Asuran Movie Review and Rating:
Telling a story about how the poor are exploited and their land is grabbed off, Vetrimaaran does a great job of staying true to the story. Collaborating with Dhanush yet again, he pulled off a hit with his brilliant storytelling.
Dhanush puts up a stellar performance. His fierce and raging acting is thrilling to see on the big screen. And to match up to his performance, each and every actor in the film does complete justice to their characters.
Even G.V. Prakash Kumar’s music is raging. His music in the fight sequences and dialogue scenes deserves a special mention. Velraj’s visuals are also brilliant. The screenplay of the film is gripping and engaging.
Overall, it is one more masterclass from Vetrimaaran and Dhanush combination. This film will be celebrated by film lovers and fans of Vetrimaaran and Dhanush. Surely a must watch film. Don’t miss this film on the big screen.
