Critic Reviews Kammatipaadam / Kammatti Paadam

  • Behindwoods | Review By -D Meera Chithirappaavai Rating-5/10
Madhu Neelakantan’s work behind the lens and Ajith Kumar’s edit have retained the essence and nativity of the locality well, making the overall experience a pleasant one. The difference in timeline is also well established by the cinematographer. One element that continuously pursues to impress us is the BGM. Progressive and classy route taken by the musicians K, John P. Varkey, Vinayakan has worked well. Kammattipaadam is a well packaged, realistic film with minute issues with the engagement factor.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Deepa Soman Rating-6/10
Dulquer seems to have done his best in all the varied avatars he appears in, and so have the rest of the actors, including the leading ladies Shaun Romy and Amalda Liz. In the second half, the film does get a bit dragging with the quest of the protagonist getting nowhere. Kammattipadam is for those who love to garner some thrill through the ways of mobster squads and their rip-roaring life stories.

  • Filmi Beat | Review By -Akhila Menon Rating-7/10
Dulquer Salmaan, who essays Krishnan, has improved immensely as an actor and has portrayed the transitions of his role effortlessly. Kammatipaadam may not satisfy the normal audiences who expect an action-packed gangster flick. Strongly recommended for the serious film lovers. Kammatipaadam is a well-crafted, realistic gangster flick!

  • Manorama | Review By -Arathi Kannan Rating-6/10
It also becomes predictable towards the end, where the uncertainty fizzles out after the rather long drawl, for we already have a good hunch of the culprits. The finale, however, gets the film sitting on the threshold of a commercial film to simply take the plunge.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Goutham VS Rating-8/10
The director has continued to use his anarchic concepts of visualisation, which include shaky shots, blurred frames and sometimes abrupt sequences. The realistic and daring approach of Rajiv Ravi deserves standing ovation at times when the paper tigers in this industry still fear to come up with something different from the old mould.

  • The Hindu | Review By -SR Praveen
Kammatipadam can be read in myriad ways – as a revenge story, as the history of evolution of a city, as a chronicle of the disintegrating relationships of a group of friends who involve in criminality for survival or even as an ode to those dispossessed in the march towards development.
