Star Performance

Nithiin appears in a rugged look. His performance is excellent and he had shown a lot of maturity in his emotions. In fact, his emotions and expressions are entirely different from that of “A…Aa.” The best performer is Arjun. The Action King’s performance will not end up in the theater and he will follow you in your memories, even after leaving the cinema halls. Srikanth, Megha Akash and others had done justice to their roles.


Hanu Raghavapudi has chosen a unique script and made Nithiin and Arjun shine in their roles. Hanu had taken efforts to make the story, a perfect thriller entertainer. But, he missed the humor part that would have relaxed the audiences. However, the audiences are stunned with the performance of the two leads.

What’s There?

  • Arjun’s characterization is simply superb and the Action King just swallowed everyone easily by his performance
  • The second half is perfect and it has a lot of nail biting moments
  • Mega Akash is a good selection and she doesn’t give the feel of a debutant but an experienced star
  • Music by Mani Sharma is excellent

What’s Not There?

  • Good comedy is missing and silly comedy scenes in some places irritate the audiences
  • Some scenes are purposely inserted and they are cinematic


Lie has an interesting plot with highly performing artists. Except for some negatives, the film is a perfect thriller flick that suits all class audiences.
