Now what happens??? at last does Bodhi Dharma's talent are brought back in Suriya and are they protecting India from this Deadly virus attack???? Is the rest of the story with some good visual effects ,Music Direction and screen presentation.
The music score by Harris Jayaraj is exceptional.
The way the 6th century Chinese village is been brought out in the screen is awesome.
The Visual effects add the perfect flavour to the movie.
Hats Off for the efforts made by Suriya , A.R. Murugadoss and the rest of the crew to put forth a movie making us remember the forgotten legend BodhiDharma.
Overall the movie is a mix up various movies and games we have already seen and played having same biological war plot... If its not for the BodhiDharma's character then the rest of the movie would be too boring with lack of proper twists and suspense which the movie promises but has not delivered it...
