Plot
Abdul Khaliq (Silambarasan) returns from Dubai and relives one day's incidents multiple times. He is stuck in a loop and he has a task -- to stop the assassination of Chief Minister (SA Chandrasekhar). There is a bad cop Danushkodi ( SJ Suryah). He is also struck in time loop and he wants the murder to happen.

Performance
Silambarasan holds the movie together. He is at his best. Equally strong is SJ Suryah. He plays a complex villain role well. His dialogue delivery and body language is good. Kalyani Priyadharshan has a decent outing. The likes of Premgi, Karunakaran and SAC chip in well.
