Netrikann is a technically sound thriller, with Nayanthara stamping her class throughout!
Instead of calling Netrikann a crime thriller, it would suffice to call the film a mass-crime thriller, as the Lady Superstar is in fine form as CBI Officer Durga and has her own mass moments which she owns like a boss. She's put in so much effort for the action sequences and it has translated well ...(more)

A cat and mouse game between a fiesty heroine and a sadistic villain
It is hard to not talk about Mysskin's Psycho when discussing Netrikann. That film, too, dealt with a visually challenged protagonist who was after a psycho killer. But while Mysskin's film was a more complex exploration of crime and punishment, Milind Rau is content with giving us a genre thriller ...(more)

A mostly faithful remake of a blind woman's battle with evil
A flabby remake of a lean, tense thriller, Netrikann works best when it regurgitates its source material. If you ignore the background songs totally unnecessary in a plot driven by surprise and suspense and a redundant back story to the villain that humanises him, the movie does what it is meant to...(more)

Nayanthara is superb in a thriller that loses steam halfway
Despite the bland background story of Durga as an orphan, Nayanthara carries the film on her shoulders.

The stumbles (literal and metaphorical) give us...(more)

On two to three occasions, Nayanthara�s character spouts rousing sermons about how women should behave and fear is their worst enemy. Though the intention is right, it didn�t create a positive im...(more)

A middling thriller that packs in oodles of sentiment
The lengthy chase sequences bog down the film considerably and it's also a tad surprising that the makers have conveniently shot them at places where there's not a single soul in sight. While Nayanthara gets a lot of things right as Durga - watch out for her intensity when she breaks down for the lo...(more)

Film belongs to Nayanthara and her screen presence
The film is largely engaging mainly due to the superb characterization of Nayanthara and her powerful performance. Be it subtle humor, emotionally demanding scenes, action, and mass sequences, Nayanthara hits everything out of the park with her elegant and arresting screen presence. (more)

Nayanthara Somewhat Salvages a Mishmash of a Thriller
Netrikann rides on Nayanthara, whose role as a blind woman could not have been a cakewalk. Her compelling performance in a movie that is way too long at 140-odd minutes somewhat manages to salvage a rather weak script, which like its protagonist, often stumbles along the way. (more)
