Great movie....
9 September 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie. Enjoyed the thriller and saw a very good tamil film after a long time...Great acting by Arvind and Ravi...Credit should be given to director Raja..Good concept and well narrated with no deviation..Raja should continue to do straight films, even if it takes a year.

Talking of music, just loved "kaadhal cricket" song and the awesome voice of the singer. The last song was also good and peppy. Hope this will change the attitude of most of the tamil directors, as long as the story is good and well narrated, it will be a big hit. This also proves, a movie with unrealistic scenes and characters can be successful and in fact hugely successful movie. Big kudos to the entire Thani Oruvan team. All the best..
