The Cast

The entire cast in this thriller has given their best. Talking about the individual performances Vidharth as Ravichandran, the protagonist from a middle class family who works as a credit card debt collector has given what is actually expected out of him, clean and neat performance.

Pooja Devariya and Aishwarya Rajesh have limited screen presence but gives strong support to the film. Aishwarya Rajesh's role is worth mentioning, though it is short she gives a bold performance.

Guru Somasundaram who gave a wonderful performance in Joker as a junior lawyer is good while Nasser who plays as Ravi's friend given a neat performance.

The Team

Technically this film is brilliant. Be it the screenplay or cinematography or the designs, everything has been taken care very effectively and has given the best output. The plot and the screenplay holds the film tight and keeps us engaging.

With the nail-biting events that follow up one after the other it keeps the audience stick on to the screens. Maestro's composition provides a good run for the film but none of them gives a huge impact among the audience.

Excellent cinematography that gives us a clear vision. Editing is neat and doesn't disturb the audience.

Bottom line - Interesting thriller that keeps us hooked up the screen with its technical brilliance and engaging screenplay.

Certified Fresh - YES!
