I Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-7
Lingesan (Vikram) is a bodybuilder from a small town in Tamil Nadu, who dreams of winning the Mr India title for bodybuilding. Besides dumbbells, his only other love is supermodel Diya (Amy Jackson). Life throws up a pleasant surprise to our sweet little simpleton. After winning

  •  Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-7
Director Shankar’s phenomenal success record is legendary.  He is one of those rare directors, who turns everything he touches into gold. It has been three years since his last film, and expectations have hit the roof for his latest venture -- the mega-budget romantic thriller, titled I.

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Suresh Kavirayani Rating-5
Shankar’s much awaited ‘I’ has finally released. With Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead and A.R. Rahman’s music, the film, which took nearly two years to finish, had been eagerly anticipated. Lingesh (Vikram) is an aspiring bodybuilder from Sanath Nagar and wants to participate in Mr India.

  •  Bangalore Mirror | Review By -RS Prakash Rating-6
First things first. Shankar's I, which took over two years to be made, is indeed a milestone in Vikram's career as he has evidently put his heart and soul, needless to mention, his physique as well, giving the flick a big fillip. Given his age and stature, it is an undeniable fact that

  •  Malayala Manorama | Review By -Arathi Kannan Rating-6
'I' starts on a promising note, with the hunchback Vikram fleeting across the first frame displacing the good looking version of Vikram from the initial pitching. Another aspect that was set in motion was the non-linear narrative. And seemingly, director Shankar wanted to make

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-5
There are many films from the South which get dubbed in Hindi. While some films unfailingly hit the target, there are many others which simply go down the drain... only to find itself a place in non-prime time slots of TV channels later. This week's release I is 'made-in-Tamil-dubbed

  •  Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Rahul Desai Rating-6
How does one find the heart to criticise a fairytale, or an ambitious extravaganza that attempts to redefine the contemporary fairytale? Memories of my childhood are entrenched somewhere between cosy winter viewings of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and Beauty And The Beast.

  •  Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7
Director Shankar's formula is simple. He keeps you so spellbound with visuals and joy and craziness that you meekly accept the lack of logic in several places and yes, a bit of tackiness too. Lingesan aka Lee (Vikram in a super form) is a bodybuilder, who is working hard to achieve

  •  India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-6
Shankar's much awaited dream project I has finally hit the theatres. The filmmaker had a vision and clearly he left no stone unturned while executing it. From casting Vikram and Amy Jackson in the lead to roping in AR Rahman for the music and PC Sreeram to add the magic touch

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5
Lingesan (Vikram) is a passionate body-builder who dreams only of two things, one of becoming the Mr. India and second the famed ad-diva Diya (Amy Jackson) who is in every possible commercial and on his wall too. He is so smitten by her that the otherwise focused Lingesan

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-4
The only high point of Shankar's I (in Tamil) is Vikram's enthralling performance, first as a rustic body builder and later as a disfigured hunchback. As the guy from the gutters who speaks slum Tamil and whose passion is confined to exhibiting his ripping muscles

  •  Sify | Review By -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
Perhaps the film made sense inside director Shankar's head. But what we see on screen is nothing short of an unintended catastrophe! We see Lee (Vikram) unabashedly showing off his body in a competition, where he is given the Mr. Tamil Nadu title. He is obsessed with a model

  •  Now Running | Review By -Piyush Chopra Rating-3
Director Shankar came out with Enthiran a.k.a. Robot in 2010, starring Rajinikanth a.k.a. Superstar a.k.a. God. The film was India's first ultra-high budget, special effects-heavy sci-fi adventure. Even if you didn't belong to the legions of Superstar's fans and weren't so inclined

  •  Bollywood Life | Review By -Subramanian Harikumar Rating-7
I recounts the age old saga of love and revenge, keeping in mind the taste of mass audiences. The story revolves around body builder Lingesan, whose goal in life is to become Mr Tamil Nadu. Apart from training restlessly in gym, Lingesan’s only other job is to fantasise about

  •  Chitramala | Review By -Kumar G Rating-7
On an average, this flick turned out to be a tough competition to the Telugu films for this Pongal season. With Vikram’s avatars, Amy Jackson’s beauty and Shankar’s marvelous directional skills, “I” is racing ahead with good visuals. This venture can be considered as an above average

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Raisa Nasreen Rating-7
The film’s promotional poster piqued our curiosity by giving us few details about the title. I – is love, I – is beast and I – is revenge. But what actually is ‘I‘? I – is a stupendously engrossing, visually fantastic film with Vikram’s exuberant performance serving as the film’s backbone!

  •  Behind Woods | Review By -BW Review Board Rating-6
The biggest movie in recent times, Shankar's I is finally here. And, it is yet another proof of the capability of the director for whom even big or bigger won't cut it. His latest movie is his biggest, as of now (with no doubt that this can be said of his next movie as well - such is his vision and ingenuity).

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-5
After postponing the movie several times, Vikram's I  has finally made it to the silver screen. Touted to be a technically brilliant movie, I  was also one of the most expected Tamil film in recent times. So what has director Shankar come up with after Vijay's Nanban that was released

  •  The Hindu | Review By -Ranjani Rajendra
Say Shankar and Vikram in the same breath and the only thing that comes to mind is the brilliance that was Anniyan (Aparichitudu in Telugu). The film cemented the actor’s place in the big league and garnered much critical acclaim. So when the duo came back together for I

  •  The Hindu | Review By -Baradwaj Rangan
Is there another filmmaker as fascinated by the double role as Shankar? (Even the frivolous Jeans is riveted by the sight of twins.) Where others employ this trope as merely a means to magnify the hero — see two stars for the price of one! — or maybe to flesh out the separated-at-birth

  •  Piping Hot Views | Review By -PHV Team
In more than half a decade of Tamil movie industry it has always been observed that the weight of expectations vested on a movie is directly proportional to the disenchantment of the average movie-watching public. But 'I' breaks this trend majestically. ‘I’ is definitely not the best script among

  •  AP Herald | Rating-4
By now one is certain about the common traits to expect in a Shankar movie. A world of his own, presented in a grand way with a high degree of visual effects and natural panache for bringing out high degree of emotions even in intricately choreographed song picturizations. However

  •  123 Telugu | Rating-5
On the whole, I is surely Shankar’s weakest film till date. Excessive length and lack of emotional connect are basic drawbacks. But keeping the festival season in mind, and Shankar’s grand visuals added with Vikram’s mind blowing performance, this film can be given a shot.

  •  Indiaglitz | Rating-6
The last time Shankar embraced romance would have been “Kadhalan”, is that right? Well, strike that! As none of his movies were short of romance, as the “Love” rather played an important aspect in almost all of his movies. With “I”, we see Shankar experimenting by rather stepping
