Star-casts and Performance:
Sundar C limits himself to a naturalistic performance and there are no exaggerations. Anuya looks perfect with her role and emotes well. There is nothing much to boast about the liplock and it was just a crap idea to sensationalism. Vadivelu steals the show with some of his best comedy liners, but most of them are parallel tracks. Bose Venkat takes on an impressive show and his grey-shaded characterization is colossal. Veteran actor G. Srinivasan also does justice to his role.
Sundar C has copied the most famous Hollywood film ‘Carlito’s Way’ that had Al Pacino and Sean Penn in lead roles. The very beginning of the film till the end seems to be more of the same plot. The characters are blatantly the same. Sundar C, Bose Venkat’s grey shaded role, Anuya as dancer. Everything has been replicated from the Hollywood movie. However, there are some interesting moments of commercial ingredients.
D. Imman’s music is average and two songs are appreciable. Cinematography has some realistic shots and editing is neat and clean. Art direction requires special mention as set works doesn’t boast of artificialness.
Sundar C has copied the film from Hollywood movie ‘Carlito’s Way’, but has kept it a point of entertaining the audiences with some commercial ingredients. A kind request to Sundar C – one can get influenced or inspired from another work. But in case of copycatting, they can mention a ‘Thank You’ note to the original creators.
