Director Vishnuvardhan and Ajith Kumar team up once again after almost six years for
"Arrambam". Their last film together was "Billa", which was a blockbuster. This time, the director seems to be inspired by the 26/11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, which results in an action-packed, stylish entertainer, rich in thrills and spills.

In the beginning, we see the city of Mumbai being victimized by a series of bomb explosions. Supposedly, the man responsible for it is Ashok Kumar (Ajith) who, together with his girlfriend Maya (Nayantara), kidnaps Arjun (Arya), a computer hacker, to materialize his plans. If he refuses, they will kill his girlfriend Anitha (Taapsee Pannu). Both of them become successful in bringing down the server of a media house. However, as Ashok moves closer to fulfilling his goals, the police arrest him. The second half is full of twists and turns. There are a lot of revelations as well. What is the actual motive behind the bomb explosions? Why does Ashok target a media house? Is he really a terrorist? To know the answers, you have to watch the film.

Ajith not only puts on weight for the film, he also puts on a nuanced and low-key act. Arya is excellent in the role of a happy-go-lucky hacker. On the downside, both Nayantara and Taapsee's roles are just eye candy. Director Vishnuvardhan, Editor Sreekar Prasad and writer Subha deserve accolades for managing to keep the audience interested in a major portion of the movie. There are not much draggy moments. The screenplay is crisp and taut enough to keep the audiences hooked for two and a half hours.

Parts of the escape plan are unbelievable and the heroes escaping unscathed throughout the entire action sequence is another hard to believe moment. Although the film's continuity and cohesion is initially dubious, it gets better as it progresses. The background score by Yuvan is particularly worth mentioning as it adds depth to the story and his "Stylish Tamilichi" is one of the notable songs. Overall, despite its minor flaws, "Arrambam" is a stylish action entertainer that has enough thrills to keep you hooked throughout its running time.
