The stereotyped premise and middling narration in second hour makes 'Gorilla' a mediocre fare

Yes, the film excels with the hilarious aspects during the initial moments and it does extend till the end of first hour. Don Sandy doesn't strain writing some exceptionally skilled acts of robbery, but makes a simple execution through dummy guns, bombs (with a small twist) and masks. However, the ...(more)

Entertains But Fails To Push Boundaries Ahead!

Gorilla has good moments to offer but not without frequent hiccups. The film is entertaining but fails to push the boundaries further ahead. The social angle that the film has to say is pretty good and the team needs to be applauded for that.(more)

Jiiva's film is an utterly pointless and tedious watch

Director Don Sandy's Gorilla is a lazily made film that takes the audience for granted. Do not expect any logic or quality comedy from Jiiva in his latest release.(more)

Gorilla attempts at portraying a serious issue, but fails due to an incoherent screenplay

The lack of interesting and engaging factor in the storytelling is evident when we see the film cashing too much on adult comedy and the rehash of clich�s thrown at us throughout the narrative. Even in terms of form, the film is amateurishly staged, particularly during the bank robbery sequences, wh...(more)

Kong the chimpanzee is fun to watch in Jiiva's illogical, ordinary heist film

The director forgets logic in favour of downright silly scenes replete with body shaming to raise the laughter quotient as top comedian Yogi Babu enters the scene. In a gag scene, the police asks Yogi Babu, who is not wearing a mask, to remove his mask as they think he is a gorilla. There are ample ...(more)

Jiiva's film is a silly heist comedy that's barely entertaining

Here's another Tamil film that has absolutely no scope for the heroine yet Shalini Pandey has been cast to play a character that appears in a few scenes and a song. Even Jiiva, who plays the hero, has very little to contribute but for few scenes where he's decent. Gorilla is mildly amusing at places...(more)

It would be easy to dismiss Gorilla as a silly, far-fetched film, but the fact is that the film works.

As for the chimp, it only adds to the nuttiness (it even has a habit of hitting people in the nuts). Sure the film would have worked even without this character, which mainly is used for reaction shots, but right now, it's inclusion only adds to the film�s anything goes approach.(more)

A Painfully Messy Heist Film Which Succeeds In Robbing Our Patience

Everything is messy, everything is shoddy and there's one too many gags involving the chimp punching or kicking or slapping a man's groin. Which is when you realise that the chimp itself is just an added accessory, a novelty that adds nothing to the film. There's something seriously amiss with a fil...(more)
