Kumki is worth watching for the diligent work

Some of the scenes are over-exaggerated and one might feel that the story meanders at times,especially in the second half.(more)

The climax is predictable

Sukumar's cinematography is excellent. Beautiful locations and amazing camera work are also the highlights of Kumki. (more)

It is a beautifully shot movie with good performances and an emotional core

Imman is the other hero of Kumki with all his numbers competing for top honors. Soi, Sollitaley, Ayyayo Anandhame and Nee Yeppo Pulla are strong contenders for being the song of the year. His menacing use of wind instruments in his re-recording is apt for the huge elephants on screen. (more)

A neat entertainer

Among the most breath-taking scenes in Kumki are the aerial shots from top of a waterfall and the wild elephant attacking the villagers in the opening scene, which sends a chill down your spine.(more)

Neat attempt in Nature's company

Sukumar's lens takes you through the dense forest, serenading waterfalls and simple hamlet with such aesthetics that you sit mesmerised by Nature's beauty. But the CG department could have worked harder at certain points to make matters more realistic. (more)

This Tamil film is visually very evocative.

The locations are out of this world and I don't remember seeing anything as visually engrossing in the recent past. Be it the mountains in the background or the greenery spread across the village or the dense forests, everything in the film won't go unnoticed.(more)

Kumki is brilliant

Director Prabhu Solomon love affair with hills and forests might explain the inexplicable magic that permeates every scene of his movies. (more)

The movie is surely worth a watch for its cinematography and different backdrop.

It would have been a much better had Prabhu concentrated more on the story. The story on Kumki elephant has the potential to be a different one but the director concentrates more on the love affair.(more)
