Verdict: Tony is a never-before-seen thriller made in Sandalwood. This one should not be missed. Hats off to Jayatheertha.
Full marks to Srinagara Kitty for giving life to his character with good expression and dialogue delivery. Aindritha Ray has justified her role with simple but significant performance. Music by Sadhu Kokila has some foot-tapping numbers. Raghu Dixit impresses you with a folk number "Naavu kooguva..." Sugnan's camera work is brilliant in most parts.
Tony' tonic of entertainment is fed in excess. There is moral, there is definitely stuff in this director Jayathirtha and he has gone overboard. It is the deviation that distracts the mood of this 'Pukka' entertainer qualities film. The stuff is captivating in the main track. The unconnected tracks that test the patience could have been avoided.
