He is not in the least remorseful and continues to manipulate everyone. He believes that if a person is foolish or greedy enough to be duped, then the person is to be blamed.

A well crafted script with great execution in cast
8 September 2014 | by xbharathSee all my reviews

This is hands down one of the best movies I had watched in 2014 till date. I could not have identified for you the names of the cast, the director or any one else in the movie but when I had done watching I wanted to know everything about them.

The movie is structured in episodes and the episodes carry the characters as well as the plot forward.

The role of the lead actress is well placed in the movie where it enters mid way and never take a prominence on screen but has the strongest influence in guiding the story to its end. In every way the movie's ending was more than satisfying.

The lead villain role was also played by ruthless but somewhat gullible group that adds to lighter moments in the movie.

Definitely an entertaining movie worth watching a few times.
