Critics Review

3.25

A revenge thriller that scores high on atmospherics!!!

A tight and competent revenge thriller that is on the mark for the most part. Special mention about the grim mood and the consistent eerie atmosphere that we are rarely exposed to in Tamil cinema.(more)

If the film finally feels a little underwhelming, it is only because the initial portions are terrific

We get to experience the crime that set the protagonist on his vengeful path the same way he experienced it, and this makes the horror all the more chilling. If only had the director gone with this approach in the latter scenes, instead of turning the climax into yet another bash-them-up, Asuravadha...(more)

Gripping revenge thriller worth a watch

The blood and gore could have been toned down a bit. But such a treatment is required for a serious film like this. And the flashback is also a bit predictable. Nevertheless, a gripping revenge thriller that's worth a watch especially if you are a fan of raw action.(more)

asikumar is riveting as a silent vigilante in this thrilling revenge saga

Asuravadham only sags a bit towards the end, when the back story is revealed, and at the climax when the hero literally takes on an army of goons. A predictable ending for an otherwise unpredictable thriller.(more)

Asuravadham is technically sound, a raw and rustic screenplay, but a not-so-exciting story

Director Maruthupandian garners attention for his interesting usage of the film language. With a more interesting plot and a perfect execution, Asuravadham could have gone down as one of the notable emotional action thrillers in Tamil cinema.(more)

A solid vendetta thriller, starring M Sasikumar, that reimagines a typical story with treatment and craft

At the end of this narration, again, the director pulls off a nifty trick. That's the thing with a hard-working filmmaker - even the cliches seem less cliched.(more)

An intelligent revenge thriller

Yes, there is blood shed but the plot and screenplay completely justifies it. We have seen SR Kathir's camera travel along with the characters in Subramaniapuram, he has once again repeated the magic in Asuravadham. Kathir's long shot in the climax is a masterclass stuff, as his camera effortle...(more)
