Suriya delivers his charismatic Best as SPG agent

The entire movie is like an extended climax. Screenplay doesn't take a breather and will keep you glued with no time to think between scenes. Kaappaan will give the much needed blockbuster for Suriya. Solid Entertainer. (more)

Kaappan is a watchable commercial drama and action treat to Suriya fans, that has some good engaging moments.

Technically, Kaappaan's action sequences are top-notch and MS Prabhu's cinematography aids to the making of those sequences. Suriya shoulders the whole film and appears convincing throughout, while Mohanlal gives a nice elderly presence through his character. Kaappaan had some really good ideas, and...(more)

Suriya delivers his charismatic Best as SPG agent

There is a certain pulpy quality to KV Anand's films and even those aspects, like the angle involving bio warfare conducted through locusts, feel underwhelming. By the time the film reaches its ineffective climax, we begin to wish for Vijayakant and Arjun to come and rescue us.(more)

Ambitious but exhausting!

Usually Anand's films stand out in the technical department but here everything is strictly average including music, cinematography, writing and editing.

A colossal misfire for Suriya

The problem with Kaappaan is, Anand constructs scenes based on real-life incidents without stitching them together. There is no correlation between the previous and the corresponding scene, and it comes across like news tickers. My favourite portion in the movie involves Abishek (Arya), who plays Va...(more)

Suriya, Mohanlal are charismatic in this formulaic action drama

The action scenes have also been well picturised, though the special effects could have been better. One of the big let downs is that enough research and detailing have not gone into the script (on the working of the PMO) and makes a mockery of the way SPG functions. And a 'prime minister' coming in...(more)

Suriya-starrer is ambitious in scale but flat in execution

Kaappaan has very little to cheer for and even these moments aren�t great by KV Anand standards. The much hyped action sequences also don't really leave you in awe and make up for a disappointing and dull narrative. If only Anand concentrated on making a full-blown action film, Kaappaan would�ve mad...(more)

A nightmarish film that no star can save

KV Anand fills Kaappaaan with props, in his never-ending endeavour to create that elusive surreal ambience. But the film has artificiality written all over.(more)
