The Cast

The entire cast has played a fair game. Arun Chidambaram, the director of this flick who also played the lead role in this flick needs lot of training especially in dialogue delivery. Yog Japee gives an impressive performance. Jiya Shankar fits well in the character and she gives a neat performance as an urban girl. Ilavarasu as a father delivers his best.

The Team

Technically this film is good. Cinematography by Selvakumar needs a special mention as this is the major plus in the film. The angles and the tone enriches the whole film. The script could have been structured well and it lacks professionalism. The amature way of handling the script made the whole concept fall out. Few dialogues in this film are laudable. Songs are good and the background score is perfect for the film.

Bottom line - A poor handling of the script with just few impressive scenes.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 2.5/5
