The Cast

Jai appears as an angry common man and he has done justice to his role of a person who stand up against corruption. Though Surabhi doesn't have much scope in this film she looks gorgeous on screen, thanks to the make-up artists and designers.

Karunas has done a meaty role and he has done it perfectly. The Villain of this film. Maarimuthu who appears as a politician has given a brilliant performance and his dialogue delivery and body language blends perfectly to his character.

The Team

Director Manimaaran who gave an outstanding film through his debut venture Udhayam NH4 has not impressed us this time with this political-thriller. The screenplay looks dragging and doesn't keep the audience engaging. Cinematography by Velraj was outstanding and he truly needs an appreciation. Music by Vivek & Mervin is yet another highlight in this movie.

Bottom line - The director hasn't given anything new but it is one time watchable for the lead actors performance.

Certified Fresh - No!
