Justin Prabhakaran and Mark Robin came with a good background scores. There is one situational song and the background score elevated the scenes. The cinematography of Deepak Kumar is in sync with the storyline. He used the camera angles to good effect to take movie lovers into the story. The editing of Viplav Nyshadham is quite good and could have been done with a few drags. Dialogues are natural and realistic and one should complement the director and the writers for such good work. Production values are good.
