Somehow I didn't get a chance to watch both the previous versions and hence thought of catching up this one. After having already known about the story line, there is nothing new that is being offered in the first half. Almost the entire first half is spent in establishing the character of Lead actor Vishal (who has executed a neat performance as Police officer Karnan). The romantic sequences were potrayed in a silly manner and doesn't fit in at all. As expected it is towards the interval the movie seem to pick up slight momentum.
Once the core plot is revealed through Pooja devaraya in the second half, the pace gets set in. The movie keeps moving at a gripping pace until the climax - thanks to the emotional and action sequences which makes the right impact with audience.
Rashi Kanna is Cute; Ks Ravikumar scores big as a honest cop. Parthiban as Kalirajan keeps reminding us of his performance from Naanum rowdy thaan - May be due to a similar role, but does well here too.
Climax deserves a special mention as it is well thought of and fits in nicely to give an emotional end to the movie. Given the social message this movie tries to convey, the twist executed by the protagonist seems to be the apt way to establish the seriousness and need for a strong punishment for such offences.
If you haven't watched the original versions like me, then this would definitely be worth the watch - atleast for the first time.
