What’s Hot

  • With so many movies Vijay Sethupathy has turned in this year, he is undoubtedly riding high on confidence. Nothing else can explain his choice to star in this movie with such an outdated storyline. His confidence is palpable in his own style on the lead character ‘Siva’ on screen, which is such a joy to watch.
  • The villains Kabir Duhan Singh as Chezhiyan and Harish Uthaman as David along with Sathish, K. S. Ravikumar, Sija Rose and Kishore who complete the support cast, have stuck to their respective roles and have done an efficient job to play their part in an attempt to make the movie a better experience for the audience.
  • Imman is at his melodious best with “Kannamma” that lingers around for a while. While the other formulaic songs are not so special, he still plays a vital role with his rollicking background score underlining the scenes featuring the lead cast and the stunt sequences.

What’s Not

  • The director Rathina Siva tries to build the story around family values and bonding including a pretty good emotional core. The execution however is over dependent on formulaic stunts and song sequences that don’t fit the bill but just make his screenplay weak and devoid of any powerful moments that could have worked much better to convey the feel!
  • Lakshmi Menon proves to be quite the unwanted distraction for an already faltering script. Her fake looks and immature performance resembles some fairness enhancement advertorial for adolescents rather than that of a lead lady in a movie.
  • The flashback featured in the movie has no real purpose to serve and rather antagonises the audience further especially being such a lame one that did not evoke much of emotions for them to empathise with the current day action.

Verdict

Verdict Stamp

Confident performances from much of the cast accompanied by peppy background scores is just not enough to make up for the shoddy treatment provided to the subject. A lacklustre screenplay means that the movie fails to grow the much needed wings as it comes crashing down!
