Analysis

Director R Panneerselvam has characterized the characters Karuppan, Anbu and Maayi well. Kathir character should have been designed a bit well and Bobby Simha should have been given some weight. However, we could say that the script is not new. If some other artist had done this role other than Vijay Sethupathi, the movie would have gone dud at the box office.Sethupathi, the movie would have gone dud at the box office.
