A steady ride!
11 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Today, when myself and my friend entered the theater, the first few rows were empty but I still had faith in RADHAMOHAN,well he hasn't failed to deliver! A well made movie and the best part is that it doesn't have a single song:)that's something great about the film. It shows that only when a person who loves cinema,produces a film it'll come out well as Prakashraj has done in this film.

Casting was nice and apt! A separate comedy track travels throughout the film mocking nowadays' unrealistic tamil films. For,the very first time in a tamil film the public(hostages)have reacted instead of just sitting and watching the show!So, as far as the acting department is concerned,everybody did their job perfectly!!

Editing was nice except for the title sequence, it made me not to look at the screen. Art work is excellent:)the plane and the Tirupati Airport's set was almost like the original.

Only 8 because of the BGM and bad sound mixing and sound editing and for terrible CG works:(.But still the steady first half and the racy second half makes the movie HOT!!!!
