Kamal Haasan’s two hit films from the 80s are all set to be re-released by Darwin Pictures.

This digitally enhanced version of this film, which originally released in October 1989, is all set to hit theatres in June 2017. The initial plans is to release the film in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

Rangarajan, this movie also won the Filmfare Best Actress Award, which was awarded to Sridevi. The movie is about a lawyer and his lust for a female actor and how he pursues an affair.
