Beautiful movie
14 July 2015 | by Sundar KarthikeyanSee all my reviews

A very well made movie.

Loved the soft theme of the film. Very different from the usual "formula" movies made in Tamil. All the actors and technical aspects of the film are very impressive and top notch. The story keeps picking up pace as the movie progresses and keeps the viewer on edge.

The lead kids have acted naturally. The other actors have performed their roles very well too.

The background score is very mature and lively. Songs have been inter-weaved in to the movie without the usual "escapistic"songs of an Indian film

Cinematography in this film is one of its very strong points. The angles and smoothness of the frames is amazing.

A very good movie... Some might find it slow.
