The Cast

Talking about each and every character played by the actors, it truly need a special mention as everyone has given their best of the best.

Let's start with the strong protagonist Vishal. He looks all built and plays his role neat. He looks dashing as a military officer and he gives his best to make his character look real. Both in the emotion scenes as well as in the action sequences. He keeps it clean throughout the movie.

When we have a strong hero, we should have an equally powerful Villain right? Yes, and this has been filled in by our action king Arjun. He is just perfect for the role and fits the need of the script. There are few top of the box scenes between Vishal and Arjun that would be remembered even after coming out of the theatres.

Samantha, the leading lady of this flick plays the role of a psychiatrist and does what is required for her role. There are no over glamorous songs that we usually see the actresses in. Though she had limited screen space her character is well etched.

Robo Shankar gives us the comic relief. He scores really well at places. Delhi Ganesan as Vishal's father gives a commendable performance.

The Team

Technically this film has done really well. Each and every character in this movie is well written and they gives us an impact in every scene. Thanks to the director for delivering a strong message at a very short time. The director has ensured that the audiences stay glued to the screens throughout the film. Thanks for not diverting from the core subject of this film.

Music by Yuvan is an average but the background score is pulsating and it goes in par with the sequences. The pre-interval scene needs a special mention as it stays in our mind for a longer time.

Cinematography by George C Williams needs no explanation, it is simply amazing. The shots are well taken and it doesn't distract the audience. Ruban's editing is neat and crisp.

Bottom line - Must watch. Go for it.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 3.5/5
