Komban - Power of M(uscle)asala

The film is just disguised as a bonding between the hero and his father in law. It is the routine bloodshed drama where the hero safeguards his family. Towards the end of the first half there is this portion which deals with the uneasy relationship between Karthi and Rajkiran. But this thread only w...(more)

Komban is a Raging Bull

Director Muthaiah has done a neat job on the screenplay, which is racy in most parts and direction is adept. Velraj's lens capture the rural essence in every frame. The bonding between the father in law and the son in law is very effective because Karthi and Rajkiran give such realistic performanc...(more)

For people who have a liking towards high voltage rural action, drama and rage

Director Muthiah returns with one more rural flick that has its fulcrum around the love-hate relationship between an old man, Muthiah (Raj Kiran) and his hot blooded son-in-law, Komban (Karthi).

Same old Karthi in a show of sickle

In this endless roll of flashing knives and gritting teeth, the film tries in vain to lighten the mood with a touch of romance (between Komban and Lakshmi) and a few songs.

So dull that's the real controversy

M. Muthaiah's Komban have no real use for their rural settings, which end up as mere scenery. Transpose these narratives to the city and there'd be no difference except, we wouldn't see so much underwear. The goons who end up flying into orbit, courtesy the hero punches, do so with their legs splay...(more)

An Emotional Family Drama Fabricated Effectively!

Engaging screenplay and fascinating narration by M. Muthaiah, smart bit of editing by Praveen KL and brilliant camerawork by Velraj makes Komban technically strong. Though the plot of the movie is not new to Tamil Cinema, the way it is put across with right mix of comedy, action, values of relations...(more)

Komban is a tedious watch

The film moves briskly. Every action sequence is dramatic, with loud, pulsating music and the furious indestructible Komban on a wild rampage. (more)
