Must watch thriller
6 February 2017 | by raikuttanSee all my reviews

Very good attempt by the upcoming director Karthik. Right from the first scene movie is engaging.Rahman as a police officer has done a great job. No heroism just class. Unusual crime thriller which we don't get to see much in Indian / Tamil cinema. Loved the reference to Mario game of 90s and the magic brick dialogue. Rahman does have a faint Malayalam Accent during the voice over rendering. Very good editing and cinematography. Conclusion in climax doesn't leave much Questions in mind and covers almost all left over bits. All actors have done justice to their roles. I would recommend all to watch this movie as it would be one of the must watch thrillers in tamil history
