Vivek and Devayani’s natural performances are impressive. They lived as the ideal parents, who try hard to fulfill their son’s wishes; especially, Vivek’s emotional performance receives appreciation. The kids, who played the martial arts experts, had given a good performance. Azhagam Perumal, Prem, Rishi and all the other stars have done their part well.
VP Viji has brought a good script. The casting team had done a good job; yes, the stars fit in the roles perfectly. The film has got a good message and comes with some preachy scenes that might have been avoided. The BGM by Srikanth Deva is good. The action sequences are impressive and the children had done it excellently well. Kudos to the action choreographer!
