Kamal’s Vishwaroopam was victimized and stood testimony for the status of freedom of expression in the world’s largest democracy. Otherwise, it’s a tautly written, brilliantly performed and composed movie with one of the finest actors in Indian cinema.
Most likely to be a blockbuster, Vishwaroopam seems to have broken all predictions despite its inordinate delay in releasing after the ruckus. Multiplex audiences are giving the much desired weekend push in collections.
Pooja Kumar and Andrea spread some cheer in the otherwise grim action thriller.
