  • Logical loopholes.

The Cast

The entire cast of this film has done a good job. Jayam Ravi has done a brilliant job, his performance need a special mention. He is the pillar of this movie and his chemistry with his son needs a special mention.

Nivetha Pethuraj looks glamorous and she does what is required out of her role in this flick. Ramesh Thilak and Arjunan gives comic relief at places.

The Team

Technically this film is good. The VFX needs a special mention as it saves the movie though it had a weak screenplay.

BGM composed by Imman could have been better but the songs has worked in parts.

Art Director SS Moorthy needs a special mention for recreating the space set up and giving it a realistic feel.

Visuals by Cinematographer S Venkatesh is brilliant and it captures everyone’s attention. The director has concentrated more on the commercial elements of the movie rather than the serious subject the film deals with. It would have been better if more important has been given to the subject.

Bottom line – A decent film. One time watchable. Go for it ????

Certified Fresh – YES!
