VELAIKKARAN another forgotten movie which we have seen on television.
25 November 2018 | by arjunflamingfeatherSee all my reviews

VELAIKKARAN is the movie with the plot being forgotten because of the decade since watching this movie but we are sure that it is a story that was simple to view and understand. The movie has an age old connection with the contrary MAHABHARATHA but it has the KARNA and ARJUNA story with both being the archer from their father.
