Tamil Rockerz had quite some potential to be an interesting thriller provided the makers had delved a little into the backstory of the characters. It could have provided more depth to Tamil Rockerz, which could have struck a chord with the audience. Makers followed quite a one-sided approach regarding the topic of Tamil Rockerz’s website, which left viewers disappointed.
Talking about other aspects, VJ Sabu Joseph is the editor of this film. His work as an editor is appreciated in the industry. A glimpse of his exemplary work can be seen in Tamil Rockerz as well. Despite a weak storyline, it is Sabu’s editing that raises the thrill quotient in this series. There are a few scenes in Tamil Rockerz which proved to be an edge-of-the-seat watch due to his editing. Arivazhagan also ticks all the boxes right when it comes to direction.
Three out of five stars for Tamil Rockerz.
