Good Script - Average execution - Bad Casting
26 May 2015 | by SatiagoManezSee all my reviews

The movie doesn't stand strong with the communism principles or in the entertainment angle. The first half is terribly boring with some good dialogues reflecting communism. Only the director knows why in the name of god the songs where even there in this movie, if it was under the producers pressure I feel bad for the creator!

The good thing about the movie is that it shows both the sides of the revolutions. There has been a great effort put in to make the jail realistic and it has been effective. The Tamil conversations between the peers from Delhi could have been in English/Hindi and subtitled in Tamil to make it more authentic.

Coming to cast they have tried their best to fit Arya in the character with the looks, but it didn't just workout. For such a important character in the movie the casting could have even been a well suited new face. The character of Karthika appears just not to make the movie so dry. The costumes and dialogues for the pair during the expedition just don't gel up. Vijay Sethupathi and Shaam has done justice to their characters.
