There is no doubt that Suriya's performance is very good. But the screen play might have been improved not to show heart transparent surgery. It might be difficult to see for the kids. The fight scene taken on roller coaster ride was too lengthy. Eventhough comedy and romance was there in the movie, only scary part can remain on the people's mind after watching this movie. Mattraan Matri Edukka Vendiya Padam.
