Based on Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s’s Pink, this emotional tale sketches the plight & predicament of 3 young working women all of whom accidentally get involved in a court case. A seasoned lawyer, who had withdrawn himself into a shell owing to personal reasons, comes out of his cocoon with a view to bail them all out of the case, literally & emotionally!

Ajith is subdued most of the time & has come up with a powerful performance. His silence almost throughout communicates much more than is rarely spoken words! His style of dialogue delivery too is very effective1 Sample this- Think before you act; but don’t think you walk! (Yochichu nadakanum; yochichikette nadakka koodaadhu!)

Rangaraj Pandey as the opposing advocate is very natural spontaneous!

Shraddha Srinath has come up with a measured performance; Abirami Venkatachalam has executed herself admirably-she is at her best when she breaks out during interrogation at the court room; Andrea Tariang is adequate.

Vinoth has obviously added some extra elements to satisfy the fans of Thala all of which are within the stipulated limits of cinematic liberties!

The plot revolves around 3 employed girls living in a flat eking out a decent living so as to support their families.

While at dinner following an event, the 3 are befriended by 3 youngsters, one of them already acquainted with one of the girls. When one of them steps outside tolerable limits, one of the girls hits him & the trio take to their heels!

Even before the girls could lodge a complaint in defence, the influential boys file a back-dated complaint in offence!

Enters Bharat Subramaniam (Ajith Kumar) who is down emotionally as he had lost his wife (Vidya Balan) & still born twins under delicate circumstances!

He comes out of his self-imposed exile & decides to defend the girls!
The court room sequences sizzle & sparkle with the dos & don’ts meant for both the sexes!

Yuvan Shankar Raja has scored the background effectively.

Nirav Shah’s camera work is of high standards.



The central theme deliberates on the consent of women while men make advances in a very critical manner, providing scope for some food for thought!
