An Important Note Written On A Crushed Paper

Laabam brings many small portions of information and episodes that lack coherence. The disjoint flow of the film makes Laabam a not-so-engaging watch and challenges the viewer�s attempt to connect with the film. Overall, Laabam is a bag with loads of good intent but forgets to pack the knack to use ...(more)

A preachy political drama

As usual, Vijay Sethupathi has delivered an effortless performance while Shruti Hassan only comes in a few scenes.
