The film stands one step higher than our regular horror films

The first half is chilling and the big relief is that there are no duets or silly comedy.

A formulaic mass masala action film with a strong social message

'Mersal' belongs to Vijay and he totally steals the show with his comic timing, mass dialogue delivery, powerful screen presence and racy moves.

Gautham Karthik is comfortable as the happy go lucky guy, Nikki Galrani looks pretty and delivers what is required for her character

It can be enjoyed if you opt for some fun with a bunch of young friends. But if you look out for quality comedy, you might be disappointed

Neither frightens you nor evokes any laughter

Horror comedies are aimed to provide a wholesome entertainment with scary elements blend with slapstick humor to bring the roof down. But as they say, comedy is a serious business and if the director is not sure of what he s doing, things can always go wrong.

It isn’t just an action movie set against the backdrop of fire fighters but is also about friendship between five young men

First half is a total downer with unnecessary songs, a lifeless romance and very minimal gags

It’s up to Vishnu Vishal to breathe life into this lazy film…which he does. Overall, 'Kathanayagan' is a plain and simple bore.

A jolly time pass entertainer with a relevant message, which will definitely create an impact

RJ Balaji steals the show with his one liners and long drawn dialogues on engineering students and their plight.

This film gets tiring very quickly

It takes superhuman strength to stop yourself from nodding off to sleep. This film gets tiring very quickly.

A wafer-thin storyline filled with crass comic sequence which relies on a bunch of comedians for the screenplay proceedings

The much hyped funny one-liners of Soori didn’t work and it would have been great if Ezhil used Yogi Babu more as his portions comparatively worked better. The rest of the comedians including Mansoor Ali Khan, Chams and Madhumitha fail to attract us.
