Now, Athreya gets up from coma after 26 years and is after the watch. Does Athreya end up getting the watch? How does Mani avenge the murder of his parents? What is Samantha in the film? Answers to be found on screen.
We will be spell bound by the novelty in the story as well as the performance of Surya in 3 roles. The antagonist role was just superb. The influence of Hollywood films is clearly seen. Director managed to narrate the story without any boring elements. Heroines Samantha and Nitya Menon did justice to their roles though Nithya's character is just for 20 minutes. Samantha stole the hearts as usual with her cute expressions.
The main theme of hero avenging his father's death is not new. Also, the climax is just average. Music by Rahman is not upto his standard and their picturization is not that pleasing to the eyes. The romantic track is a bit lengthy.
People who liked Aditya 369 will definitely like this. This stands as rare film among experimental flicks
