Jeeva - A Bold Knock

Suseenthiran continues his fine form. A notable aspect of this man is that he makes quality films within a reasonable time frame. Though it occupies only a small portion of the running time the crux of the film is about the politics being played by the selectors of the game. The director makes no bones about it and there is no mincing of words even in the dialogues(more)

Jeeva takes us through the faulty system that forces out the deserving, and is an engaging watch!

Nice entertaining film, and another feather on the director´┐Żs cap.

Suseenthiran smartly points out that true talent is often neglected. However the entire first half is devoted to romance and songs including an unwanted bar song. D Imman's music is top class and his BGM is terrific especially in second half.(more)

Jeeva lays bare the politics in cricket

The director has a knack for turning his stories around in the post-interval session, and he does it here too extremely well. He opens the film with a scene that features Vishnu narrating his story as a cricketer, which at that point seemed very cliched, but by the time the film reaches its climax you're pleasantly surprised.(more)

Jeeva Review

This is proper sports drama material and Suseenthiran pads up the film with the tropes that the genre needs. So, we get Jeeva's interest in the game as a kid his family life , his romance with Jenny, his new neighbour, his friendship with Ranjith..(more)
