User Reviews

cliché but entertaining

Sivakarthikeyan is taking up same kind of roles in all his movie.Double meaning dialog. throughout the movie make the U certification worthless. second half looks more like another separate movie and does not fit at all.The marathon scenes could have been better and it looks like there is no competition for the hero. Music and background score by Anirudh is awesome. HE is the real and one and only winner in this movie. Guest appearance by Dhanush and Nayantara is Appreciatable. Cinematography is good but editing is average. The movie feels lengthy.

Overall the movie is entertaining but not worth the money you spend on it. So wait until the release of DVD's.
