Storyline

The two best disciples of Sivadas Swamigal, the earnest owner of a Drama school, are by design pitted against each other by the guru himself and this create multiple calamities ending in the duo's separation. Years pass by as one finds a good holding and the other wobbles away as a drunk loser only for them to cross paths again when the ongoing Indian Independence Movement gives another chance for the tables to turn!

Excellent Period Drama with extra ordinary performance ...!!!
28 November 2014 | by nell_416See all my reviews

Vasatha balan yet again proves that he is unqiue and sensible director. If you want to know wht is acting juz see this movie all the lead cast gave terrific performance, I thought it would boring period drama but trust me even though duration of movie is bit length I didn't get bored at all. ARR Background score was awestruck perfect BGM and songs, I didn't liked the songs when the audio got released but its nice while you watching the movie you feel perfect songs and placed very well. A great applause to the director to show exact small drama troupe culture and their life. I think some places director compromises himself. A must watch movie ..!!!
