a watchable flick
5 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

the movie begins well with a deep story to come ahead. but all the seriousness in the story is lost just after 20 minutes of the movie. suriya is a professional shooter. he can kill any person from any distance. he is been chosen to kill a judge and he misses the target. the police chase him and he escapes. he says that judge is the target for him and he will definitely kill him within 10 days.will he do it? or been caught by police! suriya is the sole performer and vadivelu steals the show. rest all did their job as per script. with many flaws in the movie, one can neglect its deep impact and just look it as a entertainer. the first 30 minutes takes off well. the next 1 hour is dragged and the story loses its seriousness.after intermission one expects the story to pick up again. but again for next 30 minutes boring slot. the movie"s last 30 minutes reveals the family drama and unexplainable and illogical stunts to get to a climax.

ratings : out of 5.0 story: 3.0 action:3.0 comedy:3.0 songs :4.0 dialog:2.5 romanc:2.0 editing:3.0 direction:3.5 cinematography: 3.0 (nice in songs) cgi: 2.0 ( younger suriya) casting : 2.5 suriya"S potential is wasted. my value : 30/45

total aggregate score: 65/100 final verdict: watch once and forget.
