A political satire that is moderately funny

RJ Balaji is adequate and does a neat job. While I thought that roping in Nanjil Sampath was a gimmick, he is cleverly and aptly used.

Neatly written and executed political satire

Leon James' songs are already big hits and the young composer has done a good job in the re-recording too. The crisp runtime of 124 minutes is an added advantage. Overall, in this political season, LKG is a timely release and an eye opener for all the young voters.(more)

LKG is mostly a satisfying political satire and inarguably the best among the recent crop of political films.

RJ Balaji film is clever political satire

Leon James' music helps the film enormously. Ethanai Kaalam Thaan Emathuvaar is apt for the tone of the film and is not used liberally. In addition to that, the background score couldn't have been better for this political satire. The bottom line is LKG is fun but comes with an expiry date.(more)

LKG (Laughter and Knowledge Guaranteed) is an entertaining political drama, that has a thoughtful climax in RJ Balaji's style. Go for it.

LKG is an underdog movie that works quite well and should satisfy everyone, post the movie's smart promotions online that has built good expectation.(more)

Neither funny nor boring

The problem with LKG is that it can hardly be viewed as a film, but a culmination of video memes and trolls on the political developments in the State. The intent - to write a political satire - is appreciable, but not the writing.(more)
