the ultimate commercial revenge story
6 November 2013 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

gotta admit, this is the ultimate commercial revenge story i have ever seen in Tamil cinema.! this is the clear winner of this Diwali.! Suseendhran comes up with yet another path-breaking movie.. Vishal gets the much needed break and he deserves.. must watch..edge of a seat thrilling revenge story.. The jaded revenge formula in commercial cinema is reinvented.!!!

Vishal in a tailor made role and bharathiraja sir as a sentimental father steals the show.!Sharath Lohithaswa tries to be villain at perfect.. suri and laskhmi menon played their parts very well..

first half will be a delightful yet little violent one..from then on the movie pics up the speed and second half is a edge of a seat thriller..it may be an usual revenge story but told in a very unusual way with the apt cinematography which makes us feel very thrilled.!!

must watch movie..This movie has that thing which lacks in a class movie and what is needed in a commercial movie..
