Makers released the first 10 minutes of a thriller and made a smart move to heighten the intrigue amongst viewers. The visuals in the movie are stunning and Vijay Antony performance is simply amazing. After Pichaikaran it is a great move by the actor turned Music director. Vijay Antony is a multi-talented personality, who can make great movies and he mesmerizes audience greatly with his acting. Hunt for Jayalakshmi begins with a super twist in the interval.
The flashback in the movie had an enough emotional quotient. Saithan with an engaging screenplay and Vijay Antony acting skills attracted the audience. The first half of the film is good and a little drag in second half needs some patience to watch. Overall the movie is quite interesting with an engaging screenplay. The story plot is simple but the narration makes it much more interesting to watch. With a decent first half and an interesting second half, the movie confirmed its success at the box office. However, the climax is not convincing. Saithan is an easily watchable movie for those who like Vijay Antony and an average one for others.
