Director Lakshmy Ramakrishnan has scripted a road story with a lot of interesting characters interspersed. The inter-weaving of the lives of so many characters has been done with a lot of clarity, ensuring that there is no blurring of lines. Shabeer, despite being a debutant, has given a very good performance. Pia delivers a powerful performance in her role as Maya. Sruthi makes a very good debut in Kollywood with this movie, and is sure to go a long way here. The veterans Y Gee Mahendra, AL Alagappan, Thambi Ramaiah and Viji Chandrasekar add value to the movie with their performances. Bala Saravanan and Gautham Kurup have also essayed their roles well. Vinod Bharathi’s cinematography is good and the unique angles need a special mention. The music by Madley Blues is noteworthy and keeps the viewers entertained.
