The Cast

Asusual Nagarjuna proved that he is a perfect actor. Though he had very less movements. His facial expressions has ruled out everything. Hats off to you Nagarjuna.

Karthi’s instant dialogue delivery and body language is impressive and can make anyone fall for him. The has done his role perfectly without leaving any traces to complain.

Though Tamannaah had limited scenes, she looks beautiful and her character looks tailor-made, a perfect choice for this film. Prakash Raj as usual gave an outstanding performance. Overall each and everyone has done justice to their role and this has resulted in the movies success.

The Team

Cinematography by PS Vinod has to be appreciated. He has done a wonderful job, each and every visuals look amazing. Dialogues are outstanding and has created wonders on screen. BGM by Gopi Sundar was good but the songs were not places at the right place which in-turn breaks the flow of the story.

Editing by Praveen KL was perfect, but ot could have been shortened for 20min which would have made this movie even more interesting.

Bottom line – A feel good film and a definite treat to the eyes.

Certified Fresh – YES!
