How about On-Screen Stars performance.?
Dulquer Salman is impressive in his role. He looks cool and stylish. Ritu Varma is surprise package of the film. Her innocence helped towards the interval for the twist given. Dulquer, Ritu chemistry is good but there is no logic behind their love story. Rakshan and Niranjani are just okay. Gowtham Menon is impressive in the role of cop. Anish Kuruvilla suited as a rich business man. Others are fine.
How about off Screen Talents?
Cinematographer Bhaskaran gives the best output for the film. BGM by Harshavardhan Rameshwar is good too. Masala Coffee songs are visually good. Editor could have done a better job by chopping of unnecessary scenes in first half. Desingh Periyaswamy has written fantastic screenplay when compared to the story. However the first 15-20 minutes is a bore. The director is in driving seat in the second half. Overall he has done a decent job.

Routine first half
Kanulu Kanulanu Dochayante will definitely give you a different experience. The movie comes out as a surprise towards the end of first half.
