Right from the opening scenes, Mohan Raja tells us what he is after with Velaikkaran is not telling a story but a message. Nayanthara's is largely a supporting role and the actress makes up for it with her screen presence.
There is no much entertainment and fun in the film. Prakash
raj role is wasted. There is no need for a star like Prakash
raj and sneha to cast the roles. Nayanthara is also not
utilised properly. Shivakarthikeyans role is full of
dialogues . Only plus point is fahad Fazil who has done his
role to perfection. Shivakarthikeyan has also done his part.
Mohan raja has dissappointed as the movie lack entertainment

A movie need to be watched by the society and the young
people. Mohan Rajas best direction and there is mentioned
the white collar crime. But dissapointed with the editing
and background music. Satisfied with songs
