The Kamal Haasan we get to see in “Papanasam”, the Tamil remake of Malayalam blockbuster “Drishyam”, is the actor that made him a legend; an acting idol for many contemporary and upcoming actors.
Not the star he has grown into in recent years trying to don multiple hats – direct, write, sing, and produce – all at once. And it had become a major concern not because Kamal is bad at these things, but mostly because it made the actor we all love overpowered by the star. So when Kamal, in “Papanasam”, showcases what he can do when he concentrates on only acting, plain acting, it’s a treat to watch him on screen, even if it means for three long hours, reports Indian Express.
For those who’ve watched the original, its faithful remake “Papanasam” doesn’t come as a surprise, yet Kamal’s presence along with the flawless ensemble performance of the supporting cast makes it a riveting thriller.
