same as love stories , logic-less action , silly family problems and etc...

citizen was a different try ! should be appreciated ! :)
