Verdict - Wholesome Family entertainer
While Mersal suffers from a few of the cliches of the masala entertainer, however Director Atlee manages to give the film amazing pacing and knows exactly what buttons to push to keep the audience engaged. Vijay gives one of the most balanced performances of his career and clearly shines.
The cinematography and set designs look good and AR Rahman background score and songs really complement the film. On the whole Mersal manages to a wholesome family entertainer.
