This ranks among the weakest films in the actor's career.

A Muthaiya template violent saga

The film nosedives after a well setup interval block and fails miserably to live upto the expectations meandering into one violent episode after another and missing out on expanding on the core story of sibling love between the good and the bad.(more)
