A Tamil film with international standards
21 February 2010 | by chandran-dineshSee all my reviews

So i finally got to watch this much talked about film and i was pleasantly surprised. The last few films which won appreciation from the public for some reason disappointed me including the much hyped Subramaniyapuram. But i really enjoyed watching Achamundu Achamundu. Kudos to debutant Arun Vaidyanathan. I finally saw a film without unnecessary songs and dances. I like how they don't have a separate comedy track like most tamil films. The sarcastic humor in the dialogues were a very good touch to this realistic film.

John Shea as the psychopath is very convincing and menacing. Prasanna and sneha put up a great show. Music by Karthik Raja is apt. Overall a very good movie watching experience.
