Trivia

The trailer, teaser and the first look posters featured Suriya as a paraglider. However, the paragliding sequences were removed by the film editor due to time constraints. In an interview, the editor stated that paragliding is Manis (character played by Suriya) hobby and was supposed to be featured as an introductory scene for Mani. Later, he stated that the deleted scene would be featured in the second part of the film; planned as 24 Decoded. See more »

Goofs

During the first time travel experience, Mani travels back in time thrice. But we can see the clocks in his shop showing different time even though he returns back to the same time, i.e., a clock showing 5.50 didn't show the same even after Mani returned to the time period. See more »

Quotes

Mani: I am basically a watch mechanic.

Worth the TIME!!
6 May 2016 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

Vikram K Kumar is the real hero! All his work in making such a detailed script has payed off.

The screenplay will be slightly hard to digest for the commercial movie lovers! But I loved the way he penned the screenplay. The Romantic part is well combined with sci-fi part, so it was very engaging and enjoyable one.

Greatest comeback for Surya! If it's Theri for Vijay, it's 24 for Surya! He just basks the whole movie on his back and delivers a great performance! Aathraya role needs special mention as he literally steals the show with his sleek villainous role.! Watch out!

ARR silently keeps the flow of the movie with his BGM and you won't get disturbed unlike others. The Art direction and cinematography completes the visual cycle beautifully! Special appreciations to them!

Every character is given its own importance. Was waiting for such a sci-fi thriller in Thamizh cinema that has very good detailing that it takes some time to get a good look into it completely!! Although it's on the lines of Indru Netru Naalai, 24 is the movie to watch out, purely for its screenplay! Aathraya - highlight of the whole movie! Must watch in theater!!

As it's a sci-fi in Thamizh, 9/10!!!!
