Everything about the movie is right, with a bold climax to actually accentuate the intensity of the story it speaks about.
Telling a story about how a down-trodden soldier is managed by his cruel superiors is brought to justice in a 100-minute courtroom drama. The whole film takes inside the court with no songs to deviate. The plot sticks to what it intends to convey & the screenplay keeps it going in real-time, which is truly engrossing.
The deep understanding of army laws & how a court-martial is carried out is portrayed with great finesse. Cast performance is very good, especially Suresh Gopi & Partibhan. The latter pulls it off quite nicely with speaking only few words.
The emotional turn it takes toward the end really induces emotion. Moreover, the process of court-martial and the advocacy is a treat for lovers. It keeps its viewers hooked and that is what matters. I rate it 7.9/10 because the editing & cinematography is very poor. Music also isn't remarkable pertaining to the serious theme. Sound effects are loud & untimely, although the inventive use of sounds is appreciable. Dialogs are very good but there's no denying that they all lacked furnishing.
BOTTOM LINE: Highly recommended because of its aesthetic value & huge entertainment quotient.
