also gained hype and expectations, did the movie live up to them?
These are some common questions for which people would want answers when they want to know about the movie. At the end we would conclude all the below answers into a “Simple Verdict”.
Q.1) What is the story?

The channel’s boss, Kalyan is more interested in making money through sensationalism and agrees for a deal with politician Maniarasu, who doesn’t have a good reputation amongst public.

Due to which Tilak quits his job and along with his friends in the channel, teams up with Mayilvaganan, the owner of a struggling channel.
Q.2) How were the performances?
A: Tilak being played Vijay Sethupathy is a huge positive in this film. . His casual attitude for comedy and natural performance makes him shine throughout the film. Mayilvaganan played by T. Rajendar has just done this character in his usual style by giving his trademark punches. Its good to see him on screen. Kalyan played by Akashdeep is convincing and follows his own style. Madonna has done a neat job of playing her role. Maniarasu has a played his character really well and it was needed. Jagan and Pandiraj have done given their best. Vikranth’s role seemed more of a extended cameo although he had done a good job of playing his role.
Q.3) What worked in the film?
A: The story content was a huge plus, KV anand made sure that the film had created impacts with the various social issues discussed in the film. The songs were enjoyable especially the “happy happy new year-u”. Hip Hop Adi had given good background scores especially during one car chase scene is to be mentioned.Certain scenes were added in the film just to show the dark side of media these scenes were used well to show they cheat the audience. The interval block was taken well and and is a scene to watch out for. Dialogues are also worth to be mentioned. A huge positive for this film is the casting and the performances by the various artists.
Q.4) What didn’t work in the film?
A: The movie starts in a fast pace but somehow just doesnt keep that pace constant througiut the film. The running time of the movie seemed to be a bit long which i think is the reason why the pace got dropped. With the first half being neat the second half suddenly became a mixture of many commercial elements although the movie ends neatly.
NOW THE VERDICT WILL BE FRAMED FROM THE ABOVE ANSWERS.
