Kamal Hasan is the man who always thinks high about the technical standards of the movie, can did once again a fantastic technically high standard movie. This movie should be the best ever Tamil movie came out till date in Tamil cinema history because of its technical sound and having a standard of an international things with it. As an actor we all know that he is the best man in industry and he proved it once again through this film. Tremendous acting as three different characters. Being a director cum writer, after hey-ram Kamal Hasan Written a brilliant script with high thrilling line. Even Hollywood movies too not defines this much of things about USA and Afganistan. His style of making and narration holds the Tamil cinema to next level and make it as an international movie. This movie is the must watch movie and sure it is one of the best movie ever made. Go and watch it for the brilliance of Kamal Hasan. My rating is 10/10. EXCELLENT....
