Kathakali - Movie Reviews

'Kathakali', is a fairly watchable thriller
The Hindu
Pandiraj obviously wanted to attempt something new but he was led into including commercial ingredients like any other filmmaker, the result is just an average watch
The Hindu
'Kathakali', is a bold and tough one night story which has enough in it to put Vishal's career back on track
Only Kollywood
Pandiraj has accomplished with his newfangled attempt and has crafted a decent screenplay, with good characterizations and stunning performances by actors
Studio Flicks
€˜Kathakali'€™, keeps you guessing for most of the time which makes for an absorbing two hours of movie watching that has compelling acting, fine direction and enjoyable music to help the cause
Kathakali is a finely etched thriller with an interesting bunch of twists that keep us at the edge of our seats
Now Running
Vishal’s action thriller is taking its own sweet time to drive its point!
Transforming Vishal into a superman, 'Kathakali', might just have crossed over the line between scrap and sense
Hindustan Times
Director Pandiraj’s Kathakali is a well-scripted murder mystery but is marred by pointless romantic angle and mundane comedy
An engaging story backed with neat performance of Vishal and Catherine Tresa
International Business Times
Hip Hop Tamizha keeps their respect intact with 'Kathakali', which is yet another attempt at experimental music within the brackets of commercial cinema
Only Kollywood
Director Pandiraj tries his hand in action thriller, and the end result is a mixed bag
This flick will send shivers down your spine
Pandiraj might score again with this thriller too, which has a cautiously executed second half supported by a commendable cast making it a success at the box office this Pongal
