Written and Directed in an Amazing Way

The film is curated with the immense love of the filmmaker Vijay. He packed in enough layers of drama and emotion. A wonderful screenplay written by K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, Madhan Karky (Tamil) and Rajat Arora (Hindi) keeps the audience tied till the edge to see what the story unfolds in the next minute.

A special shout-out to Raj Arun, who portrays the role of producer turned politician R. M. Veerappan. He stands still and firm against Ranaut’s character and delivers a winning performance. Tamil Nadu’s former chief minister M. Karunanidhi’s role is played by south actor Nassar is superb.
