As a debut director, Aditya Baskaran has delivered a good job. Though the film underlines a good message to the audience, the film loses its grip at certain points. While talking about the performance of the artists, majority of them despite being new faces, has played their roles nearing to perfection. Especially, the performance of Jai Quehaeni and Hashim Zain is worth the mention. The presence of Robo Shankar as a security guard is one of the main highlights of the film. Music and background score composed by Kaashif Rafiq is impressive. The camera angles, which boosts sleek and crisp cuts by the editor, has enhanced the pace of the film.
