The movie is about three fathers with different mindsets and how that reflects on the way they raise their respective kids. Samuthirakani is that cool dad, every child would love to be raised by. He understands that education alone cannot decide his son's success.
As expected, Samuthirakani has done what he does best. A neat, realistic performance is what you get from this experienced actor. Thambi Ramaiah gets a meaty role and the seasoned player has made most use of it.
Overall View: Samuthirakani's intention to deliver a meaningful film is praiseworthy. But, we have already seen similar movies and Appa needs something special to stand out from the rest.
