Star Performance

Sada returned to the film industry after a long gap and her performance is completely different and she has excelled in her role. Similarly, Riythvika's performance needs a special mention.

Analysis

Director Majid has brought a new script and had tried to prove why and how the women are forced to do prostitution. The director has taken the concept from a real life story and the dialogues reflect the pains of the women. Some of the scenes are irritating; for instance, even after knowing that his wife entered prostitution only to save him, the husband wants to leave her. The director had also filmed how a husband feels when someone praises the structure and beauty of his wife in front of him. However, the climax is not acceptable. The background music gels well with the script and the cinematography by Sakthivel is okayish.

What's There?

  • The concept is good
  • The performances of the stars are excellent
  • Execution is good

What's Not There?

  • The climax is not appreciable
  • Certain scenes had lost the logic

Verdict

The director tried to reflect the pain suffered by the women who entered prostitution. Although the performance and execution are good, the climax spoils the effort made. If you want to watch a different movie, then you can try this!
