The film opens in Bangkok where Aadhi (Jayam Ravi) is a rich and smart suave smuggler whose intention is to make money by doing all nefarious activities. He bumps into Karishma (Neetu Chandra) a girl in distress, and finally falls in love with her. The naive girl using her charms brings him to Mumbai and then we know that she is Rani Sampada lover of Mumbai's dreaded don, who is on a mission. In Mumbai, Aadhi is chased by police, politicians and a big illegal mining mafia as they think he is Bhagavan (Jayam Ravi) the effeminate bad guy. How Aadhi takes on them forms the rest of the story.
Traces of Brilliance lost in Bloodbath
Aadhi Bhagavan is possibly a golden opportunity lost. The film has some genuine surprises and a smarter packaging could have done wonders. It is certainly not up to the level of Ameer's earlier films. Watch it for Jayam Ravi's sheer hard work.

Aadhi Bhagavan should not be missed!
The strength of the story is undoubtedly the curiosity of twists and turns in story in Aadhi Bhagavan. The director has narrated a brilliant story without much errors. Though there are mistakes at many places, it did not affect the film to a large extent. » more

Ameer has completely lost his way in an attempt to make a commercial entertainer.
Ravi looks the part of a sophisticated gangster, suits and all, but has limited scope for performance, with the director confused about what he wants him to do. Neetu Chandra comes out slightly better as her character has various shades. Sudha Chandran, Saiju Kurup and Babu Antony have glorified gue... » more

Aadhi Bhagavan is not great cinema but it's got many moments that will surprise you.
On the downside, Aadhi Bhagavan is unapologetically long, tiring and predictable in the first half and some serious trimming will help. The songs of Yuvan are nothing to write about but background score make up for it. There are couple of loose ends, which we didn't expect from a seasoned director like Ameer. » more
