Quick Glance

What's great?

  • Arrow Icon Dhanush at his best

  • Arrow Icon Kajol’s role is well written

  • Arrow Icon First half is a fun-filled ride

  • Arrow Icon Interval block

  • Arrow Icon Scenes between Kajol and Dhanush, sure to give goosebumps. Pakka Mass with Anirudh’s BGM

  • Arrow Icon Last 15-20 min has lots of surprises in store for us

What's not?

  • Arrow Icon Predictable

  • Arrow Icon BGM could have been better, missing the rock star's presence here

  • Arrow Icon The second half of the movie is flat and is just 60% of the first half

  • Arrow Icon Amala Paul's role could have been written well

The Cast

The entire team has given their best in supporting the movie. Dhanush as usual tops in giving his best performance. The story and dialogues for this movie have been handled by the actor himself and it has been penned well.

Kajol is making a comeback after a long gap in Kollywood and she has done an impressive role. Her character as Vasundhara is well etched and her scenes with Dhanush give goosebumps, especially when it nears to the interval block.

Amala Paul as Raghuvaran's wife gives her best but one would feel that it could have been better as it looks templated.

Ritu Varma has been replaced in place of Surabhi’s role and Soundarya Ponvannan's appearance gives us goosebumps too.

Vivek and Samuthirakani have given their best yet another time.

The Team

Technically this film is good. Sean's songs are good and the BGM sounds less intense and this could be one minus in the film. Yes, sure we do miss Anirudh's presence here.

GK Prasanna's cuts are sleek and neat. Sameer's visuals are good and pleasing to the eyes. Dialogues are well written.

The screenplay is good, the first half is enjoyable and the second half was a bit flat except for the last 20min which was a big surprise and it was a good try.

Bottom line - Raghuvaran is back though less intense than the first part, it would definitely entertain us.

Certified Fresh - YES!

Stars - 2.5/5
