Much of the publicity surrounding the movie has been focused on actor Vikram himself and deservedly so. The only reason people are still watching this movie is for the actor’s phenomenal commitment and screen presence, but this movie does him no justice whatsoever. Vikram has put his body and soul into this role and pulled off a flawless performance when surrounded by a floundering cast and director – he is clearly still one of the finest actors of our generation. Santhanam’s comedic timing is impeccable and also deserves special mention for helping to liven up the movie. Amy Jackson looks every bit like a model and is really easy on the eyes, though we have seen better acting skills in annual day functions at high schools
I is perhaps the biggest disappointment for Tamil cinema this year and it’s just January. I sure hope the rest of the year does not follow in this note.
