    Happy birthday, Kamal Hassan! And thank you for this masterpiece, gets better each year. That hallucination trip has to be one of the greatest sequences ever, love letters can't get any better than this, ecstasy infused love letter, an obsession with cinema.

    I still remember the very first time vividly, being really excited to watch this but had no clue what this was or who Kamal was, watched a dubbed Hindi version way back in 2001, the Tamil version was…

    Was it worth the hype? Was the movie Good?

    I was a little disappointed and underwhelmed by the movie, I think the film has major issues. The film didn't know if it wanted to be a PaRanjith (DIRECTOR) film or full on Rajanikanth (SUPERSTAR) film, it was stuck in between.

    The film had this opportunity of being…
