Another Hari film is on the cards. Does he do something new this time around?

Hero is a petty money-lender. Hero meets heroine, falls for her. Villain’s arch enemy is the hero. Hero beats him. Marries heroine. The end. Yeah, the usual!

Vishal does a good job, giving whatever is required for this pucca commercial script. He also produces this film in addition. His stunts are good, but has to work a little on the emotional scenes.

Shruti looks gorgeous and sexy. She has a very limited role to perform. Her romantic scenes with Vishal seem to lack the magic though.

Sathyaraj, as always, is a great performer. No complaints!

Soori and the rest do what has been asked by the director.

Yuvan’s songs are below average and so is the BGM. Editing could have been crisper. Cinematographer as in all Hari’s movies, is good.

Hari, the director, keeps repeating the same formula over and over in every movie of his. Same amount of action, masala and sentiment! He should choose a new track before people realize this!

On the whole, an entertainer, yes! But nothing new in it! Absolutely nothing!

Our Rating:

Script – 4/10
Performance – 7/10
Screenplay – 5/10
