A complete entertaining film is delivered by Atlee and team. Entertaining first half makes Vijay fans go crazy . Vijay takes charge from the beginning is complimented well with good dialogues and clean screenplay . Samantha proves once again that she can step up as a good actress when the chance is given, she does a great job. Nainika’s performance was well moulded by Atlee. Her scenes were enjoyable and cute. Motta Rajendran and Radhika play Important roles and perform decently . As much as the first half was well scripted the second half was really weak, dull and predictable.its strays without direction and ends rather raw. Vijay struggles in emotional scenes, Infact weakest points in the film are the emotional scenes . The veteran director Mahendran who plays the villain is quite weak in his character and doesn’t match Vijay’ s heroics. Amy Jackson was just their to fill the screen , her character doesn’t do much in the story. Music was a huge blunder, songs are messy and the Bgm blares all over the film loudly. Cinematography and Art direction are key elements which should be clearly applauded . A planned first half is clouded by a weak and dull second half, but still manages to get 6/10
