One of the best scripted cop thriller
4 September 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I was Dumbstruck when I saw this movie at theater. M.Raja has indeed grown a long way from being a 'remake' director to his 'own make' director. The base script is usual one - good vs bad. But the way it has been scripted especially the bad part, deserves standing ovation!

PROS:

Aravind Samy - dashing stylish villain is everyones favorite and he doesn't disappoint you ! This villain is very unique! He didn't lay his hand on the protagonist at all! not even for a single shot. He carried the bad role in a subtle but powerful manner! You will surely fall in love with this character!

Thambi Ramayyah - humour is different from comedy and he is the trump card in this movie who keeps on giving us some enjoyable part with his innocence.

Jayam Ravi - He worked very hard for this movie! It is evident from the word go itself. This is a tailor made role for him and he did exceed the expectations.

Atlast, Raja - scripting a detailed cop thriller with pacey screenplay is very difficult and he succeeds very much here!

Very good movie after Thuppaki which should be watched in theaters purely for its excellence in story telling!

This is a smartly made movie though not a genius film!

Kudos to the whole team! Very happy to watch a very good thriller.
