Test of patience
So Suraaj with his half baked script has packaged the film with a cliched hero introduction, crude comedy scenes, double entendre, corny dialogues, mass songs, caricature villains in black and white Sumos chasing the hero who takes them single-handedly and finally a contrived climax. » more

For old formulaic mass masala fans.
Alex Pandian may work for people who patronize formulaic films with few songs, action sequences and the routine content. Alex Pandian does not offer much but for the action sequences which are plenty and are shot quite well. » more

Alex Pandian is a typical masala film, which would work better in the Telugu market than among Tamil film goers.
Karthi is once again energetic and has given his best. Santhanam is hilarious at parts and irritating at times due to some poorly written scenes. » more

This Tamil film is entertaining but offers nothing new.
Overall, the film appears to be a collection of chase and stunt sequences, which deliver one message - no one, can beat the hero. Santhanam, like in many other movies he is truly the savior of 'Alex Pandian' » more

Clich�s of the commercial
AP�s screenplay plays truant � it is as though Suraaj wakes up suddenly to the fact that too much time has gone by without romantic song sequences and has inserted them in a hurry one after the other. The heroine trying to escape in a motorboat in vain, is much like the Satyaraj-Sivaji Ganesan interaction in Jallikkattu, and hence has no fizz. » more
