Production values are good.

raghavanAnalysis: The first half of the film is very good. The second half drags a bit because there is not much of story remains once the identity of killers is revealed. Director handled the romance in the film in a matured way. There is no problem of Tamil nativity in this film because the subject is typical Hollywood cop thriller type. The major plus points of the film are director's taking and Kamal Hassan. On the flipside, the serial killing concept of the film might become too serious for a general entertainment seeker.

Screen Talk: Sneha's Bold Exposing Decision!

Sneha has been the darling of many family audiences. She hardly exposed on screen inappropriately. Still, she could bag some good films and make a stand for herself in filmdom. But the competition of glam dolls is hitting her career graph. Looking at that she is now liberalizing her costumes and concealing aspects. Kollywood sources say that she will be showing herself hot on screen from now onwards and she is also going for skin whitening therapy.

Did you remember? Soundarya was very conservative initially. But with the film 'Narasimha' she started showing her navel beauty. Although she was ever conservative through out her career, she never missed showing herself with sex appeal.

Now Sneha also must be planning for that.

My Sex Appeal:
"My simplicity is my beauty quotient", she adds. She also insists that wearing all sorts of dresses and putting on simple matching only would increase the beauty.

She said that she has ample projects in her hand now in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.

Leisure Activity:
Reading books in the leisure time that I find seldom. I like fiction, autobiographies and love stories.

Bollywood dreams:
I have the intention but the opportunity should come my way. Right now my focus is on establishing myself strong in Telugu field.

Dream Role:
I wish to act in a role that brings me national fame. I feel like doing roles those are different from one another. I don't want to do same kind of roles in two films.

Favorite Hero:
I cannot answer to this question. I cat tell about them personally. I like many heroes with respect to performance. Indeed performance again depends on the directors.
