In the film, Kamal plays an 8th century theatre artist and a modern-day superstar. It is directed by actor Ramesh Aravind.
Superstar Manoranjan( Kamal) is insecure and arrogant. He is adored by all. He has a private life. The story takes a turn when Manoranjan is daigonised by severe brain tumor. Now he nurtures a secret wish. He wants to go back to his mentor ( K. Balachander ) and do a film and there by render himself immortal. Thus starts the film within the film.
Though some of the scenes are very touching and engaging, the first half of the movie is a bit dragging. Post Interval, the movie picks up momentum.
It is undoubtedly a Kamal show all the way. The actor Outshines himself as both an ego bloated Manoranjan and a simple Uthaman. Kamal’s screen presence pulls us from many lagging aspects and can be enjoyed only in parts. In short the film is about the life of a superstar with and without a mask.
