A milestone in Tamil cinema! Bala has done complete justice to the story and plot he has chosen to showcase.A movie that will make you travel with every character for almost 2 hours and for sure at some point you will feel you are in the same world they are in, which itself is enough to say why Bala is a master of story teller. Bala has told this story about the Indian slaves in tea estate in his usual style - raw and rustic, not compromising his views for any commercial reasons, very daring particularly when portraying the intentions of Christian missionaries. Whatever he wanted his viewers to feel, he achieved with his perfection Every artist in this movie, we must say, has lived their character.Lead character in this movie is just one among the slaves, a innocent who cant even stand for himself, leads a lowerly life of waiting for food and his own independence most of his time. Bala just thrashes the formula we held ourselves for movies and heroes once again. Music, cinematography adds strength to the movie I personally feel Bala's best is yet to come. Eagerly awaiting his next one
