While a Rajinikanth film does not need any reason to work Kochadaiiyaan has more than enough reasons for it to not work.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
'Kochadaiiyaan' is technically ambitious, aesthetically appealing, visually striking and scarcely unimaginative, all at the same time
Surendhar MK, Only Kollywood
Indeed a must-watch for Rajnikanth’s fans!
TarunB, Chirtamala
Performance captured realistic animation films have never been made before in India. So when a filmmaker takes up the challenge of making a film using that technology they need to be applauded for their ingenuity no matter what the end product turns out t

With his trademark moves and impeccable punch dialogues, Rajinikanth receives whistles galore and leaves us wanting for more, it is needless to say that all this is possible by only one star and that is by the superstar himself

It is not very catchy or too entertaining but you just get a feeling that the album is exactly what was needed for this particular film

While a Rajinikanth film does not need any reason to work, Kochadaiiyaan has more than enough reasons for it to not work.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
Over the top melodrama, double, triple, and quadruple crossing characters hiding their motives and taking revenge against anything and anyone in sight is are all elements that are well-worn and effective tropes in Indian film

The god, the phenomenon, the ultra magnificent, the ultimate Rajinikanth is back and Vow!!.. around fours years before 'Enthiran' (Robot in Hindi) the Thalaiva along with Shankar turned the heads of the west and now with 'Kochadaiiyaan' the super star blesses Indian cinemas motion capture animation as director Soundarya Rajinikanth adds dazzlingly spectacular pages in India's animation history.
