Critic Reviews Aandavan Kattalai

  • Times of India | Review By -M Suganth Rating-7/10
The film is somewhat leisurely paced, but that isn't much of an issue, as the scenes are engaging. The only underwhelming aspect here is that Manikandan doesn't show us Gandhi's admission of guilt with the theatre group's head, more so because his string of lies begins because he value's the man's trust.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-6/10
Director Manikandan, who gave us the lovely film called, Kaaka Muttai on the travails of two little boys angling for a pizza, takes us this time to a completely different theme in Aandavan Kattalai. Vijay Sethupathi -- in his usual subdued performance is a bit more evocatively expressive here as Gandhi.

  • Rediff | Review By -S Saraswathi Rating-7/10
Every scene keeps you hooked with its surprising simplicity and ordinary actors, who have lived their characters. The director once again delivers big time with a refreshing screenplay loaded with reality and fun, some great music, delightful characters and brilliant all-round performances. A total entertainer with a subtle message, Andavan Kattalai is not to be missed.

  • Filmibeat | Review By -Avinash Gopinath Rating-6/10
Though the movie is aimed at creating an awareness about a contemporary issue, this may suffer because of its pace, for it is a tad too slow. Manikandan knows how to deliver a movie with a sensible message intertwined with a bountiful of humor. Aandavan Kattalai is no different and this too, like Kaaka Muttai is an enjoyable ride.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Baradwaj Rangan
But you laugh anyway. Entertainment that actually is about something, which actually says something – it’s the elusive grail Tamil filmmakers keep chasing. Only Manigandan seems to have found it.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Anupama Subramanian Rating-7/10
Manikandan has touched upon all relevant issues like rude repercussions of resorting to shortcut methods to get passports, greedy mentality of house owners, Sri Lankan refugees plight etc without being preachy or melodramatic. He makes an impact through a fun filled screenplay. A film that’s not to be missed!

  • Behindwoods | Review By -BW Review Rating-6/10
Editing by Anucharan is apt and the transitions used, suit the mood of the film. Shanmugasundaram's visuals are colourful and very much supportive of the film. Overall, A light hearted entertaining film that talks about a socially relevant issue.

  • Studio Flicks | Review By -Richard Mahesh Rating-6/10
Overall, Aandavan Kattalai is a feel-good worth watchable film that you can surely enjoy with your friends and family. The film has as simple plot, but Manikandan throws up some lights on the existing issue in the contemporary society laced with humour and emotions.

  • Cinema Glitz | Review By -Sajid Rating-7/10
Manikandan, does it again and what we can call a hat-trick. A perfect blend of emotions and reality which balances the sanity of both. The reference of SL Tamil and refugees was a subtle touch and was beautifully handled with caution. Definitely worth a watch, don’t miss it in theatres.
