    Verdict - Vishwaroop is ek tha tiger minus the masala.

    Vishwaroopam (Vishwaroop)Watch trailerRelease date : January 25, 2013

    Kamal Haasan spends a lot of time on writing his scripts and knows the importance of script writing but when it comes to his own films it always appears that he loses track of what he wants to do. in this film too he is in solid command as an actor and director but when it comes to his writing skills he fails himself time and again.

    Vishwanath called Whiz by everyone (Kamal Haasan) is a classical dance teacher in New York married to Nirupama ( Pooja Kumar showing ample cleavage to distract attention from her lack of acting skills). Nirupama is having a scene with her boss and sets a detective behind Vishwanath . this set up goes on for almost 50 minutes before we jump into spy mode that keeps cutting into a flashback set in Afghanistan and a present day mission to save a big disaster in USA. the keyword is Sesium.

    Vishwaroop is lavish in its setting. engaging to a certain extent but loses the plot mid way thanks to an overstretched screenplay and a villain Omar (Rahul Bose) who is forever in the RGV meets Ajay Devgn scowl mode. Apart from Kamal Haasan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Shekhar Kapur the film suffers from bad casting which makes the film appears unintentionally funny at times.

    There is nothing in the film that deserves to be banned in fact it is has a strong point of view that needs to be seen and encouraged.

    I would take a half baked Vishwaroop any day over any other topical films made in India.

    Word of mouth - Vishwaroop is ek tha tiger minus the masala.

    Rating - *** ( above average)

    Ticket meter - worth 200 bucks
