A slow yet powerful revenge mission
17 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A good film needs acclaim for every element in it. So let us have a break up review of each and every good element of the movie that has added success to it, Direction: Madarasapattinam and Deivathirumagal fame director Vijay has added yet another new genre this time in his menu. With no influence of style from his movies he gives us a good, moving thriller that picks up speed as the story goes. Simply superb direction by Vijay. Yet another movie joins his victory wagon. Casting:

Coming to the lead role Vikram has done a fabulous job, lifting steeply in his career graph after his recent flop flick 'Rajapattai'. He takes up roles in two shades and justifies both. Coming to the lead heroine the beautiful Anushka has utilized her screen space effectively and proves through her matured acting. Amy Jackson does a Barbie doll role; she has got everything to take up as a routine commercial Tamil cinema heroine. Lakshmi Roy to say has done an extended cameo role yet a powerful one. Santhanam comes now and then in the movie and lights his comedy crackers. Nasser and the Telugu actor as the investigation officers have lived up to their roles; of course Nasser's acting skills are legendary. The villain from Telugu has given a power packed performance Kollywood Welcomes you villain sir! This movie has got huge list of supporting cast starting from Sharanya, Balaji,Thambi Ramaiyah, Sujitha, Delhi Ganesh, Shayaji Shinde and the list goes on every one comes for a micro role but has done justice to those roles. Technical Crew: Excellent cinematography by Nirav sha and Music by GV, entire album was good particularly Uyirin Uyirae song was a good melody and Yaradi mohini song reminds us of Nangai song from Engeyum Kadhal. Worth the mention would be the art work in Uyirin Uyirae song on the beach shores was visually sumptuous and the credits to the art director. Story line:

Since this is an action thriller I don't want dig the suspense in the movie. In one line it is a revenge movie with a powerful flashback and a cute romance story in it. The new flavour of romance between Anushka and Vikram was so fresh and has come out very well. Final link with the five elements of the nature was brilliant. The echo location was a new concept to kollywood movies. Verdict: New action thriller flick with a romance and revenge flavour with all necessary elements make this movie a worth watch. -Reviewed by Sivakumar Balachandran
