Slick...Tamil Cinema re invents itself!
30 June 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After a long time, it was nice to see Tamil cinema for what its known for, slick production values. Ayan brings out that very well thanks to the tight story which does not bore you, slick action sequences (especially the Congo chase scene) and good acting. Surya is in his element as a young smuggler. Akashdeep Saigal seems a bit over the top as a stereo typical villain but seems to hold his own. Other actors support the story well. What is nice about this movie is no unnecessary masala and sub plots to mar the overall tight storyline. Kudos!

Watch the movie for some refreshing acting by Surya and company. Watch it for virgin locales hitherto unexplored in contemporary domestic cinema i.e. Congo. Watch it for the tight storyline minus the regular masala.
