After a long wait the much awaited cop thriller is out in theaters. Talking about individual performance of the actors each and everyone in the cast has given their best.
Arun Vijay as Vetrimaaran IPS has given a solid performance. This could be said as his career best performance after his ruthless villain role in Yennai Arinthaal. His body language, Physique and looks is just enough for a stylish cop.
Mahima Nambiar has nothing much to deliver and one would feel that she could have been used well, but her cuteness suits her character.
Abhinaya as Arun Vijay Sister-in-law is the best choice and she has given a strong supportive role as a pregnant girl.
Stunt Silva's action is mind-blowing and Arvind Akash and Vamsi Krishna fits in well as the strong villains.
Thambi Ramaiah's one-liners and performance is good.The Team
Technically this film is well made. Cinematography by Bhaskaran needs a special mention as this is the major plus in the film. The amazing visuals and the tone enriches the whole film. The dialogues are well written and it is another plus in this film.
It is very important to note that the story is an adaptation from crime novelist Rajesh Kumar's work and the detailing that is given to the script needs a special mention as this helped in making the audience glued up to their seats.
Songs are good to hear but could have been better and the BGM supports the movie. Neat cuts by Editor Bhuvan Srinivasan.
Bottom line - A well made medical crime thriller, a must watch for this weekend.
Certified Fresh - YES!
Stars - 3.5/5
