Writers Suresh and Balakrishnan going by the pen name Subha have written this story, which has been detailed to so much perfection and directed by Mohan Raja. This director who has delivered hits through remakes decided to go for an original script, and look how it paid off. His choice of lead comes as no surprise, and Jayam Ravi too carries himself aptly. The icing on the cake comes in the form of Arvindh Swami. I am going to have to go to the next paragraph to talk about him.

Arvindh Swami's Siddarth Abhimanyu has aptly been cast, so much so that it is almost impossible to not like him. His fiendish smile, toned physique and that unique sense of charisma that he carries with him fills the screen and enthralls the audience. Very few actors have that gift, that screen presence, where in you can't focus on anybody else on screen while they are present. Thambi Ramaiah deserves a special mention for his portrayal of the ludicrous Sengalvarayan who has you in splits for most of the time.

Jayam Ravi does a neat job as an upright Police officer, but, most of the time gets eclipsed by Siddarth Abhimanyu's screen presence. Nayanthara has an important role too, and kudos to Mohan Raja for not using the female lead just for the sole purpose of introducing a love track and duets. The screenplay never falters for a single moment and Hiphop thamizha's background score sure does enrapture your stark attention.

Mithran(Jayam Ravi) and his group of friends are IPS officer trainees who go about helping people anonymously using their wit and strength. Mithran, though, has plans of his own, and that is to track and bring down the main people responsible for all the crimes in the city. That is when he learns Siddarth Abhimanyu(Arvindh Swami) is the man behind everything and his only aim from then on becomes to bring Siddarth down.

One never really feels the movie running for a solid 2 hours and 40 minutes until they come out and take a look at their watch/phone. That simply explains why the movie is already on its way to become a blockbuster.
