Critics Review


Ambitious on paper but middling in execution

Padavettu offers an insightful commentary on sustainable development and calls out political forces that come up with devious schemes to mislead the uninformed. The filmmaker, however, falters in handling the tonal shift when the story metamorphoses from a personal story of one man's coming-of-age to a rather expansive exploration of land politics that he falters. The shift is, indeed, jarring.(more)

Padavettu Movie Review :

The movie became lengthy and too much in describing the character of Ravi. The editing could have been crisper and the movie would have soared. You�ll love the movie if you love political activism, and then who doesn't? A good timepass for the weekend.(more)
