Right from the cast, camerawork and music, everything has worked out well for the film. The only thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the slow pace and narrative style which doesn't engage audience into the film as it should.

Quick Glance

What's great?

  • ► Crime thriller genre is refreshingly new

  • ► Arulnithi does his role to perfection

  • ► Aishwarya Rajesh, Robo Shankar, Charlie and the entire supporting cast is right pick

  • ► Camerawork is good

What's not?

  • ► Background music is loud at times

  • ► The quick cuts strain the eye in many scenes

  • ► Too slow with very vague dialogs and description of scenes

A drunkard cop who has lost his family takes up a serial killer's case and tries to find a link between the murders.

The Cast

Arulnithi does an amazing job. Even though, there is no comparison between the original's Prithiviraj, he acts in his own style and brings freshness to the role. The supporting cast is done right with Robo Shankar but making him comical in a serious role is a bad choice. The villain is not the best pick and could have been done better.

The Team

Director Arivazhagan has tried to stick true to the original movie by Jeethu Joseph. He has done it to his level best. But, the movie is good only for those who haven't seen the Malayalam version and for those who may have patience to sit through the first half. Music is good in some places while cinematography should be have been more subtle than being shaky with racy cuts all the time.

Bottom line - A decent entry in crime thriller genre but quite slow at moments.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 3/5
