Star Performance

As usual, Arulnithi did his best. His expressions and body language are excellent. He reflects well how the aspiring filmmakers would be. On the other hand, Shraddha, the versatile actress, didn’t leave any stones unturned. She has done nice work and impresses the audiences. The rest of the star cast including Yogi Babu, have done their job well.


Although the director made us think a lot in some scenes in the first half, if it is worth watching, he finishes off the film in an effective manner. The second half is awe-inspiring. The characterization, the scene setup and the flashback sequence are well designed and work as the anchor for the film. Casting is brilliant and especially, the lead stars’ selection. Sam CS’ BGM is incredible and it adds an extra thrill to the script. Cinematography and editing are fantastic.
