    Highly negative and damaging theme. Kamal Hasan the aged hero is a maniac on a killing spree because of his bad experiences. He should have been shot by the police in the end. Murdering the bribe-takers is shown as a solution to corruption in govt. services.

    Make-up of Kamal Hasan and Sukanya:I am not sure if they are real or dupes as old people; too gaudy and prevented them from even speaking and showing expressions. Actually they have been disguised to look like someone else. Could not understand why songs had to be picturised in Australia wasting valuable foreign exchange.

    This movie is supposed to be the biggest hit of 96. The make-up for Kamal and Sukanya is done by the same person who did for Robin Williams in mrs.doubtfire. It is sent for OSCARs as the Indian entry. Good music and lyrics. Songs are a big hit.
