Worth Spending - Best of its type
15 November 2015 | by (Marthandam,TN,India) – See all my reviews

Minimally the movie is a must watch experience for all class cinema lovers.Thriller,Action,Some piece of Social message.

The movie has quite good characterization from the 1st level characters to the final level supporting characters are perfectly and beautifully mannered.

Aravind Swamy portrays the villain character as 'Never before in Kollywood'.From his mannerism,body language,attitude he has shown much of evilness more than hat of the script wanted which suits the character perfectly.

My favorite scene of the movie would be the pre-climax sequence where Siddarth Abimanyu (Character) hears to his father's words,The scene in the investigation room.

The movie totally emphasizes our Indian society and a battle of a 'Single Man'(Thani Oruvan) who want to protect the society and a 'Single Man' Who knows only about 'Money'

However, you have shown interest in the screenplay.The message of the movie will catch you surely! Go for it!

There is no speed breaker & a perfect song placement The Villain's character is well designed and more special from other negative characters of Kollywood Cinema.This movie is totally different from M.Raja's earlier movies.Unexpected turnings and easily catch-able screenplay.The best movie of this kind "GOOD vs EVIL".You'll have no reason to hate this film.

This movie is a 'Gem Of Tamil Cinema'. Must watch movie for all movie lovers.Don't Miss this Roller Coaster Ride :)
