Paayum Puli is an eminently watchable flick. But it falls short of what you would expect from Suseenthiran. The film follows a linear narration. More surprisingly it reveals quite a lot quite early on. The undercover aspect is revealed in a few minutes. The trump card of the film which is the identity of the villain too is revealed at mid point.While this in itself is not a problem there isn’t enough tension to keep us hooked.
