Urban laughter revenge!
21 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Plot: Low-profile funny youngster who says himself as a 'don' helps his dumb girl friend to murder the real don who demolished her family.

Director Vignesh Shivan tried a black comedy gangster script with Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara in lead. Vijay Sethupathi character just remind me 'Das' of Soodhu Kavvum. Nayantara is a dumb girl seeking for revenge.

Both VJ Sethupathi and Nayan became huge positive for this success. Next to lead roles RJ Balaji occupies nearly more than 50% of screen, but very few one line comedy worked.

Veteran star Parthiban as main antagonist add some good flavor to the movie. Other gangsters in the film such as motta Rajendran, Anandaraj & Mansoor Ali Khan also good. Cast also includes two cops Raadhika as VJ Sethupathi's mom & Azhagam Perumal as Nayanthara's dad.

The way how Vijay Sethupathi team & Mansoor Ali Khan team attacking Parthiban is one of the best laughter scene in recent times.

Movie has very few cons such as commercial aspects added by the director via RJ Balaji. For the few days in Tamil industry film- makers trying to attract Ajith fans, I don't know why.

Anirudh scores a decent BGM. George Williams never failed to impress. As a producer surely Dhanush will know how to promote the film & make steady ride in box office.

Verdict: Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara just steal the show.
