Critics Review


This actioner ought to have been way more fun

I get the feel that the film would have worked much better had it been treated like one of those Hollywood actioners where it is only about the stunts and adventure. But there is probably a business need to cater to everyone and Arunkumar brings in an emotional angle but this angle isn't compelling enough on screen. The villain after all that build up doesn't really pose a threat and the hero hardly stretches himself to defeat him. (more)

Sindhubaadh isn't as satisfying as Arun Kumar's previous films, but it isn't entirely a letdown either.

Vijay Sethupathi's portrayal of Thiru as a hero with vulnerabilities also infuses some tension into these portions. These things ensure that even if Sindhubaadh isn't as satisfying as Arun Kumar's previous films, Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi, it isn't entirely a letdown either.(more)

Vijay Sethupathi gives his heart and soul to the film

Overall, had the second half of Sindhubaadh entertained the audience like it did in the first half, we would have got another Sethupathi. But now, the film ends up as a mixed bag.(more)

A tale of two halves

Sindhubaadh is a one time watch for if you want to catch a normal Vijay Sethupathi, fresh off of his Super Deluxe exploits, on the screen. But it is not a film that will go into your best of Sethupathi collection.(more)

Vijay Sethupathi's Film has a Bizarre, Unbelievable Script

A mindless movie like Sindhubaadh can mar the beautiful memory of some of his earlier works that certainly elicited a wow from critics and others.(more)

Vijay Sethupathi and Anjali's thriller loses the plot to too many sub-plots

Director SU Arun Kumar's Sidhubaadh could have been a satisfying thriller, but he puts in too many ideas in the film. To a point where it becomes too much to take in.(more)

This Vijay Sethupathi starrer is an action flick with no thrills

Director Arun Kumar, who really impressed with his previous films, Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi, struggles to give us a film that�s neither wholesomely action-packed nor funny enough to oversee its shortcomings. If not for the lead characters and their performances, Sindhubaadh would've been unimaginably boring.(more)

Vijay Sethupathi Goes Into Action Mode With Disappointing Results

There's no spatial continuity, no sense of a sequence building gradually. Suddenly, we are in a bunch of alleys. Suddenly, we are in the hills(more)



Some opening warmth gets waylaid in this half-hearted thriller

These characters, I dare say, would have been better left in their home, tackling problems from within the region. Sindhubaadh, whose characters travel to countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia, is unfortunately all over the place.(more)
