Anticipation::------After reaching old age amitabh finds talent like him in the form of Young Dhanush, who is deaf and dumb, Amitabh introduced him to the field to act for him, while he dubs for him, But later fame of Dhanush surpasses Amitabh. What happens next??? Watch in theatre!

BGM is very good and looks different from usual ilayaraja and appropriate to today's generation, I wonder why ilayarajaa do not give BGM like this in tamil.
