Now, after flashback, Siddharth takes Nitya to USA for treatment. What will happen is rest of the story. What is 180 is the main story.

180 Review

Siddarth has proved that he is good enough to handle tough roles and deliver it with aplomb. He is cool and casual in the first half. Bubbly and charming he is. His romantic escapades are interesting. Nithya Menon, with her girl next-door looks is perfect foil for the role. Prioya Anand plays her role with aplomb.  Sri Charan as Siddharth’s friend deserves a mention. Mouli walks away with aplause for his portrayal. The cast includes Geetha, Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, Thanikala Bharani and Janaki Sabesh.

Cinematography by Balasubramaniam is a big asset for the film which brings out a realistic feel with some innovative angles. Shot with RED digital camera, it gives us a natural feel, right from the titles, every frame looked stunning and picture perfect. Music by Shareth is blissful and goes well with the story. ‘AJ’ and ‘Nee Maatalo’ are quiet good on screen with Siddharth and Priya’s cool romantic visuals. Background music is fine. Dialogues penned by Subha are good in parts.

First Talk: 180 is rich, urbane and stylish movie. The first half of the film keeps you engaged with some interesting moments while the second half is dragging.
