- Vikram tops in his performance (Body language and modulations).
- Nayanthara looks gorgeous and does a neat role.
- Technically sound.
- Perfect Interval Block (The twist rises expectation)
- Cinematography by RD Rajasekha is top notch.
- Music is a big plus.
- Logical miss.
- Comedy by Thambi Ramaiah fails.
- Dragging second half (Disappoints the audience).
- Editing needs few min of trimming.
The entire cast in this Sci-fi thriller has given their best. Vikram, the lead hero in this flick carried the whole movie on his shoulder. His body language and voice modulation is perfect. Nayanthara and Nithya Menen does their role well.
Thambi Ramaiah has more screen time but his comedy is a let down and doesn't make us laugh much. The villain Love (Vikram again) manages to outshine the lead hero role.The Team
Technically this film is brilliant. Be it the cinematography or the designs, everything has been taken care very effectively and was a visual treat for the fans. But the screenplay is not engaging. Though the director Anand Shankar managed to make it good in the first half but the second half of the movie tests the patience of the audience.
With an interesting twist in the interval block, it rises the audiences expectation but it fails to keep the tempo. Harris Jayaraj's music is a big plus and the BGM adds extra value to the film. Editing is neat and doesn't disturb the audience but it needs trimming.
Bottom line - A decent sci-fi thriller that might have few logical misses. One time watch for Vikram's performance (Akhilan and Love).
