Goofs

When Komalavalli (Varalaxmi) speaks to Rendu (Radha Ravi) on the phone, she mentions that, "Sundar (Vijay) visited Canada and stayed for three weeks. Three weeks later, Sundar was the "EXCLUSIVE" news in "ALL" TVs/Newspapers." Basically, a news item is "Exclusive" if it appears in only one (or a few) TVs/Newspapers. If a news item appears in ALL TVs/Newspapers, that news is not "Exclusive"/ See more »

Strictly for Vijay fans
7 November 2018 | by n_dhruvSee all my reviews

When it comes to ARM & Vijay combo they always come with a strong issue with engaging screenplay and story. This time screenplay is weak but Vijay's performance made it at least one time watch.

What's Good : Vijay.

What's Bad : Runtime, weak screenplay.

Last Word : You can go for this but don't go with high expectations.
