Our take

Vijay Sethupathi sails through the film effortlessly in his role and Trisha also aces her performance as a married woman who can't stop indulging in emotional infidelity. Composer Govind Menon’s score is a very big plus for the film as it helps us feel the happiness, the dilemma and the eternal longing that the characters have to deal with.

Director C Prem Kumar on 96

In an interview with The Hindu, 96 director C Prem Kumar said, “I could not make it to the reunion, but later that day, I met a few of my friends who participated, and as I was listening, the story of two of the schoolmates was fascinating. The film is my imagination of what it would be like if these two characters - Ram and Janaki - met at such an reunion and what could have probably happened. The film is about them meeting after 22 years.”

Early morning shows cancelled

"#96TheMovie Early morning shows cancelled. Tamil Cinema fans will think twice before booking early morning show tickets, as most of the movie morning shows are getting cancelled. I feel NOC has to be received 3 days before release, so there won’t be last minute KDM issues," trade analyst Sathish Kumar M said via Twitter.

Baradwaj Rangan on 96
