Lead actors' performances
Songs as speed breakers
Karthi is terrific! He is masculine, expresses emotions to the best level and his dialogue rendition is top-notch. Time and again he has proved that any characterization is just a cakewalk for him.
All the leading ladies are just okay with their limited screen space and their concurrent offerings. Nothing much to rave about them.
Satyaraj, Bhanupriya, & Viji Chandrashekar have done justice to their respective roles. They add quite some weightage to the movie. Soori's comedy comes in as a relief in the movie which at times, appears to be an overdose of sentiment and action engagement.
Pandiraj has chiselled out a neat and a decent product in a balanced scale. He has provided screentime to all characters in equal proportions making everyone appear big and good in the flick.
However, the melodrama could have been toned down and the sentiment factor could have been worked out a little lighter as it appears to be overdose at parts.
D Imman's music and background score is impressive and adds pace to the movie. Though a couple of songs appears to cut the pace of the movie, it is more the director's job to handle them than taking a jibe at the music director.
Cinematography and production values are adequate to the script and requirement and no complaints on that. Editor Ruben could have been better with his scissors part as he doesn't quite compliment Pandiraj with his output.
A decent rural flick which is packed with action and emotions.
