Superstar Tries His Best, But The Film Trembles!
The story is extremely basic without much of a fluency. The happenings are so random and the plot-points comes out of nowhere, like a TV serial, new characters appear all of a sudden for every few minutes with different lame reasons. It is like we're left clueless without a clarity on the destiny, h...(more)

Rajinikanth's Diwali release is cinematic equivalent of the meeting that could've been an email
Subtlety has never been Siva�s strong suit. However, at the least, his films have a cohesive emotional fabric. It is a massive disappointment that Annaatthe lacks the basics. (more)

Where is the entertainment?
Siva's poor understanding of the universe of a 'good Rajinikanth film' shines through. He picks a terrific Jagapathi Babu as the antagonist only to waste him.

Rajinikanth's action drama belongs in a museum
Meena and Khushbu appear in a completely jarring comedy track, and it's sad to see the actors being reduced to this. Rajinikanth reels off punch dialogues faster than a jet plane but you can see that the man is tired. The affection you have for the actor makes you forgive the obvious stiffness in hi...(more)

Annaatthe is a watchable mass commercial film with high dose of sentiment and action.
Annaatthe is the kind of the film that we call as a template film. The first half consists of scenes that establish the bond between Kalaiyyan and his sister Thanga Meenakshi, while the second half is dominated with a series of action blocks. Director Siva's strength is in creating emotional scenes ...(more)
