A repeated Vijay movie
29 May 2008 | by sree_buvanaSee all my reviews

well,i cannot say much about this movie.its another Vijay movie. Vijay is playing as Kuruvi,little did he know whats the exact meaning of Kuruvi,he chases after Trisha for a diamond.and like every movie there's a head villain and followed by other small villains. Trisha is coming as a Malaysian girl,there isn't anything for her to act in this movie!!The hero tries to save the poor kids and people from the big villain whom tries to slave the people.(i wonder whether such places with slaves exists in 2008!) Another thing which made me watch the movie is Vivek's comedy. if not for that , i would have slept. Kuruvi ?what is the meaning of that in this movie?!!
