Lacks Speed

The director painstakingly explains every scientific detail, which sometimes back-fire. Anand Shankar should be credited for staying loyal to the script without deviating too much away from the story, barring the 3 songs which are considered mandatory to meet commercial requirements.(more)

Vikram in full form, technically strong too. But script and logic could have been handled better

In an investigative action thriller such as this, scenes must proceed at a rapid pace. But there are moments when we leave the happenings on screen and wander around. The team should have focused more on the story and screenplay, which could have resulted in a better product. The intended twists are...(more)

One Dimensional. Watch it for the lead pair Vikram and Nayanthara, stylish making and some neat action sequences.

Anand Shankar, who gave the neatly packaged 'Arima Nambi' has attempted a sci-fi with chemical warfare as the core subject and promises a lot with his set up in the first half only to disappoint with a dragging and illogical second half which pulls down the whole affair to a mediocre level.(more)

Irumugan Review Irumugan is all about Akilan vs Love . Let it be any role , Vikram does it with beauty from a violent raw agent to a girlish type man . Wow ! He just nailed it. Talking about Nayanthara , even she showed her class acting which was very nice to watch. The only perk in her character w... (more)


Madhan Prabhu

Too many logic loopholes made this wannabe interesting thriller a below average film. Vikram this time had selected a better script but the director messed up in the second half; which turns as predictable and over the top towards climax. Technically the movie is sound with Harris Jeyaraj and RD Raj... (more)

Irumugan is definitely a watchable action drama sci-fi thriller. A little more care would have made it a superb watching experience. The believable factors in SCI-FI movies are always a worrying factor for Tamil audience, but still there are flaws with what Anand has set to his Irumugan. Harris save... (more)
