D. Immans songs are pleasant to hear, but lack recall value and as usual scores his points in the background score. Cinematographer V.

Nirmal is another major contributor keeping the narration flowing at the right pace and makes an impression without resorting to any fancy cuts. Anbazhagan has lifted the premise and the villain character from No Country For Old Men directed by the Coen brothers which is one of the most influential films of the modern era. However, it is difficult for the audience to root for the lovers Anandhi and Chandran as there are not enough scenes to build their love organically.

Babu (debutant Kishore) and Bharani are youngsters who confidently think themselves as muthalalis as they are self-employed. They have a lorry, which earns them their daily bread. ...Read full review
