A good film
11 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Though many are quite upset with the film, I'm quite impressed.

First of all, I would say Sarath Kumar was apt for the role. Though he's not an excellent actor, when compared to Cheran or Madhavan (who were approached to do this role before him) he's a better choice.

Jyothika, a very good actress, has done her role well, except for some places.

I felt that Andrea's performance was better than that of Jyothika's.

Dialogues were good in most of the places. Direction could have been better. Camera was good. Editing was good too. Music was nice.

Though Gautam Vasudev Menon said that Sarath Kumar was wrong for the film, I would surely say that this is a landmark film in Sarath Kumar's career.
