Star Performances

Selvaraghavan has tried his best. However, in some places, his expressions could be more satisfactory. Natty did his best, and Radha Ravi did the given job well.


Mohan G's films carry some social message, and this film is no exception to that. The film's first half is okayish, but the second half is not impressive due to weak writing. The scenes are very much predictable. Some messages in the film look too preachy, and some are welcomed. Selvaraghavan hasn't shown many expressions, and the same is followed for this role. Yet, he did a good job in some places. The cinematography is good, and it helped the script in elevating some scenes. The BGM is neat and helps the emotional scenes get the hype.

What's There?

  • Decent performances by the lead actors
  • The cinematography and music are good

What's Not There?

  • Predictable scenes and the script needed a better writing
  • Some preachy messages


The film comes with some preachy messages that could've been avoided. If you are a fan of Mohan G's films and also interested in watching social message concept movies, you can try this film once!
