Performance of Prithvi Raj Sukumaran as Surya become the backbone of this flick. He had once again given a really controlled, matured yet aggressive performance and really carried the emotional turmoil of the character to the heart of the audience.

Pashupathy, Jayaprakash, Kishore etc had given great performance as well in the movie.
The DOP of the film was done by Shamdat Sainudheen and his frames were really great. Some shots which had given aerial view were terrific and it really set the tone of the movie. Music by Anil Johnson was decent and background scoring was very good as well. Ayoob Khan’s Editing also made the movie to move fast.
