Story : The film opens with the death of Krishnan(Surya old) and his son Major Surya ( Surya) at a mission in the Indian air force.The film shows the transformation of
teenager Surya into a Man,the bonding between father&son ,the ups and downs of Surya's life and his father's love,support for the son & the everlasting infulence on him.
Surya is awesome.the way he lived the charecters,the way he moulded him self as a teenager,a loverboy,a well built army person& above all a 60year old dad shows his
love & commitment to his job.Surya s/o Krishnan is definitely his best performance till date.
Writer&Director Gautam Vasudev Menon did a commendable job .He just transformed a common man's life onto the celluloid.There are many moments any of us can
identify ourselves with the charecters on screen.
Music( Harris Jayaraj) , Makeup ( Bhanu,Yogesh) are good.
Camera (Ratnavelu),Editing(Anthony) are neat.Art by Rajeevan is worth mentioning (especially the vintage look is good )
Simran (as old lady),Sameera Reddy,Divya Spandana are adequate.
The film has style,poetic love episodes,cool music & touching emotions and at times you cannot ignore the tamil flavour & very formal scenes within the family.
The film is very slow.the sluggish pace &,length can drag down your opinion from bagundhi to bane undhi.
Narrative style ( hero narrating the entire story,sitting in the copter, to his dad who is no more) won't go well with our audience.
Public Talk : Good but slow,Worth watching if you have got some patience.
Industry Talk :Ok in A centers .But won't work in other areas.
