The actor is in limelight after the release of all his movies. But this is the first time he is enacting the role of an Ad director. He has done full justice to his role and his performance is said to be the only highlight in the film.
The actress has once again proved her calibre with Arikil Oraal. She has played a trained dancer in this film. She got the rare opportunity to lend her voice for her own performance in this film.
The actor was more popular as a romantic hero. But this movie has showcased him with a different character.
The first half of the movie has a punch. It keeps one clinge to his seat. Some good work can be noticed in areas like music, choreography, etc. All the cast have done full justice to their roles.
The second half of the film lacks interesting moments. The humour factor is lacking. The movie also seems to be lagging at some places which might make you bored.
Arikil Oraal is an average movie. The only highlight is Indrajith's performance. Do not expect very much from this mysterious thriller.
