Critics Review


Loud And Over The Top But The Pacy Narration Helps!

Forget finesse in presentation and performances. In fact, the amateur VFX is right on your face, the entire time. Pichaikkaran 2 is a loud and over the top film that tries to play to the gallery. The point is that you can play to the gallery with finesse as well. But given that Pichaikkaran 2 isn�t aspiring for that, it probably comes close to what it intended to.(more)

Pichaikkaran 2 is not rich enough, but can't be ignored right away

Pichaikkaran 2 doesn't really beg for our attention and nearly manages to hold us for an average watch.(more)

Vijay Antony fails to recreate his magic, due to a mediocre story and insipid writing

Pichaikkaran 2, Vijay Antony takes over the responsibilities of playing the lead, editor, music director, and for the first time, direction duties too. It�s the acting part where he shines the most. He brings in a variation between the two characters he plays � Vijay is a money-minded business magnate who reaches out to a sanitiser dispenser after holding his dead father�s hands, while Sathya kisses the feet of a child for whom he wishes he had always been there. But the script doesn�t really give him the space to do much. The idea of placing a poor man in the shoes of an affluent one is anything but new � we�ve seen MGR do it in Enga Veettu Pillai, Rajinikanth from the days of Billa, Athisaya Piravi, Uzhaippali and even Sivaji. It�s one of the oldest tropes of double-action films, and what baffles me more is the shockingly simple treatment.(more)
