Total rubbish of a movie. A supposedly Gangster flick with comic elements, the film falls flat. Dhanush tries to gamely carry this so- called movie on his own, but despite his decent acting and timing, it really doesn’t redeem it.
The story is the same masala related to a Don of a area. In Tamil, this guy will be a hero, a Porikki (tapori) type and a well heeled fair girl would turn up to spice the romantic angle. The bad cop item is also there. It was boring. Of course, these movies have audience and make some money. So, if you like Porriki type of tamil movie, this may be your timepass to watch. Otherwise, stay out.
