A yawn-inducing pamphlet film

At 127 minutes, Adutha Saattai struggles to keep us hooked. Even Samuthirakani, who is supposed to be its saving grace, doesn't rise above the mediocre plot.(more)

Preachy and old-fashioned

Adutha Saattai is yet another preachy film from Samuthirakani and director Anbazhagan.(more)

Filled with preachy dialogues and repetitive sequences in the name of student empowerment and social change.

A scene towards the end which showcases the ugly side of caste politics is perhaps the only novel idea. The contemporary issues students face today have been discussed throughout the film, but it takes enormous patience to sit through.(more)

Though contemporary issues of students are addressed, the narrative is uninspiring. The student parliament idea and the campus interviews for arts and science colleges are interesting bits. Clocking at more than 125 minutes, the length could have used a bit of trimming.(more)
