Kaththi Review - movie is as sharp as its title

After Thuppakki, Vijay and AR Murugadoss have come together with sky high expectations from fans and critics.Kaththi is about Jeevanandam and Kathiresan, both enacted by Vijay in a dual role.

Kaththi Review - A very sharp commercial entertainer

Murugadoss has made use of Vijay's potential and delivered a powerful social drama with a few twists in both the halves. The editing is taut, and the decision not to include 'Paalam' song clogged few more kilometers to the racy screenplay. (more)

Murugadoss delivers a strong commercial movie with a nice social angle, in true Vijay style

To sum up, Kaththi is a grand production which rides on Vijay's dual roles, the social interest angle and some impactful scenes which are part of the mix. (more)

A well made entertainer with a powerful message.

Murgadoss's screenplay especially the long Vijay monologue in the climax where he hits out at corporates with an agenda is very good. (more)

Kaththi worth a watch.

Murugadoss has cleverly catered to Vijay's fans and at the same time maintained some rationale. Regardless of the excessive masala moments catering to Vijay's mass hero image, the film does convey an important social message. (more)

Beneath the flab, some solid masala moments

But the film gets better as it goes along, mostly because Murugadoss rediscovers, midway, the soundmasala instincts that had apparently abandoned him earlier. A fight sequence where Kathiresan uses a bunch of coins is a superb bit of imagination. (more)

A treat for all Vijay fans!

A R Murugadoss has made a film with a strong social message - the plight of famers in India today and roped in a mass hero like Vijay to essay the protagonist. Both have done a good job. (more)
