Critics Review


Vishwaroopam is Kamal Haasan's most genuine and sincere attempt till date.

Vishwaroopam Review

Vishwa is a kathak teacher whose wife Nirupama wants to divorce him because she's in an extramarital affair. And he's even not Alpha-male. But wait, she discovers her husband is not the simpleton she thinks he is. Saying anything more at this juncture will spoil the plot.(more)
