Karthi and Lokesh Kanagaraj manage to create magic with this intriguing action-drama. A must watch!
Releasing on the Diwali weekend, the film proves that you don't always need a star driven commercial potboiler to satisfy the fans. Kaithi's interval block is one of the best in the recent times and it received so much applause. Lokesh Kanagaraj shows his mastery over the craft and is ably supported...(more)

A pure genre film minus the frills
If there is a fault, it is that the film feels overlong for its genre, with a couple of action blocks getting over-indulgent. But when it is action that we have signed up for, we cannot complain much about that.(more)

A terrific Karthi goes all guns blazing
You could say Kaithi is one of those aesthetically-shot 'mass' movies (the cinematography is by Sathyan Sooryan, a human-pyramid like shot reminded me of Jallikattu), for not a single frame is wasted and has tonnes of camera movements. It is the kind of movie you would get when a star blindly trusts...(more)

Karthi starrer is a relentless action drama that has its heart in the right place
The film has some really interesting characters and each one�s presence is well justified. George Maryan, for instance, plays a constable who really owns his scenes and makes a solid impact.

Kaithi is a brilliantly made movie with Lokesh Kanagaraj and Karthi shining bright!
The only areas that stand out as a bit odd are the cinematic twist to the action sequences, which seem to have been added to bring in the commercial factor.

Kaithi - From the first frame to the last frame, a classy and realistic action thriller. Karthi rocks in a different character with shades of Paruthiveeran thrown into the mix. There are few dull portions and amateurish dialogues but overall the screenplay is so realistic. Mostly enjoyable. (more)
