Arulnithi is a call taxi driver who is accidentally accused for a murder. How he proves himself as not-guilty forms the crux of the story.
Arulnithi’s acting is very decent and once again he impresses with his script selection. Mahima Nambiar does well as hero’s love interest, she has also got good character scope. Mu.Maran’s script is fine and actually fruitful to the crime thriller genre. Treatment is different and the inter-linked writing is convincing. Sam.C.S’s background music is the centre of attraction as he stands as the pillar of support to the flow. Aravinnd Singh’s cinematography is satisfying, hasn’t tried anything different but delivered what the movie demands. San Lokesh’s editing is neat and he done his work correctly, appreciation for restricting the run time exactly to 2hrs. Things get intriguing close to the interval block and break pauses with a curiosity. Climax is great as director’s way of revealing the twist in the ending sequence stands out.
Screenplay is below par and with the given script, director could have definitely done a lot more better & unique work on the presentation. Dialogues are less on point, there are some socially irresponsible ones too. Film takes a long time in the beginning to enter the main zone, also the portions are boring. There are plenty of cinematic moments induced in the first 30mins which slows down the progression completely. Certain logical errors exist in the later half, left abruptly without any proper justification. There are countless number of characters getting introduced at regular interval, which tends the main fall of the progress. None of the supporting artists have important roles or depth in their characterization, hence there’s no impact when the twists appear.Villain role lacks connect right from the beginning, so there’s no way of attachment with the storyline.
TO CONCLUDE – Mediocre screenplay leaves out a moderate thriller despite of different treatment.
Movie Rating – 2.5/ 5.
