Analysis of the film

Sandeep Kishan, who plays the lead role, has worked hard for the film. He is intimidating in every action scene. Kudos for that. Divyansha Kaushik, the heroine who plays an important role in the story, has given a flawless performance.

Gautham Menon, who plays the villain has given a strong performance. Vijay Sethupathi who comes in a cameo role has set the story strong. Similarly, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar has done what she can in the role given to her. Ayyappa P Sharma and Anushya Bharadwaj’s performances are okay. The other cast in the film fits in the given characters perfectly.

This is a romantic action story but there are many things that are lacking in this movie. The screenplay lacks momentum. There may be fight scenes in the film, but it is only thing that we can talk about.

Hero is strong but his character is not strong enough for the story. This is the biggest minus point for the film. Many scenes that should have been applauded have gone awry. But the unexpected twist at the end takes the film to the second part.

The cinematography is excellent. Sam C.S. Songs dint work out. But the background music works well. Editing is good. Fight scenes are choreographed well.


  • Sandeep Kishan and Gautham Menon’s combination.
  • The plot is good
  • Cinematography is excellent


  • Screenplay is dull
  • Heroine plays an important role but her character is not written well.
  • Music could have been better

Verdict : Overall, Michael will be a treat for fans who enjoy action sequences.
