Star Performance

Undoubtedly this film will be a milestone in the career of Simbu. He should really be thankful to Mani Ratnam for given him such a good performance oriented role in his career for the first time. Next, Vijay Sethupathi… The actor had never underperformed in his career so far. This film is also one of the remarkable movies in life of Vijay Sethupathi. He had performed excellently well. In the female stars, Jyothika and Jayasudha had got a huge space to perform well. Although the other stars Arvind Swamy, Arun Vijay, Aishwarya Rajesh and Aditi Rao Hydari had performed well, it is Simbu, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika and Jayasudha who are highlighted well. Although Prakash Raj had a limited screen space, he had done his role perfectly well.


Mani Ratnam and Siva Anand had done a good job in scripting the film. After a long Mani Ratnam's movie has intense action sequences and emotional scences that attract the youngsters.

Mani Ratnam films had always been perfect with the scripts that deal with the complex relationships and here is also some complex relationship in the script. Cinematography is one of the biggest highlight of the movie and AR Rahman’s background music gels well with the script.

What's There?

  • Performance of the stars is good
  • Fast paced narration by Mani Ratnam
  • Cinematography and the BGM are at its best

What's Not There?

  •  Some of the talented stars are not used well


With the Mani Ratnam element, the film attracts almost all the people. The Classic performance of the stars and AR Rahman’s music and Santosh Sivan’s cinematography definitely impress the people. Chekka Chivantha Vaanam - watch worthy!
