Sairat

Though I am not a big fan of severe tragic movies there are some tragic movies which are in my favorites list. Movies like Dead Man Walking, City of Angels, Jagten - the Hunt, Spoorloos, About Elly, The color of paradise etc are such movies.

There are some movies which I avoid like a plague as the content is too tragic for me to sit through. Most of Bala's movies fall into this category. After hearing the climax of Kadhal I didn't get the guts to sit through it.
