Dhansika: The surprise package
All the actors have done their role well in this movie; let it be Kalaiyarasan or Mime Gopi. But the one who stole the show in this film is none other than Sai Dhansika. The actress was in her full swing, and she delivered a power packed performance in a solid character.
The film is top notch in its technical department too. Prasanna Kumar’s cinematography is brilliant, and he captured the beauty of hill station with finesse. John’s background score too played a crucial role in elevating the overall mood of the movie.
