:) Remade in 2002 as "Catch me if you Can" :)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Excellent K. Balachander offering - gripping, thought-provoking and ahead of its time, I sincerely hope the remake "Catch Me If You Can (2002)" lives up to the original! Gemini Ganesan plays the charming yet ruthless inpersonator who manages to keep up the charade and the chase until the very end. Look for Kamalahaasan in a minor role before he became the matinee idol of the 80s. All supporting cast do an admirable job (not surprising, since K. Balachander was at the helm) and the pace of the movie keeps one interested until the last scene. May be a good idea to rent this one and compare it with CMIYC.
