Director Thirumaeni has portrayed the life and living of urban upper middle class youth in a natural manner. The affair between Sanjay and Aarti and the way it takes roots and grows stronger has been depicted in a mature and convincing manner. The song sequences have been shot aesthetically.
Sanjay impress the audience with his cool handling of a not so challenging role. The tall and sexy Ekta enacts her role with confidence. Her body language and expression is very impressive. The bubbly looking Lizna is charming with her cute expressions.
The director has proved his mettle by sensitively handing the subject love. His courage to cast new faces and the realistic way he has depicted the story is commendable. The screenplay, which drags at times, is the only drawback with the movie. Taman’s music is reasonably good with some sweet melodies. In short the film is worth watching.
