Outstandingly Subtle narration of the concept of 'crime will be punished'. Manikandan is here to stay. An International class film maker in Tamil has arrived in style. Brilliant film. Can't wait now for his 3rd film on September 23rd(Aandavan Kattalai). Hoping for a rocking Manikandan - Vijay Sethup... (more)

Manikandan has proved that he is not a one time wonder, but this thriller has pace problem, despite the slow narration for the most part the movie is gripping. whole cast and technicians does a good job.
