Some Fun But Just Remains Watchable!

ajinikanth is a passable comedy. It is reasonably funny but it ought to have been more consistently funny, given the fact that there was ample scope for the same.(more)

Family-friendly comedy entertainer

Though Ghajinikanth is a faithful remake of a hit film, the first half moves slowly and the climax fight turns out to be unintentionally funny and silly. Technically, Balamurali Balu's songs are hits and his background score is adequate. Ballu's colorful cinematography and GK Prasanna's cuts are the...(more)

The forgetful funnyman

Ghajinikanth goes along smoothly. But the portions in which it takes itself too seriously - there's a cop (Lijeesh) who is besotted with Vandana and that leads to an unnecessary action sequence in the end - bog it down big time. Director Santhosh Jayakumar, who gave us two sex comedies (Hara Hara Ma...(more)
