What about on-screen performances?
The casting for this film is absolutely spot on. Each and every actor does full justice to their respective roles. Suriya delivers an astounding performance as he shoulders the film with his mature acting. His performance is of top quality and the makes the viewer connect with the film almost instantly. This goes down as one of Suriya’s finest performances till date. Aparna Balamurali is good in female lead role. Senior actors like Mohan Babu, and Paresh Rawal are at their usual best.
What about off-screen talents?
The director Sudha Kongara picks an emotionally moving subject and laces it with heart touching moments. Every aspect of the film, including the story, narrative and character designing is commendable. But the screenplay is a tad patchy in the second half as predictability kicks in. On the whole, Sudha does succeed in narrating the story in a touching manner.
Niketh Bommireddy’s cinematography is pure class and so is GV Prakash’s music. The songs and background score leave a long-lasting impression on the viewers. Satish Suriya’s editing is crisp.
