Goofs

In the "Ayodhya Kuppam" scene, Sundar (Vijay) mentions that "Irrespective of which country or city that I'm in, I'll travel to India on election-day in order to cast my vote.". If this is the case, then the panic amidst media & Indian-companies in the movie's first scene is unnecessary because everyone will know that Sundar is coming to India only to cast his vote (as he routinely does) and not to buy/shut-down any Indian-Company.

Perfect festival movie
7 November 2018 | by sebinjacobjoySee all my reviews

Vijay. Vijay is the plus point of the film. He carries the entire film with his charm and energetic screen presence. Even though the movie doesn't reach the heights set by vj-arm with their previous films, the movie strikes with a good theme. Overall average first half . Amazing fight sequences . Vijays energy .Cliché i'm waiting Dialogue .Promising second half .Oru viral puratchi song .Varalakshmis performance .bgm

Overall this is a festival thriller with socially relevant topic.
