Rating: 3.5/5, Site: times of india
Parthiban has clearly mentioned in his pre-release interviews that his only intention behind doing this film was to find out if a non-linear story could be filmed as a single-shot film. Like the makers of the early silent films, who were more interested in exploring the new technology that was cinema and finding out how it could be used, which came in handy for those that came after them, Parthiban has, with this film, broken a path for future filmmakers to experiment with unconventional storytelling using the single-shot technique. There are several moments when you marvel at the smoothness with which the scenes transition from one time period to the next. Parthiban also uses music (AR Rahman, whose stirring score is like a ray of light in this film’s dark world) sound effects cleverly to make us forget that entire film has been shot in one place, inside the huge set that we are shown in the making-of video. In that sense, this ‘project’ is definitely a success as Parthiban achieves what he set out to do.

The writing is not slender — but the production is, so, everything has to be accommodated keeping the set design in mind. As a result of this onslaught, some moments — like a character’s affair or when someone dies by immolation, or when Parthiban uses voiceover as a device to fill up narrative gaps — needed elaborate staging and better emotional payoff. Sometimes a lot is packed in the frame that you wish there was a little more pacing [Rahman’s gentle music does this for the most part] and coherence between the scenes. For an average viewer, this might not be a problem. But for us film writers, it comes across as too easy, too convenient at times. Nevertheless, Parthiban does dare to dream big. He seems to enjoy taking risks, outdoing himself. Keep daring, Parthiban.
The press show was an uncensored version; no dialog mutes. We saw the film in its actual form!
