Star Performance

Vijay Sethupathi has excelled in his role, as usual. His body language and dialogue delivery are fantastic. Minute face expressions are one among the specialties of the star. Gayathrie, the Ppaah girl, is not lesser than anyone, with her performance. She has done a decent job for the role given. Her role is not a template role and thanks to the director Ranjit.


Ranjit Jeyakodi, the debutant director, has chosen a good script for his debut and has succeeded in it. The cast selection by Ranjit is superb. He has chosen the best artists for the film and they have performed up to the expectation.

What’s There?

  • The exemplary performance of Vijay Sethupathi
  • Ranjit should be appreciated for his excellent direction
  • Gayathrie and Vijay Sethupathi chemistry is superb
  • Background music gels with the story

What’s Not There?

  • Cinematography is not okay
  • Editing is not up to the mark


Although the film had a delayed release, it comes with a script that suits the current period. Besides the story, the film could be watched for Vijay Sethupathi and Gayathrie. Puriyaatha Puthir… Watch worthy!
