Star Performance

Vetri had done a great job and his performance is natural. Karunakaran had excelled as usual with his casual performance. The rest of the stars have done justice to the roles given.


Jiivi is a new concept to Kollywood. The script is penned neatly and the dialogues are strong. Babu Tamizh Bio coming soon... >> Read More... Babu Tamizh is very sharp in writing the dialogues that form a pillar to the script. Although the stars had performed well, it is the script and the screenplay that excel them. The director takes a bit of time to establish the character of the hero. His role is well scripted. Similarly the twists are unexpected and they are revealed neatly. Of all, the climax is an interesting one. The cast selection is pretty good. Rama, Rohini and Karunakaran fit well in the roles. The film is technically sound. Cinematography and editing are fantastic. Praveen had worked dedicatedly to make the film appeal good. The music composition by Sundaramurthy is excellent. The BGM gels well with the script and the expressions of the stars.

  • Different script and neat execution
  • Performances of the stars are good
  • Production and technical values are fantastic

What’s Not There?

  • Except for a few minor errors including the slow start to establish the character nothing big
