“Despite of the huge star cast, the film failed to impress me personally. Though the story and concept of the film is good, they confused us in big time through their climax.” said Vanitha who said that she is completely disagreeing with the activities of Jyothi character. “I got really confused and you decide for yourself after watching the movie” she said to the viewers.
Though Vanitha suggested people to watch the film in Amazon Prime as a full length feature film is releasing on behalf of Tamil film industry after a long time, many of the people who watched the review asked her not to review movies anymore. “Vanitha actually I admired u.. But pls dont make reviews for movies like this.. Really it’s a good movie. U have to get more knowledge to review.. This s not ur cup of coffee.” wrote one of a online user whereas another one wrote “Looks like you haven’t watched the movie or dint understand the message. Brilliant acting by jo and the other actor’s. Everybody should watch n decide for themselves”
