Media starts propagating that Terrorists have attacked the train and Police feels that Shivaji and Saroji are the terrorists and starts chasing them while train becomes unstoppable due to technical problem. What happened next? .. forms the story
Dhanush has done justice to his role as vendor with the railway department, He just appeared like a Railway worker. He poured oxygen to some scenes with his performance and lifted those scenes. Dahush has a funny body launge which generated humour. Keerthi Suresh played de-glamour role but still she was beautiful. Rest of the cast were so..so!.
Background Music by Imman was far better than his tunes. It’s not an easy task to shoot a complete film in train, the film definitely tells the camera man’s hard work in every scene. The train cross the Bridge scene was really thrilling . More such scenes should have been incorporated in the film to make the “Rail” journey more interesting.
Director Prabhu Solomon has picked up an interesting script. The movie seems to be inspired for a Hollywood film “Unstoppable” with a love story embed into it. The first half is entertaining with jokes, and Dhanush efforts to make Keerti fall in love.
However, Since the movie is completely deals with Train journey and runtime of two and half hours is drawback for the film . Although the film has entertainment, emotions and thrill factor but lacks in execution. The movie lacks tense moments which is a minus. The action scenes over the train top and pre-climax and climax are not engaging. Overall, Rail has a good first half and boring second half which makes it a painful journey.
