Star Performance

Mugen, who registered his face with the audience through Bigg Boss, has done a good job. Soori’s comedy scenes worked out well. Meenakshi, Thambi Ramaiah, and Hareesh Peradi are decent with the assigned roles. Prabhu is the one who impressed the audience with his experienced performance. His look, body language, and dialogue delivery are superb.


The script has nothing new to offer. But, the performances of some stars are impressive. The screenplay should have been better. There are a lot of logical loopholes that make the audience question the makers. Although there are the same patterns of villains, revenge, a few scenes are interesting. Prabhu is the one who fits well in his character than any other artists in their respective roles. The music is okayish, and the cinematography is quite decent.

What’s There?

  • The performances of the artists are good
  • Comedy scenes worked out well

What’s Not There?

  • Logic is missing in many areas


Although there are a lot of logical loopholes, the film is watchable with the performances of the stars!
