Bloodbath that only leaves you numb!
You expect Devarattam to be predictable and replete with cliches. But what hurts it is the absence of an emotional connect. The message of Devarattam is that women are precious and men should protect them. Wondering who will protect us from the regressive ideas that these films propagate. (more)

a violent film where the violence serves no purpose
Devarattam is yet another Tamil film that uses rape/sexual assault as a ploy to take the story forward. The film comes at a time when the disturbing Pollachi incident is still fresh in our minds. Brutality can be shown in two ways -- by mere representation and glorifying it. The scenes involving a r...(more)

This Muthiah-Gautham Karthik Collaboration Is A Total Underwhelmer
This kind of action-drama cannot. You wish they had worked on the emotions, instead. And the casting. And the cinematography. And the sound design. And the editing. And the production design. And the stunts. And the songs. And the choreography. And the�(more)
