Excuse The Lack Of Finesse And Sathru Is Not A Bad Watch!

Sathru has a strong cat and mouse game at its crux and this sees it through despite its issues.(more)

Sathru Movie Review

The story is quite predictable except for the long-winding and sometimes tedious scenes in the second half. Since the Koothu team acts as narrators, there is no suspense, the audience has to only think about in what way the cop and his friends on one side, and the villain and his accomplice on the o...(more)

A cop story well done

There are many pleasant surprises in Shatru - the pacing is apt, the action choreography is well done and the background music keeps you hooked to the on-screen proceedings. Director Naveen Nanjundan gets all these in place, besides putting together a cast that delivers with solid performances. Kath...(more)



Rough Around The Edges, But A Thrilling Cat-And-Mouse Game

An engaging Cop vs gangster thriller

Naveen Nanjundan an erstwhile associate of Radha Mohan has tried to portray the ruthlessness and the bonds on both the good and the bad side and with the given budget has shown some promise.(more)

Kathir makes an impressive cop in Naveen Nanjundan's predictable thriller

Kathir is quite impressive as a cop, but it is Laguparan as the menacing gang leader who steals the show. The rest of the star cast have hardly anything to do. Sathru works to a large extent as Naveen Nanjuundan is able to tell a police story without going overboard. His hero is far more credible th...(more)
