Star Performance

Anu’s performance is perfect. She has loved as a strong lady; caring mother and a loving wife. Although Nassar comes in a small role, he does it fantastically. Other stars had done their best in the given roles.


NT Nantha has chosen the good women-centric script for a talented lady like Anu and as usual, Anu excelled in it. Nantha’s screenplay is good and it is very fast and furious too. All the latest technologies like face recognition, database management and satellite communication are used effectively. The only thing is that the director should have trimmed the length of the film.

What’s There?

  • Anu Hasan’s action avatar is laudable; she has excelled in sentimental scenes too
  • The background music and the song are good
  • The script and screenplay is good

What’s Not There?

  • Length of the film is a drawback
  • More twists creates boredom at times


Valla Desam is a real action entertainer and a good comeback film for Anu Hasan. It is one of the best action entertainers cum woman-centric movies in the recent times. Watch it! You will love it!
