Talking about the performance of all the actors in the film, each and everyone has given their best. Vijay Sethupathi as usual has given his best and this is altogether a different character he has played. He plays the role of a journalist and he fits in the bill well.
Madonna Sebastian performs well but her character could have been given more importance. T Rajendar adds masala and he justifies his role. Especially his combination scenes with Vijay Sethupathi is worth mentioning.
Akashdeep Saighal has made a strong comeback but his lip-sync is a major drawback. Vikranth gives his major contribution in the film at the end. The rest of the cast including Jagan, Pandiarajan and others have given their best.The Team
Technically this film is good. Editing is crisp and cinematography is good. Screenplay is good but it lags in few places making it slow paced. Dialogues are well written and sharp, this has helped the director in conveying the core concept at his best.
BGM is worth mentioning and it goes in par with the film, also helps in the smooth run. The songs by Hip Hop Tamizha is also good and enjoyable.
Bottom line - A bitter truth about the deep rooted politics in media and TRP-driven reality shows has been brought out to light in the best possible way.
