The Srilankan-Tamil dialect is really good, and the director should be applauded for this. Rupa Manjari’s acting prowess is at its best in this film. The director has exploited her talents by bringing before us the plight of Srilankans, through her heart-rending performance. Naveen Chandra’s work is also good.
, is as usual, great. As the person with the right humanitarian touch, he brings the much-needed emotional depth for the film. One will surely feel that he could have appeared in few more scenes in the film. The character of Selva could have been given more prominence.
Madhu Ambat’s cinematography is the highlight of the film. He matches the expectations of the director.He brings before our eyes the plight of the Srilankan Tamils. Thambi Ramaiah’s humour is only average. Music of Raghunathan is outstanding.
