Actor Surya comes to the village for a fund-raising meeting and Highness asks the actor to watch ... Written by Durgashankar

Bala have broken my expectation
20 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The good things in this movie are vishal,arya acting and yuvan's music.

yuvan's BG music was awesome. Vishal's intro track and is acting throughout the movie was awesome. arya's causal acting was good. Dialogues are extremely good.

But the movie has plenty of worst things. Comedy in few places was not good. Heroines doesn't help the movie. Arya's love is not natural and unbelievable. G.M. Kumar's death(which was one of the key part) in the movie have not impacted me. Songs in the album was too good but songs in the movie was worse. Arya is a thief in this movie but not even single scene supports that he is a thief.

Bala have not utilized yuvan's work. Bala have proved that film cannot be taken without story. I felt it has my failure.
