If you think, a build up given for a hero to be fitting to what good things he is doing, you have mistaken Tamil films.

Whatever the hero does is heroic, is our norm.Vikram is a seizurer of vehicles ovderdue on instalments - who works for local thug Sait (Hareesh Peradi).  One day while Sketch is in the process of seizing a vehicle, of her friend, a pretty girl Ammu (Tamannah) mistakes him as a thief. Later the friend and Ammu were thinking he was following the friend. Sketch(Jeeva)'s father agreed to a proposal of marriage to Sketch's educated  younger brother, saying first son can never get a good educated girl as he is in wrong job and also not educated.  This hurts Sketch. Now he thinks about Ammu, and challenges (in booze) to his friends that this  will be his lvoer in 2 days. Ammu belongs to a Brahmin family, she did not heed to his advances as she thinks he is a thug. It is long, until she comes to know of his good nature, she starts reciprocating. Also, she claims that he is the man of her dreams. If the film moved along to portray only the love scene by scene afterward, then it would have been a great love hit. Alternatively if the film further and further portrayed Sketch with his three friends Kumar, Bhaskar (Sreeman) and Guna (Vishwanth) scene by scene with nuances of their friendship lot more than what it showed this would have been a great friendship hit film. But unfortunately the film wants to do everything without depth and wants to go on the beaten track.

When Sketch in one mood asks Sait what he wants, Sait lets his inner mind, he says a vintage fiat car of one dreaded gangster Royapuram Kumar (Baburaj) once belonged to his father that Kumar took away that made his father die. Kumar considers it as a priced possession and never leaves any chance. Without any hesitation, Sketch challenges that he  will do the job. Sait promises 10 sovereign gold chain - even if Sketch takes a selfie in possession of the car. Sketch accomplishes his task with a good plan.Post success of this seizure is the ghastly murders of his friends one by one. Now, a furious Sketch wants to take revenge on the culprit who is behind his friends’ death. But fate has something else in store for him and the film ends with a riveting climax.

The plot is slow in revealing and the film largely relies on Vikram’s screen presence and the versatility. Although He doesn’t disappoint (despite a story as old as a hill) I cant digest the question coming in mind - why on earth he chose to act in such a lifeless story– Vikram  lives like a North Madras guy inch by inch. Tamannah is beautiful,expressive, homely in normal scenes and adds glamour in songs,  All others like Aruldoss, Hareesh Peradi, Sreeman and R.K. Suresh do their parts well. Soori has not much to do.But whatever scenes given to him he excels. Vijay Chander could have done well  on a specialist screenplay, rather than bits and pieces story. Also, there’s no justification for Vikram choosing this profession despite hailing from a decent family. Action sequences especially the one in the pre interval scene is fabulous. S.Thaman's Songs are really good and hummable but matching them with the situation is still unfinished job for the director.  Rerecording is good.  M. Sukumar's Camera in love and romantic scenes as well as fighting scenes was captivating.  But so many scenes were dull, as the choice of colour was light or non  matching to the scenes.

Our rating 3.1 out of 5  3.1/5
