Live Rating: 2.5/5.0
The second half of the film is slightly better than the first half. Director failed to impress the audience with the regular commercial based mass story there is nothing much to talk about the storyline. Overall it’s a regular routine formula based film. Tamil version may attract B and C centers audience due to Dhanush mass appeal. Sai Pallavi did her best director failed to utilize Varalakhmi’s talent by giving normal role which doesn’t have much screen presence. We need to wait and see how the audience will receive.
