He has done a dedicated job and has pulled of his character well. Must mention, his action sequences with the 'Action King' Arjun is on point.
Versatile actor Arjun Sarja plays a stylish and ruthless baddie. Also, his performance is one point. Samantha who has a small yet prominent role to be play, has done a decent job too.

Debutant PS Mithran has done a decent job at addressing the topic of digital crime. He takes his time to establish his character's prominence in the film. The first half of the movie is filled with emotional values, the other half is packed with a racy screenplay. However, at times it does feel draggy.
Yuvan Shankar Raja scintillating backgroubnd scores are on point, while George C Williams's cinematography skills come to the fore and he has shot well.
In short, Irumbu Thirai is an all out action film.
