A Template Film That Stays Afloat!
A template film that remains afloat largely due to Karthi and to a certain extent, Prakash Raj. Template is never the problem. It means that you get dance, romance, comedy, action and emotions. It is a problem when these remain only as a part of a checklist and not a well thought out mix that is mea...(more)

Actors make this generic rural drama a passable affair
The portions that work are mainly due to the actors, who infuse one-dimensionally written characters with flesh and blood. Like Prakash Raj, who makes us see past Muniyandi's negative qualities and turns him into someone who could be given a chance at redemption, especially in the final portions. Ra...(more)

Karthi's predictable drama creates a festival-like experience
Walking into a Muthaiya film always feels like being invited to a family wedding which is usually full of people. Here�s a filmmaker, who still strives to tell stories about joint families that are still a big deal in villages. In 2022, joint family is a concept that�s alien to most of us but trust ...(more)

A GENERIC RURAL-TEMPLATE FILM
. The problem with Viruman is that so little effort has been made to infuse the elements of this template with some freshness. The fights look the same. The song staging looks the same. Prakash Raj's character is the same he has played a thousand times earlier. The two biggest contributors are the c...(more)

Karthi's film is passable
One can go on and on about the ingrained sexism and the romanticisation of familial values that teems in Viruman. Also, we wonder when Tamil directors � from Muthaiya to Gautam Vasudev Menon � will forgo the idea of making the wives and girlfriends as stand-ins for the mothers of our heroes. In Viru...(more)

Karthi and Prakash Raj are endearing in this blaring rural drama that firmly sticks to its traditions
One of the things that gets going in Viruman is the chemistry between Karthi and Prakash Raj. It is more natural than the one Karthi shares with Aditi who, at best, could pass off as his sibling. These two actors � Karthi and Raj � keep you hooked on to the proceedings, even when it hits a series of...(more)

Karthi's flavourless film is full of stale ideas
It is the actors who try their best to elevate the drowning script of Viruman. Karthi is seen displaying his Paruthiveeran-like charm in Viruman, which is a treat to watch. And Prakash Raj is exceptional as a misogynistic father. You literally hate his character and that's where he succeeds. Viruman...(more)

The performances led by Karthi, Yuvan's music, and the rooted nature make Viruman a watchable family drama.
Viruman is a Muthaiah film that's strictly in Muthaiah's safe zone and doesn't want to venture into untested waters. Audiences who generally like Muthaiah's style of filmmaking will love this, especially due to the technical quality, while for other audiences this is a strict one time watch. Can be ...(more)
