A Roaring Whimper

There is a certain period in the film that extends on either side of the interval which is very good and shows what Chimbudevan is capable of. The dwarfs, the puzzle like clues to reach the destination and some very good comedy in this stretch is the best that Puli has to offer. The portions before ...(more)

A crisper script and a lighter directorial hand is what are missing here. Alas, it's a fantasy film without any of the fun and excitement that ought to go with it. (more)

Puli is a lavishly made mainstream fantasy entertainer with good visual effects which should be encouraged

The film moves along at a pretty leisurely pace, and one can't go in expecting a racy ride from start to finish. The ending could have been better, as it is too frenetic. Weighing all the positives and negatives, Puli is ultimately an effort which needs to be positively considered. (more)

Vijay's film is a visual treat, but the screenplay is disappointing

While the genre of Puli many be new to Tamil cinema, the screenplay by director Chimbu Devenis a big let-down. The story is not something new and it moves at such a slow pace that it gets tiring to watch in places. We have seen Vijay in similar roles earlier, except that it wasn't in the fantasy gen...(more)

Vijay's fantasy drama is a fantastic flop

Production values are uneven, and some of the mythical sequences look pretty much amateurish. And, in the end, we wonder what the plot was about.

Puli is a fantasy but its failing is that it is told in an amateur fashion.

The film works as a visual extravaganza, but it fails to entertain. Even Vijay fans may find it hard to lap up his snazzy song-routine. Sridevi's arched eyebrows are more expressive than the rest of her. Hansika and Shruti only wiggle their backsides and shake their bellies. Aah, even that's disappo...(more)

Manisha R

I came across a new concept called Movie Analysis Services, sounds very interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agSeHLamNxY It seems the blockbuster movie Thani Oruvan used Movie Analysis Services'. Does anyone know that this service is used in this movie? (more)


Gowtham Viswanath

Firstly, I didn't want to rate this movie. After a Sci-fi try of Indru Netru Naalai, Puli accords with the Fantasy Genre. Puli utterly fails than Indru Netru Naalai and joins with the like of Irandaam Ulagam (But the Idea was a remake). Everything was a disaster and couldn't even be termed as amate... (more)

Very disappointing to say the least.Watched first day first show..had such high hopes for this film...All came crashing down.The story was ok but screenplay was very average.1.75/5.Even the big revelation about Vijay ' s character can be easily guessed.Nothing special about this Puli at all!!
