Star Performance

The lead stars performed impressively. Nalinikanth, the yesteryear villain actor plays one of the lead roles and his performance is so natural. Eashwar Thiyagarajan, Pasupathyraj, Eashwar Thiyagarajan, Samuthiraseeni, Durai Sundaram, Sakthivel and Narayanasamy did justice to the given roles.


The plot is based on the friendship of the senior citizens and their emotions. How they are being treated at their home in old age is neatly depicted and many elders could relate it to them. Although there is a couple, Karikalan and Risha doing romance, the elders’ track is interesting. Some emotional scenes are very touching and many could connect it with them. However, some of the dialogues seem to be cinematic and at a point, the film makes us feel like listening to a lesson in the book. Caring about the elders is a must, but the way the director wanted to project is not much impressive. The cinematography and the BGM are good.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the senior artists
  • Production and technical values are neat

What’s Not There?

  • Certain scenes are preachy
  • Lead pair’s chemistry is not much attractive


Although it is not a new subject, the performance of the stars impresses us. If you like to watch sentimental movies that speak about relationships, then you can try this!
