A punch in the gut about casteism!!!
Maari Selvaraj should be a very important filmmaker of our times. Not only is his voice important, he also seems well balanced. He does not propose overnight solutions.

A passionately made emotional drama that has a realistic approach and strong performances.
Director Mari Selvaraj has come up with quite a familiar script. But his filmmaking is out of the box and the way he has presented the content stands a class apart.
