Did You Know?


Although this film has been promoted as Dhanush's first film featuring him in dual characters, it technically is not. His successful 2015 science-fantasy film 'Anegan' featured him in 4 distinctive characters, each of them appearing in a different era. Some sources deny this, because these characters are supposed to be different incarnations of one soul. See more »

It would have been better with proper script. This movie may not bore us but if you watch first 15 min of it you will realize its a clichéd tamil entertainer.

"Your expectations will go down after watching first 15min automatically. Only direction slightly saved us. Dhanush in two forms and trisha's performance will be the only highlight of the movie" My rating- 2.5/5 (watch it for timepass)
