As usual, Vijay Sethupathi had done a fantastic job. Trisha had performed well and proved that she could play sensitively. Devadarshini, Murugadoss and Bhagavathi had played their part excellently well. Janagaraj and Kavithalaya Krishnan’s cameo appearance is also good. Adithya Bhaskar and Gouri Kishan had also done justice to their roles.
A lot of movies are being made as romantic entertainers. But, not all of them touch the heart, except a few. Premkumar has come with a simple romantic script, but his narration is excellent. Govind Vasantha’s songs and the BGM are a great support to the film. The cinematography is also excellent. Chinmayi Sripaada had rendered a superb performance through her voice over for Trisha. Small incidents that happened in the childhood are still a great treasure and the director has brought it in front of our eyes. After watching this film, many people might go nostalgic.
What’s Not There?
96 takes all the middle-aged people to their childhood. Many people go nostalgic and their memories project their first love in front of them, after watching 96. Totally, 96 is a feel-good movie that could be watched more than once!
