One of the best period romantic flicks in Tamil
9 January 2021 | by maruthuk-21470See all my reviews

To me, it's definitely one of the best romantic period flicks in Tamil that I have seen till now. Acting of Arya, Emy Jackson, MS Baskar & Nasser was a highlight and it caught the attention. Moreover it's definitely the best movie that AL Vijay has got to direct till now! Some of the romantic scenes were too good and it made me cry in multiple scenes. Background Music and Songs from GV Prakash were also very good. I really enjoyed watching this movie and it will be in my heart for a very long time.
