Verdict - An engaging thriller with a relevant social message. The director K.V. Anand, who is well known for blockbuster films like Ayan (2009) and Ko (2011) and actor Vijay Sethupathi, who is currently on a roll with back to back successful films like Naanum Rowdy Dhaan (2015), Sethupathi (2016), Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum (2016) and []... ...Read full review
Director K. V. Anand and his writers duo Subha in their previous collaborations have regularly taken up a social issue and presented it in a nice commercial package.
