A few drawbacks but better than Vijay's previous two films
8 April 2011 | by (Oldbury) – See all my reviews

This movie was good and though it has not deviated from the masala style, Vijay has acted well enough to make it entertaining. The comedy in the first half, especially the one between Vijay and Anushka is good. If Vivek or Vadivelu had been inserted, it would have been more entertaining. Salim Ghouse has acted well enough to be a typical Villain in a Vijay film. But the few drawbacks are there which could have been taken care of. The villain doesn't over react or get tensed when he is facing even his son's death! Also, Anushka's acting is typical Telugu style which spoils the movie. The whole movie was made like a Telugu one, which should have been changed.
