Star Performance

Once again Dhanush excelled in his performance. He might get an award for his natural acting. His matured acting as a father of the teenagers is fantastic. Manju makes her impressive debut in Tamil and her performance and dialogue delivery are excellent. Ammu Abhirami, Ken Karunas and Teejay have got significant roles to do and they did justice to the roles. The rest of the stars are good.


The script is not new, yet Vetrimaaran has presented it neatly with his gripping screenplay and excellent execution. He has used the stars perfectly and the people, who selected the cast should really be appreciated for their incredible pick. GV Prakash is another pillar of Asuran. The songs are good and the BGM is top-notching. Ammu, Ken and Teejay will definitely have a good career in the future. Dhanush’s transition is incredible. He is popular for his makeover for his roles from film to film and here, he had done it in every frame. The production values are superb and the film is technically sound.

What’s There?

  • Superb performance by the team
  • Screenplay and narration are gripping

What’s Not There?

  • A very few faults are there, which need not be cared


The film is a perfect action film that has impressed all the class audience. With a neat social message and the performance of the stars, the Dhanush movie attracts the audience. Asuran – Outstanding Performance!
