The Cast

Talking about the casting, each and everyone has performed indefinitely well. Vishnu Vishal as Thambi Durai looks vibrant and as usual, gives his best. He has excelled in both the comedy and action portions.

Catherine Tresa looks glamorous and does what is required for the role that is given to her.

Soori as Anna Durai steals the show with his witty dialogues and hilarious expressions. The combination scenes between Soori and Vishnu Vishal is a full-on laughathon.

Saranya Ponvannan as Vishnu Vishal's mother makes it simple and plays her part well. Manobala does a small role and gives his cent percent.

Anandaraj as Dubai Sheik is introduced as a villainous character but evokes laughter with his dialogues and fancy outfit.

Motta Rajendran's last 10 minutes is rib ticklings and brings the whole floor down. He doesn't deliver any lengthy dialogues or one-liners but the crowd will go crazy when he performs the hit numbers.

Aruldoss as a gets an interesting villain character and he does it well.

The Team

Technically this film is good. Sean Roldan's music is a big plus and it has been placed well without affecting the overall flow of the film.

Editing by Sridharan is neat and clean. Cinematography by J. Laxman is good.

Costume designer Joy Crizildaa needs a special mention as she keeps it a simple and elegant.

As of the Story is concerned, it has nothing new to offer and if the logic is kept aside then it definitely gives over the top humor.

Comedy portions are well written and it evokes laughter among all age groups.

Songs have been choreographed well and it needs special appreciation.

Bottom line - Fun-filler entertainer. Go for it! laugh out loud with your Family and Friends.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 3/5
