Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributor was advised that the film as it stood would be classified 15 uncut by the BBFC. The distributor then opted to re-edit certain elements from the film in order to obtain a more audience friendly 12A classification. The cuts made removed several moments of strong, bloody violence (sight of a large blood splatter onto a window after Dr. Sethuraman is shot in the head, sight of Mani's friend being beaten heavily with a baton, sight of blood spurts as Mani is shot by Athreya, sight of Mani's arm being severed with a hatchet and all following shots of him falling and landing into the ground). Following these aforementioned changes the film was passed with a 12A rating on May 4th of that year for 'moderate violence and occasional bloody images'. See more »

A must Watch Movie for Sci-Fi & Thriller movie Lovers :)
7 May 2016 | by jace150693See all my reviews

A must watch movie for those who love Sci-Fi and Thriller.Credits goes to the Actor Suriya and the Director Vikram K Kumar they have done excellent Job. Vikram's (Director) Experiment '24' reached successfully to the audience. Nithya menen was perfect for the role so as Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Once again saranya gave her best performance in this movie. yes I am a Fan of AR Rahman's Music but little disappointed for this movie (personal Opinion).

Plus Points of the movie

1) Suriya's Acting 2) Vikram K Kumar's Direction and Screenplay 3) Innovative Story Line 4) Best Editing 5) Back ground Music (BGM)

Minus Points

1) Songs ( Felt Boring )

Over all a Big Thumbs Up for this Movie, I recommend you to watch :)

We ( Indians ) should encourage (Director's) Talent.
