Analysis
LIE is a Stylish, Action, and Intellectual Thriller, The twists in the story are impressive. Particularly teh cat and mouse game between Arun and Nithiin was very stylish. The narration of the story is more gripping than a story.The film is screened in exciting locations. In the first half, we see two songs and sequence of chases, along with comedy of Prithvi Raj, Barhmaji and Sudarshan.

But in the second half, It will be a bit tedious to watch. When Padmanadam has to show his Villainism, the story gets misguide. There is no mention as for why he has become the most wanted criminal. The story revolves around one element, Director’s intelligence appears in the scenes. Some dialogues and equations become difficult to understand by the general audience. The whole movie goes in a serious mode. Entertainment can not be expected from such movies. The love track between the lead pair is good to watch. Those who like Action thrillers and Mindgame films will like this film.
