Best Try and good beginning for future Tamil films..
14 January 2010 | by (Coimbatore, India) – See all my reviews

hey Selva,.. I expected certain things in this movie, before going to the theater to watch the film.. My expectations were totally fulfilled, even I can say they were exceeded..

This movie will definitely good 4 u in several aspects. Especially, u had broken the shackles of touching only teenage feelings(even in Pudupettai).. This will widen ur scope..

I liked both the halves of the movie.. But the background score is not effective in second half, it fails to control the audience's interest.. even camera work is not so good..

but i ll give a 9/10 for d try// all d best/.
