Did he succeed in getting the promotion forms the rest of the story. 

Review

Though the film followed the same old template of regular thriller films, the movie sure has some edge-of-the-seat moments which are engaging. Director Pradeep impressed with his narration. Without focusing on unnecessary elements, Pradeep stood on the point throughout the film and executed the script perfectly. But, some repetitive scenes and slow narration might irk some audience. 

Coming to the technical elements, music by Simon K King is too good. His engaging BGM made the film even more impressive. Production values are just up to the mark. The visuals by cinematographer Rasamathi are truly impressive. His camera angles and visuals are worth appreciating. Editing by K.L. Praveen is decent. The runtime is crisp. 

Sumanth's subtle performance is the biggest plus point for the film and the actor has pulled off the character with ease. Nanditha Swetha doesn't have much scope for performance but justified her role. Nasser and Jaya Prakash delivered honest performances in the film. The rest of the actors also managed to impress the audience. 

Verdict

A worth-watching crime thriller.
