Kudos to Prabhu Deva, he has proved once again he is the best to give commercial hits. A lot of maturity in Vijay’s acting skills. Nayanthara has also proved that she can act well other than glamorizing roles; her comedy along with others evokes laughter. Vijay and Vadivelu rule in comedy scenes. Song picturisation especially “Vaada Mapilley” and “Jalsa” is awe-inspiring. Ravi Varman’s camera has captured the locations picture perfect; let it be the rustic backdrop or overseas location. Well done Ravi Varman!
Choreography is well handled by Prabhu Deva, Raju Sundaram, Sophie and many others. Lead stars and co-stars all have done their role very well.
Verdict- Fun filled action thriller for those who love Daredevil stunts and comedy
