Awesome changeover by Vijay
13 November 2012 | by (Chennai) – See all my reviews

Wow wow wow are the three words striking my mind after coming out of theater. you are well guaranteed with entertainment, patriotism and bits of romance. Satyan performed well . Jayaram as cameo done his part well

Kajal did well .

The positive notch in this film is camera by the great Santhosh Sivan . His angles and positioning were awesome. Especially an action block before interval .

The main reason for this movie is obviously AR MURUGADOSS. He again proved he is a good script writer . His pen worked hard in the simple story with many twists .

Vijay carries the story in his shoulders throughout the movie .He performed well . A new hair style and mannerisms worked well .

Positives:

Vijay Script and screenplay Camera Google Google Vidhyut

Negtaives:

Background score Wasting Jayaram
