A Very Amateur Work. ♦ 33%
10 April 2014 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

I cannot think about this film and resist myself from laughing because every single factor is flawed. Except Rima Kallingal's performance. She did quite a nice job but that fails to save the film from self- destruction.

The film starts its parade of flaws when characters behave mysteriously. After having allegedly involved in a murder crime, the viewers are directly shown the protagonist to be in a jail. Whatever happened to the trial?! Not flashing the facts right, the writers jump to conclusions & try to directly round up on the thriller factor. The second half is dangerously confusing because some Tamil speaking, over-smart hotshot comes out of nowhere and we realize later about few twists. And these twists look so fabricated, television serials will fail in front of it.

It is just an attempt to make a Mallu film based on Hollywood prison break classics including The Shawshank Redemption.

I strictly got refracted from the blown-off plot. Lots of foreign dialogs annoyed me. The technical factors were not good, as well. Terrible slow motion shots, useless sequences, exaggerated points & erroneous dialogs. And what was Vijay Babu trying to do here? If he meant acting then I am sorry to say, he is ridiculous.

BOTTOM LINE: Just another hyped-up pot-boiler which is neither inventive nor of foreign standards as the title may suggest. Avoidable!
