It would have been better with proper script. This movie may not bore us but if you watch first 15 min of it you will realize its a clichéd tamil entertainer.
28 December 2016 | by ridinbalSee all my reviews

"Your expectations will go down after watching first 15min automatically. Only direction slightly saved us. Dhanush in two forms and trisha's performance will be the only highlight of the movie" My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)

Positives- 1.)Dhanush and Trisha- Both of their performance was superb and it entertained viewers 2.)Fast paced direction and it wont bore us 3.) Good message at end 4.)Cinematography and edits 5.)songs Negatives- 1.) Outdated script 2.)Cliched scenes Is it a must watch? No.

Overall- Just watch it for timepass.

My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)
