User Reviews

gangster movie done in suspenseful thriller style
11 November 2016 | by stylegamerSee all my reviews

This movie is done in a different style than most of the movies in its genre. It works like a suspense thriller mixing elements of popular police and criminal drama , just that the criminals become some sort to police engaging in a witch hunt for the good guy who wrecked havoc on them , and the typical storyline of street gangsterism theme.

Worth watching for the thrills it offers. Excellent cinematography and editing although it contains the typical romance scenes , it is not done awkwardly.

Arun Kumar is back in shape after a long absence (since year 2000). it is rather shocking to see him in a totally different and updated role. And it is very suitably done in this film.
