Yuvan Shankar Raja elevated the scenes with his impactful background music. However his music, except for couple of songs turned out to be average. Songs placement slowed the pace of the narration.
George C Williams with his cinematography captured the natural scenic locations in a beautiful manner. High voltage action scenes are well choreographed while dialogues are impactful and powerful. However editing of Ruben’s could have been far better.
