Trivia

In an interview with The Hindu, Suriya told that recording of one more track was completed by September 2015. According to lyricist Madhan Karky, for the track "Naan Un", Rahman had composed a tune and wanted him to write something. He came up with the lines - "Naan Un Azhaginile Deivam Unarugiren". Rahman usually reads something for inspiration before composing the tunes and for this particular situation of composing the track, he had picked up a random page from a book and the lines he read there were: "In your beauty I see the manifestation of God" which translates back to "Naan Un Azhaginile Deivam Unarugiren". Karky noted this co-incidence on composing the track See more »

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!!!!
