A Must Watch..
2 December 2014 | by Balaji M KSee all my reviews

Though I hardly miss to watch any movie no matter how good/bad they are, this is my first review in IMDb and the honor goes to Kaaviyathalaivan.

One reason why one should watch the movie - It's a period movie and it's about "Kootthu" theater artists' lives and how some of them become freedom fighters in the process. Cheers for making it light and yet interesting that the whole audience sit through peacefully and feel contended while leaving the screen. I never felt boring at any point of the movie.

Nasser, Ponvannan, Siddharth, Prithviraj, Thambi Ramaiah... the cast made it even more wonderful to watch.

Heard the songs before watching the movie and I wasn't really impressed, but I fell in love with couple of songs after watching them in the big screen. I loved the choreography of Aye Mr Minor song - Well done Anaika Soti.

Watch it, for it's one of its kind.
