Technicals:

Director Anand Shankar has succeeded in making Vikram do a full length villain’s role. Action scenes and sudden twists are good, but one is left with a feeling that the film is quite slow. Some scenes are sans any logic. Harris Jairaj’s music numbers fail to liven up, but the background music is quite enthralling. The production values, cinematography and editing are good.
