Quick Glance

What's great?

  • • Doesn't create a strong impact because of the same

Kathir is married to Reshmi Menon and is not interested in a daily job. He joins his friend Charlie to become a police informer which is when the problem begins. In order to fix things, the police decide to make him the bait and get the job done but can he escape the crooked people?

The Cast

Kathir did a decent job in his first movie 'Madhayanai Kootam' and he has improved a lot. While his acting skills may need some work, he's done good performance with this movie. Reshmi Menon is apt as she looks homely and cute enough to entice the youngsters. Charlie is the notable performer of the lot followed by others who are police officers in the script.

The Team

Director Anucharan has worked with 'Kaaka Muttai' Manikandan to deliver an amazing script which looks believable. Many events are pulled off from real life incidents which give authenticity to the movie. Screenplay is good except for some flaws here and there while music by K, cinematography by Arul Vincent transport you into the world where it's chaos all the time.

Bottom line – The movie ends before you could complain about its minor flaws making it a worthy package.

Certified Fresh – Yes!

Stars – 3.5/5
