Recycled Jokes In A Familiar Terrain!
The film would have probably been much better had it involved more banter between the two lead stars ( the last few minutes are an example) rather than playing out like a hero vehicle and putting down the female counterpart. And when we have a film like Super Deluxe that attempts to tell us that bei...(more)

The film is full of ineffective one-liners, illogical scenes and exhausting dialogues and songs.
The biggest surprise is someone like Nayanthara, who picks films with utmost care, agreed to a project which has the hero putting her at her place in most of the scenes.(more)

Mr. Local misses out on entertainment despite an in-form Sivakarthikeyan
A major let down with the film is the casual sexism spread over. For instance, there is a poor joke involving Me Too that undermines the movement.

A Film So Politically Incorrect, It's Not Even Funny
Expecting political correctness from Rajesh is like expecting a happy ending (no pun intended) from Bala but can't we expect at least a few jokes to land? Shouldn't the jokes at least offend us in new ways? Guess that's too much to expect from another tiring iteration of the Taming Of The Shrew. (more)
