Kamal Hassan is one rare actor who still act in only selected and story oriented movies.And his super stardom has never overshadowed his movies.' Anbe Sivam'(English: 'Love is God') is a Tamil movie released in 2003 and was written by none other than Kamal Hassan.Even after being a big fan of this actor(remember,i told actor..not star) i didn't watched many of his notable movies.I watched this because someone recommended me to watch this movie when i was discussing 'ancient aliens' conspiracy theory with him.
Movie starts when Mr.A.Aras(Madhavan) who is young, arrogant and thinks he knows everything about the world,meets Mr.N.Sivam(Kamal Hassan),a wise-cracking handicapped communist at Bhuvaneshwar airport when all flights are cancelled because of bad weather.They both stuck with each other and had to travel to Chennai through road&rail.Whole story of the movie is about their adventurous journey and about the concept 'god'.
It is not a serious movie,Kamal make you laugh at moments.And what many don't know is, the film is based on Kamal Hassan's personal views on Theism.The movie has a beautiful concept about god.I really loved it.And the main protagonists Kamal hassan and Madhavan acts really well.Watch out for an amazingly shot bus accident scene and an interesting character of a thief in a train.This movie is said to be inspired from John Hughes' 1987 American film 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'. I will say it's a must watch movie for all movie goers,and others who wanna know about god.
If you don't understand Tamil language,watch it with English subtitle.It's available for download.Or buy a DVD(with subtitles) which is very hard to get because it's a regional movie.If you cant find the torrent,put a request in comment box,i will mail the link to you.
