Star Performance

Performance-wise Siddharth and Catherine did their job well. The rest of the stars had performed as directed.


The movie has a strong script, but the screenplay and execution are not gripping. When the heroine has a disability of smell, we will think that it will lead to some serious issues. But that didn't happen. When the hero is projected as an honest person, we will think that his character will be very strong, but the director disappoints us. The characterization of the stars is not impressive. When we expect a strong role for Siddharth like that of his previous hit movie Sivappu Manjal Pachai, the movie will disappoint us. However, the director has mixed the social issue and the horror and brought someone entertainment. Thaman’s BGM and the cinematography are good.

What's There?

  • The script is good
  • The movie is technically strong and the production value is good

What's Not There?

  • The characterization is not strong
  • The screenplay is not impressive and it is easily predictable


Although the movie comes with a good plot, the screenplay and the narration lacks some depth. If you don't have any movies to watch and if you love any type of horror-comedy, then you can try it once!
