Vijay Shines in this Passable Entertainer!

A light-hearted film that could have been related if it had been executed well, Thanks to Vijay and Thaman, despite many issues, the film stays as a fairly watchable entertainer largely due to them.(more)

Vijay's film is a potent commercial cocktail

If there are slip-ups in the form of a rather slight romantic track, and less-than-formidable villains, the film makes up for all of it through its leading star.

Predictable family drama that works only due to Vijay's presence

Packed With Vijay Magic!

While the media-shy Vijay Sir can easily charm his devoted fan base with Varisu featuring action, dance sequences and masterful punch dialogues customised to feed his star image, it isn't too hard to see the hypocrisy behind the humbling man who calls himself his own competitor even in real life. ...(more)

The Problem Isn't Vijay Being The Best Thing About This Film, Problem Is He's The Only Good Thing!

The major issue about Vijay�s family drama is it misses two important things: interesting family and impactful drama. Beast, despite all its flaws, was a superior project to this one.(more)
