Simbu excels in this largely satisfying rural drama

Simbu and Bala's scenes together have worked big time and it is something to watch out for. Their comedy track helps one overlook the flaws in the film, which comes with such rural dramas.

STR's vintage changeover is promising, but Eeswaran falls short of expectations.

Does justice in parts as a festival entertainer

Billed as a festival entertainer, the movie does justice in parts, thanks to a few scenes which involve the family members. Silambarasan's committed performance and Thaman's background score lift the movie, which otherwise, has a predictable screenplay with cliches galore.(more)
