Karma is a boomerang, however you furl it, bounces back to you
11 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The summary tells the whole story, the movie is very gripping, you have to be very attentive to catch every minute detail right from start the movie is well made, following points have caught my attention

1. Masked killer (Makes you want to know who is inside), great introduction

2. Rahman rubbing the eyes, which is shown as graphic in introduction. 3. Character of gautham is well made. 4. Up to the climax the killer is given great importance, but the real motive behind the story is ordinary and that intricate details are also well woven in between the plot to minute detail. 5. Ultimately our protagonist falls victim to a fate which he knows far later, but cant much help.

I cant believe a debutant director has made this movie. Tamil cinema has gone to a new level, i would rate this movie above Thani Oruvan and 24.

Surprising twist till last frame.

One of the excellent role portrayed by Rahman

Director karthick Naren is one to be taken very seriously
