- Second half is a let down.
- Technically not impressive.
- Action sequences looks too heavy.
The overall performance of all the actors in the film is good. Natty Natraj as an ardent Rajini fan has nailed it with his performance. His body language and voice modulation needs a special mention.
Sanchitha Shetty gives a neat performance as a middle class girl. Rajaji gives a good performance while Parvathi Nair doesn't have much to perform.The Team
Technically this film doesn't impress us much. Talking about the cinematography, C. Ganesh Chandra hasn't tried anything new. Music by Natarajan Shankaran is worth mentioning as it goes in par with the periodic story. Dialogues are crisp but the director failed to impress us in the second half. Action sequences looks a bit heavy.
Bottom line - Engaging and One time watchable.
Certified Fresh - YES!
Stars - 2.5/5
