A universal human tale reflecting real and non-real.
20 September 2015 | by jigishvkmSee all my reviews

Saw this movie three times and still it continues to be my personal favourite.I want to see it once again on the day of its home release ie. 2nd October which is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi.

Why should I love this movie? In many ways it reflects and relates me on the screen. The protagonist Mahendran and Maya his love force me to remember many things in my personal life and the life of my country as well. Mahendran and Maya turns to be my own reflections in many ways with a lot many dimensions. The journey of Mahendran in search of Maya turns out to be a journey in search of his own truth and the truth of his country as well. Finally the film turns out to be a universal human tale revealing the real and non-real. That's all.
