The story although it is old as the hills in the execution writer-director Desingh Periyasamy hits it out of the park.
The film is laced with humor throughout. In the first half, we feel that we are watching a breezy rom-com while in the second half is more like a heist thriller.
Desingh Periyasamy’s writing makes you engaged and entertained for the whole duration of the film.
The screenplay and the dialogues are the real heroes of the film and how with an old story or a story that has been used in several films finds acceptance through its novel screenplay and treatment of the film which is necessary.
The film also has some witty and to the point dialogues which helps the film to a great extent and increases the beauty of the screenplay of the film.
