A world class thriller from tamil cinema
30 December 2011 | by manoj-kmk-010See all my reviews

this is my first review.So, if i have said anything wrongly please forgive me.The review is about the movie Mounaguru.Mounaguru is the first movie for the director santha kumar.But it doesn't seems like his first movie.

Arulnidhi acts as a college student in the movie.he perfectly fits for the role.No overactings,he does his work perfect.Big plus for the movie is its screenplay.Editing,BGM score and all are well fitted for the movie.Iniya comes as a medical college student.She also acted good. Main hero of the movie is its story.The director gave Beautiful life for the Beautiful story. John vijay who acts as villain gives us a face of a brutal cop.He gives his best to fit the role.Movie also has twists,small characters in between.All have performed well.Surely this movie is going to be one of the best movies of 2011. Kudos to whole mounaguru team.
