First Half will take your breath away ... second half, though not lengthy still it feels as stretched

This is one of those rarest movie that people would come across.

The Role is Such difficult to play , Hats off to surya for taking all the shots twice(5000 shots) i.e. equal to almost 4 movies,

Hard work always pays off, and this one surely did

The concept is a great one, that is the life and main forte of this movie

However , We can easily blame director for not keeping the twins till last, but just imagine how many more shots surya would have to take, the movie would have took much more time to complete.

Director has tried to put too much of twists. the one thing i didn't like, it consumed time.

Surya is on the road to become one of the most finest actor in tamil film industry, for sure as he is giving one after the other hits , that include the role which he hasn't played earlier, that makes him most versatile actor.

We will have to Salute K.V Anand for choosing such wonderful locations for songs

Fights and Actions spot on with Extravagant Graphics , with the help of Performance capture technology
