Over-hyped is my verdict. The premise of the story seemed excellent but I felt the film went down the path of pandering to mass stardom and also political ambitions. It could’ve been a wonderful outing for Vijay if he had stayed playing the role of a ruthless corporate CEO. Till about a quarter of the movie, it was well executed. Post the legal victory scene, it went downhill for me: predictable song and action sequences and an utter under-utilization of a heroine.

Sleeping Beauties by an author
In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, and the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain?
