The entire cast of this film has given their. Asusual Rajinikanth has given a mass and powerful performance. He has some sentimental scenes and he has blown it out with his outstanding performance. But there are times when one could feel that it doesn’t go in par especially when young Rajinikanth is shown. Radhika Apte as Rajinikanth’s wife has given a good performance, she is indeed the right choice for the film. The character that she played (Kumudavalli) has been delivered well. Dhanshika in her new stylish look has captured the attention of the audience. Dhinesh’s performance is good. Winston Chao as Tony Lee the main antagonist of this villain looks powerful and does a wonderful job. But one could feel that they could have used more ferocious and strong villain. Individually everyone have given their best but on the whole the puzzle still misses something when it is put together.
Techinally this film is outstanding. G. Murali’s cinematography is top class. Music by Santhosh Narayanan is good and it is in place and the BGM is the highlight of this movie. Editor Praveen has given a clean and crisp editing which adds flavor to the whole movie. Screenplay required more
attention and it was a bit dragging.
Bottom line – Its totally a Rajinikanth movie that would definitely entertain the fans and the family audience
