From scene one, Sarkar only belongs to superstar Vijay. He steals the show with his standout performance and is extremely good in all the emotional scenes. There are several mass elevation scenes executed for him and fans will just love Vijay as the socially responsible Sundar Ramaswamy. Yet another surprise package of the film is Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar. She is top notch as the lady politician and has terrific screen presence.
The second half is where the film goes for a toss. Things become routine and Murugadoss showcases the set up which is quite common in every political film where an outsider tries to take on the mighty politicians and wins over them. One more biggest disadvantage is that the film lacks entertainment quotient. From scene one, the proceedings are serious and this might not go well with a section of the Telugu audience who expect popcorn entertainment
