Technical and Overall Analysis:
Off late, Tamil films are being made quite technically and there is no denying the fact that this film is also taut in that way. The director has his own way of narrating the film with some good suspense elements going it’s way. There are certain scenes which will surely jolt and surprise you all through.
But at the same time there is so much of drag in the film which can get on to your nerves if you guess the twist. Director Lokesh gets good points for tackling a good subject in a detailed way.
Having said all this the film is quite serious and does not provide any commercial entertainment whatsoever. So all those who are seeking masala stuff stay away from it and those who want to try out something different this weekend can give it a shot.
One line verdict:
Only for those who like dark thrillers.
