Goofs

In one of the calls made to the commissioner's mobile phone, the protagonist (Kamal Haasan) uses his own mobile phone placed to his left rather than using the array of temporary, stripped down phones that were arranged on his right exclusively to make these fake calls with fake SIM cards. He could have been easily found out during this call itself. See more »

Well if you have seen 'A Wednesday' just forget about watching Unnai Pol Oruvan, its just another remake gone bad.

I have seen A Wednesday and it's a real class movie, fast paced and very good performances by Nasiruddin Shah, Anupam Kher & Jimmy shergil.

I am a huge fan of Mohanlal & Kamal, I consider they are far superior actors than their Hindi counterpart in Wednesday, in fact i consider Mohanlal as the best actor in India and Kamal comes close to him and he is the next best along with Mammootty.

So my expectation sky rocketed when i heard that Mohanlal and Kamal are doing the remake of A Wednesday, and guess what, it turned out to be a huge disappointment for me Big Disappointment was Mohanlal, just an average performance by him, his Dialogues in English sounds pathetic, Kamal was OK all in all just an average movie
