- . A plot line set on the intuition of a guy and gambling in Goa
- . Director's narrative style
- . Yuvan Shankar Raja's music
- . Dhanush's cameo role
- . Slick editing and immersive camera angles
- . Gautam Karthik's performance is average
- . Not the best second half and plenty of logical loopholes
Gautam Karthik is an ordinary guy with Priya Anand as his girlfriend but he has an intuition that helps him win gambling matches. Vivek seeks his help only to end up in the hands of Daniel Balaji who forces him to win games to repay his debt.The Cast
While everyone else including Tapsee and Priya Anand have done a great job, the main star Gautham Karthik is not so strong in his solo scenes. Tapsee could have had more scenes as she got good action potential. Vivek and Satish hold the movie strong with their comical one liners who are also joined by Manobala and MS Bhaskar in short roles while the ending is satisfying because of Dhanush who comes back as Kokki Kumar.The Team
Aishwarya Dhanush has made sure she entertains every class of audience even though the story is about high class gambling. Yuvan Shankar Raja does a great job with the background music while editing and the movie's two hour run time makes it enjoyable. The logical loopholes are there which might turn off hardcore film buffs but it's a good watch nevertheless.
Bottom line – An entertaining story filled with plenty of action and a gripping plotline
