Critics Review


A Passable Whodunit Flick!

Gets the base plot right and Arun Vijay is a fitting cop, but the script falters with lack of detailing and the screenplay misses to heat up due to shortage of cleverly-written investigation track.(more)

Sinam is a decent emotional drama, but doesn't leave you fully satisfied

Though the film tries its best to hold the audience, it misses out when it comes to connecting us to the characters. Most importantly, the investigative sequences in the second half lack depth and aren't intriguing enough.(more)

Arun Vijay's film is vile and uninspiring

Sinam is the kind of movie that tires you to the extent you begin to not care to count its flaws. Disguised under the safe cloak of �good intentions�, the film is condescending to the audience�s intellect. It picks low-hanging fruits that appease the basic instincts of the mind and gives its all to exploit it and milk an emotional response. From the perspective of craft, it�s a film that doesn�t move an inch towards novelty, with the writing being ineffective. It�s unfortunate since Arun Vijay, just like in his previous release Tamil Rockerz, a web series, puts all his effort into bringing Pari to life. In fact, Arun looks chiselled and adheres to the standards set for action-hero cops in cinema.(more)

Arun Vijay film is a good investigative thriller with a controversial take on retribution

Sinam, with more sensitive writing, could�ve been a far more engaging thriller. Coming from director Kumaravelan, who made the highly impressive and moving Haridas � a film about autism a few years ago, it�s natural to expect more sensitivity in the writing.(more)
