User Reviews

A movie worthy of watching, though not original.
19 May 2011 | by stivaSee all my reviews

I saw this movie recently, and surprisingly I am impressed by it. Simbu has finally done the best movie (other than Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa). Now he can proudly say that he has talent and he can sure well act and do character based movies. Many people think it is remake of a Telugu movie, though in reality both of these movies are remakes of the 2004 academy award winner Crash. The director has done an excellent job in adapting the story to our Indian culture. Just like Crash, the characters intertwine at some points with many subplots and themes involving judging others, racism, religious discrimination, power and other horrible things that plagues this world.

The movie has a good screenplay, good music and light comedy thrown in here and there. A complex story from South India, it is and that's saying something as it never happens normally and if it did happens usually they suck. But this one's much better.

A movie well worth watching. Though, I still think that nothing can top the 2004 Best Picture Academy Award Winner, "Crash".

I give it 7.8 out of 10.
