Will Sathya escape from his vision? The rest of the story deals with it.

Star Performance

This is a different avatar from Balaji. He has done a perfect job as a middle-class guy. Aishwarya Rajesh is perfect with her role, as usual. Her body language, expressions, and dialogue delivery are fantastic. Radhika Sarathkumar and Isha Talwar got a limited screen presence. Vivek Prasanna is decent in the given role, and Tamizh is good too.


The director has brought a thriller story with a fast-paced screenplay. The director didn’t take much time to reveal the characters and got into the story quickly. The star selection is outstanding. Yet, some of the characters could’ve been given some more screen time. The film is visually pleasing, and the editing is perfect. The BGM by Sam CS is excellent. It is a bit disturbing to see the lead character doing stunts like a hero when the first half of the film showcased him as a normal boy next door. However, these cinematic transformations are acceptable to maintain the thrill.

What’s There?

  • Neat story and execution
  • RJ Balaji and Aishwarya Rajesh’s performances are good
  • The film is technically sound

What’s Not There?

  • A few loopholes


Though the film has some logical loopholes here and there, the director didn’t fail to engage the audience from the beginning to the climax. If you love watching thriller films, then you can watch the movie for sure. RJ Balaji’s new avatar is good!
