C V Kumar has taken up sci-fiction genre to make his debut as director and has done his research on this topic which he had dealt with. He takes his own time to introduce the characters in the first half and the movie gains momentum just before the second half. From then on, the tempo is maintained till the climax. He has also used simple language to make the audience understand the scientific terms. Sundeep Kishan has done an excellent work of playing a confused and rugged cop. The role demands a lot from him and he has given his best for the character. Also in the cast are Lavanya Tripathi, Akshara Gowda, Daniel Balaji and Jackie Shroff.
Everyone has a key role to play in the movie and have been aptly cast to suit the character. Music by Ghibran is top notch and carries the mood of the film beautifully.
On the downside, the screenplay in a few scenes becomes slow which hinders the flow of the film. To sum it up, Maayavan is a good narrative sci-fi thriller.
