The Cast

The entire cast of this film has given a brilliant performance. Sivakarthikeyan gets into the shoes of the character that is given to him, it could be said as his career best performance.

Fahadh Faasil makes a stron debut in the Kollywood industry and he makes a mark with his excellent performance.

Nayanthara looks great and has scope to perform in first half of the movie.

Prakash Raj has done his role well, so does Sneha. RJ Balaji gives his best once again. Vijay Vasanth comes in a small role and gives his best.

Sathish, Robo Shankar and Thambi Ramaiah evokes laughter at places.

Rohini and Charlie as Sivakarthikeyan's parents gives a neat performance.

The Team

Technically this film is brilliant. First and foremost thanks to the director for choosing such an interesting concept and delivering it without making it very preachy.

One would definitely realise that soo much of research is involved in making this script 100%. The marketing statergies are well analysed and explained in a way that it reaches out to the common man.

Dialogues are well written. It is sharp, strong and hits the right chord.

Art direction needs a special appreciation as the team has set the northern part of Chennai very well. Cinematography is excellent and each and every scenes have been captured very beautifully.

Songs are good but it could have been much more better. BGM stands tall as it raises the total emotion of the scenes.

Editing is neat and crisp. The length was a little issue.

Bottom line - Strong writing and the performance of the lead cast makes it a must watch.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 3.5/5
