Both were at an early phase of their career. It is also an accurate representation of the socially accepted realities that have been normalized at the cost of human life. The film is partly based on real-life Tamil gangster Varadarajan Mudaliar. Vishal plays Kanniyan Poogundran, an eccentric private detective. The usual simplification of the sociopolitical backdrop wasn’t so bothersome in Dil Se. It may not be an artistic masterpiece but it is not bad in that regard either. and Karunanidhi.

Visually, Dil Se is among Ratnam’s top three works. The harsh violence faced by Kokki Kumar (brilliantly played by Dhanush) in his adulthood is hinted as a reason. Apart from the commendable performances, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is the biggest strength to the film. Vellai Pookal is a well-actualised whodunit thriller. Arun Prabhu’s much-hyped directorial debut is a part satirical comedy, part character study of an ostracized young woman. No words can describe Mohan Lal and Prakash Raj’s excellent acting range. Theeran is based on the true incident of a high profile case, successfully handled by Tamil Nadu police in the 1990s. The lead character’s outcast status gradually becomes a prism that reflects the ugly side of the society. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. Aruvi opens as a simple tale of a free-spirited girl. So ensues a series of betrayals from those they called their own, those they believed in and of course those who opposed them from the beginning. Iruvar is a tale of friendship and love, set under Tamil Nadu’s Dravidian political backdrop. It was with Nayakan that they started their journey of capturing slice of life with all its layered features. And the finest film to explore the long-lasting relationship between cinema and politics in Tamil Nadu.

Those who aren’t aware of these giant politicians couldn’t follow many of the muted or cut underlying elements.
Yet, Pariyerum Perumal serves a rare glimpse into the dark cultural and social practices.
The final cut didn’t look as powerful as Mani Ratnam wanted it to be. On Amudha’s insistence, the adopted parents make a trip into the escalating war zones of Sri Lanka.
You are never going to expect it and it will hit you in your non-suspecting face with all its might.
The film gives a subtle, much-needed message about marriage and relationships.
