Udhaya had exposed all his acting skills and tried a lot to compete with Prabhu, who has always been perfect in emoting. But, it didn’t help him, as his expressions are not natural. He has overacted a bit in certain scenes. MS Bhaskar has done his best.
The debutant director Asif has tried his level best to make his debut a remarkable one. The script is interesting, but when it is narrated, it loses its grip. The sub-plots are not developed well and the characters too. The flashback scenes bring in a grip at a point, but we lose it as soon as we enter into the contemporary story. The director should have at least pulled down Udhaya during his exaggerated performance. The music turns louder in the middle of the film and the audiences feel irritated.
What’s Not There?
Although the film has a lot of stars, due to the half-baked subplots and the poorly developed characters, the film didn’t impress the audiences. Although, it is not much impressive, if you are a person who is interested in a different genre, then you could try Utharavu Maharaja.
