Even though the show is gripping until the end, there was absolutely no need to have 12 episodes. You will get to know after watching this. Things could have been wrapped up in just eight or nine episodes. Also, the big problem here is that the suspense is revealed very early and once the suspense is known, things get slow in a few scenes. The love story of Amith Sadh is dragged for no reason. The series could have been edited a bit better to make it even tauter.
