Quick Glance

What’s great?

The Cast

Vimal as usual has given a neat and perfect performance. His handlebar mustache and white dhoti were perfect for his character and Anjali as a criminal lawyer has given a wonderful performance. As usual their combination looks perfect. Though Soori’s one-liners keeps us engaged there are times where it din’t workout really well. Radha Ravi as an old fashioned uncle of Vimal has also given an excellent performance.

The Team

Directed by Rajasekhar this film is an usual comedy venture but the director could have made the narration strong instead of handling the subject very light. Cinematography was good and the music goes in sync with the movie.

Bottom line – This is an usual rural based movie. Simple, entertaining and engaging. Onetime watchable.

Certified Fresh – YES!
