- Vijay Sethupathi's performance.
- Dialogues have been written well.
- Plot has been neatly handled (Sensible and engaging at the same time)
- Flashback adds comedy and it entertains.
- D Imman's songs worked out well.
- Script looks templated (Usual action masala)
- Too many sub-plots (Confuses the audience)
- Logical loopholes.
- Lakshmi Menon looks out of place (Especially in the Romantic portion).
Vijay Sethupathi, as usual, didn't miss to miss us all with his performance. His daredevil acts in the mass action subject have been carried out sensibly by the actor. This is definitely not his best.
Lakshmi Menon does her role well but doesn't fit in well. She is a huge let down especially when it comes to romance portion with Vijay Sethupathi. One would definitely feel that the girl who comes as Vijay Sethupathi's childhood crush looks much prettier.
Kishore, KS Ravikumar, Harish Uttaman have given what is needed for their role.The Team
Apart from few logical loopholes in the script, the film had beautiful songs that have worked out really well. But the songs could have been used well. Visually it was good and the editing is neat. It is easily predictable because of its use of the usual action masala template.
Bottom line - One time watchable for Vijay Sethupathi.
Certified Fresh - NO!
Stars - 2.25/5
