adhu opinions ellam kedayadhu. it is like a factual description of what happened before and after the blasts. you can hear real names like Vajpayee, Advani, Dawood. I donno if it is going to be uncut version of it in the theater. Lets see, its releasing in Inox today.

I donno what were the exact reasons the movie was held up for. The name references were my guess, BJP was in power when this movie was made. They shud've used their political power to suppress this movie from being released. I saw the theaterical version 2 days back, apart from a few words that were beeped out, visually the movie had nothing missing from what I saw it earlier.

Mani's movies are'nt this serious and factual-like. He makes use of the current situation to make a commercial movie. Iruvar was the only bold attempt when eventually got butchered by 2 hours and sent out.
