  •  Times Of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-7
Kallappadam works more as a heist movie, probably because we have only recently had Jigarthanda and KTVI talk about the film industry and they did it better. So, the first half, when we get to see the characters' struggles feels fairly routine and the film receives a jolt of energy only

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Anupama Subramanian Rating-5
