Keerthy is a livewire and fits the romance part well complementing the action sequences.

Defects: Too many twists ruin the second half and fights you lose count of. Film goers should go for it if they are up for action and little romance.
Technical aspects: The ace director comes back with a bang, after a few failures in the recent past. DoP also is to be credited for good frames. Action director also did a good job.
