Story Details
An enterprising youngster in a slum wants his people to lead a life of dignity, but has to take on an ambitious capitalist, who only wants to dominate his field.
Others Comment:
If it works to a certain extent, it is because of the earnestness in the performance of Sivakarthikeyan, who, for a change, plays a man with a purpose. It's definitely a new attempt for this actor, who is often cast in roles of a wastrel who gets the girl he loves/stalks, and here, he convincingly captures the idealism of Arivu. And he is ably complemented by the understated Fahadh Faasil (making his Tamil debut), who is impressive in a role whose suspense the film reveals a little too early, thereby reducing its impact. Nayanthara's is largely a supporting role, but the actress makes up for it with her screen presence. The host of supporting actors, from Prakash Raj and Sneha to Rohini and Charle, are well cast, but you can't help wondering if they should have been utilised better. There are also a few scenes that stand out — a gangster war filmed as a live commentary, the cross-cutting between conversations of gangsters and marketing personnel to show us their approaches aren't any different, a mother sentiment scene that also gives the hero a spark of inspiration and a hero moment involving people switching on lights at midnight. Sadly, the overdrawn narration and the preachy tone keep pulling down the film.
