Daring and well scripted Psychological thriller
1 February 2015 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

I had minimal expectations going into the movie considering S.J.Suryah being away for almost 10 years but I should say he is back with a big bang. No wonder he considered this as his pet project!

First half is bit slow and some scenes can are really unwanted but the second half will make you realize the true essence of the movie.

If its nenokkadine for Telugu in recent times, then its Isai for Tamizh cinema for sure! No unwanted BGMs no unwanted scenes, no unwanted character development, no unwanted dialogs. There may be flaws but it has its explanation in the end ! S.J.Suryah is very cunning and smart.

Screenplay is very nicely paced and the climax is something to look out for!

Sathyaraj plays the trump-card here. Watch out!

Must watch movie and an eyeopener for many!
