a very entertaining movie
6 February 2011 | by drsnehithmdSee all my reviews

Good story,tight screenplay,decent direction,nice music and excellent acting makes this kamal hassan starrer a must watch. PLOT:Madanagopal/Madan (Madhavan), a wealthy entrepreneur, suspects that his girlfriend, actress Ambujakshi alias Ambu (Trisha) may be having affairs with her colleagues in the film industry. To that end, he hires private detective Major Raja Mannar (Kamal Haasan) to follow her when she goes on a European cruise for a vacation. Mannar accepts, as he desperately needs money to pay the hospital bills of his friend Rajan (Ramesh Arvind), who is afflicted with cancer, and his wife Mallika (Urvashi). Contrary to Madanagopal's suspicions, Ambujakshi is loyal and virtuous; when Mannar reports this, Madan refuses to pay him as his suspicions were unfounded.Disappointed, Mannar to save his dying friend Rajan fabricates a story and tells Madan that she is having a secret affair during her trip. In the process, he introduces himself as a tourist to Ambu, her friend Deepa (Sangeetha) and Deepa's children, and becomes close to the group. A good comedy which has its heart in the right place.Trisha is pretty and has performed well but the real strong performances comes from madhavan and sangeetha.Last but not the least kamal hassan as usual is the best.After the badly done movies like dasavatharam and aadhavan,k s ravikumar has returned with a winner.
