In a script that features a confused playscript and with severe lack of characterisation, Vikram Prabhu couldn’t do a lot of when he tries to provide his best. The matter with the movie is that it neither focuses on nationalism nor on a deep and real romance. The dialogues are unoriginal and superannuated. Debutant Ranya is passable, as she doesn’t have a lot of to prove her histrionics. Her lip synch goes for a toss. Karunas in an extended anaglyph proves his skillfulness.

A disclaimer at the film’s starting states that each one the characters as well as the kashmiris and Pakistanis can speak in Tamil and may be a deliberate conceive to reach out the native audiences. However it’s worked in reverse, adding a lot of confusion. However would a Tamil boy converse with a Pakistani girl?

Imman’s background score goes well with mood of the film, however his songs are simply average. Satish Kumar’s picture taking is nice.
