The Cast

The entire cast of this film has done a good job. Sai Pallavi marks a good debut in Kollywood. Her expressions are good and deserves an applause in couple of scenes.

Naga Shaurya gives a subtle performance but his character could have been given even more detailing.

RJ Balaji's comedies dint work well and it looks annoying at places.

Baby Veronica is impressive and looks cute.

The Team

This film is technically good. Sam.C.S' background music needs a special mention as it worked out really well and went in par with the film.

Screenplay needed little more work and Anthony's edit kept the movie in the right pace.

Visuls are good and thanks to Nirav Shah for giving it a pleasant feel.

Bottom line - Go for it with your family.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 3/5
