There are twists and turns of the fate shown in the movie. What happens to the girl in the hands of Guna forms the rest of the story.
Kamal Haasan as Guna gives a wonderful performance. The scene showing him circling in the doctor’s clinic with the camera rotating around the room is breathtaking. Roshini as Abhirami is pretty good. Other actors in the movie have given a fine performance.
The totally unbelievable character of Kamal Haasan in the movie has been given too much importance. There are no frank utterances, and there are few words spoken by Kamal Haasan in the movie. Having said that, the audiences may not digest the fact that Kamal Haasan is a mentally ill person on screen.

Guna…a daring attempt in Tamil cinema.
