Don't read reviews...! Go...!! Watch it..!!!
7 May 2016 | by nragulSee all my reviews

This movie possess everything:

  • Strong story base


  • Sci-fi fantasy


  • Romance, though below par from the standard of entire movie


  • Deadly villain


  • Unexpected twists


  • Family drama


  • perfect logic loops


A once in a decade kind of film, very carefully handled in terms of screenplay and direction. The movie starts in a typical sci-fi way, then slowly takes you into a roller-coaster ride with some unimaginable and unpredictable destinations.

Cinematography & VFX deserves a special mention as this film could have been nothing without this team.

In a sci-fi film, you cannot think of songs to gel up with the pace of the film, but here, they were awesomely handled. BGM, out of word - Rahman rules all over.

Its triple role for Surya as Athreya/Mani/Sethuraman and he rules the entire movie with his performance. The antagonist Athreya is on top of the rest.

Amidst a completely occupied screen space for the lead actor, Samantha and Nithya Menon have got decent roles and they have done their parts well.

The movie do have a few glitches in the first half, but they are completely negligible for its 'never seen before' kind of feel, when your anticipation goes wrong all the time.

Verdict: Just go for it...!
