Another Masterpiece from Vetrimaran

#Asuran

Raw film ! Action sequences are amazing !

Asuran is a story of blood and flesh. The film has got bright chances to win a few National Awards.

Dhanush has delivered a terrific performance and the interval scene is one among the best mass scenes an actor can get in this kind of a movie. He has literally lived as the character.

Manju Warrier, comes up with power-packed emotions. Pasupathi, Naren, Ken, Teejay and other members of the cast have done complete justice to their respective roles, music score from G V is Too good. Cinematography is totally flawless
