Awesome Movie From Raja.......
20 February 2018 | by akassh-04855See all my reviews

Right From The First Sequence It Makes Us Think... How We Are Careless With The High Class Consuming Products..... The Movie Will Make Us Laugh, Cry And To Think Mostly... Dashing Dialogues ..... The Dialogue Delivery & The Simple - But- Smashing Acting From SK... This Is Why Everybody Likes SK... His Charm and Presence In The Screen Is Awesome..... Nayanthara Scores From Her Introduction Scene... Anirudh Is Always The Best...

Mentions:- Sk's Different Dimension Is Shown In The Film....

Verdict:- M. Raja Scores High With His Ability Of Storytelling.......
