Pandiraj obviously wanted to attempt something new but he was led into including commercial ingredients like any other filmmaker, the result is just an average watch

S Saraswathi, REDIFF
An engaging story backed with neat performance of Vishal and Catherine Tresa

Director Pandiraj tries his hand in action thriller, and the end result is a mixed bag
