On his way back from a school football match Sikandar finds a gun. Despite being warned against it by his new friend Nasreen Sikandar picks up the gun believing it to be the answer to all his problems. However he gets embroiled further and further into si
Times of India
Kashmir’s beauty stopped inspiring storywriters and filmmakers some time ago.
SIFY
It's a lure tugging straight at the alpha male's heart.
Rediff 
Sikander is an earnest and well-intentioned film. Set in Kashmir, it looks at how violence and the Kafkaesque politics and power games of the state have frayed the lives of its children.

On the whole SIKANDAR doesn't quite hit the goal.
Bollywood Hungama
This one fails because the child and his warm ambitions of playing football or buying for his aunt a washing machine are just cursory mentions. The filmmakers focus instead on the supposed politics of the region, a lame conspiracy, and some larger comment

Sikandar is a high voltage entertainer which failed to reach the Telugu Audience. Sikandar Movie Review & Rating was last modified: August 20th, 2014 by Raghu
I Luv Cinema
It’s always feels terrible to slam someone’s work that is dribbling of makers sweat and blood. But this film will make you sweat. It is vastly tedious to watch something as foolish as Sikander. The direction wanders in every direction only to culminate into a pointless ending. The music and cinematography are major highlights of the film. Sikander is low on content, overhyped and predictable. A lot better film was possible with such a brilliant star cast. On the whole, We couldn’t find a single half engaging-entertaining moment in this cinematic rape perpetrated by Linguswamy. Do tell us if you could.

Boring Action Saga!
Gulte
Yes, the message is of aman (peace)
Smash Hits
Suriya fans have tons of scenes to enjoy and scream, and Samantha’s fans have gazillions of rapturous moments to cherish.
Cineoutlook
On the whole, while a few numbers of ""Sikandar"" are really good, the others fall flat. It fails to live up to the great music one usually gets to hear in Sudhir Misra's films.
Hindustan Times 
‘Sick’ and Sloppy.Overall, ‘Sikindar’ is an old pickled underworld mafia story with predictable treatment. Lingusamy and Suriya are worth of delivering better and far better movies than this one. It’s a bummer for those Telugu audiences who look at Kollywood with a bit of respect.
Cinejosh
Sikindar is an underworld revenge drama. It is all about Raju Bhai (Suriya) and his best friend Chandu (Vidyut Jammwala), local dons, reigning in Mumbai. As expected, the city gets a tough cop and he has a naughty daughter (Samantha). The confrontation between cops and Raju Bhai’s gang is an expected phenomena. Sikindar will remain as a bad memory for Suriya for various reasons. The director even failed to do justice for Raju Bhai’s role, the film’s protagonist. Despite giving much hype, build up to Raju Bhai’s role, director failed to live up to hype he generated, failed to establish Raju Bhai, his right doings, what made him star among masses. That’s not all. Right form beginning to the end, the movie is filled with umpteen flaws. Not even the climax could satisfy you. For your health reasons, we strongly suggest you to stay away from Sikindar.

Sikandar features (I can’t quite bring myself to say stars) Dastur as young, twittery orphan Sikandar, and Ayesha Kapoor as his classmate Nasreen. Parzan was last seen as the very cute little Sardar boy in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and I mus

A 170 minutes of Terrible Torture.A lot better film was possible with such a brilliant star cast. On the whole, We couldn’t find a single half engaging-entertaining moment in this cinematic rape perpetrated by Linguswamy.

One cannot expect different plot or well framed screen play
Chirtamala
Sikandar has brilliant performances by lead actors and sound production values, but it lacks an interesting screenplay. The movie fails meet the expectations created by its promos before its release.

India Glitz
Overall, this is a film which appeals largely to fans of Suriya and to those who seek proper action masala. At the box office, this has a good chance of entering the profit zone.
BharatStudent
Strictly for Suriya fans.Watch it only if you are a die-hard fan of Suriya.

SupergoodMovies
Sikindar lacks strength to succeed.Story never takes off right from the start till the end. He loaded the film with full of unwanted boring elements which spoiled the main plot.
AndhraHeadlines
Only the lead pair's performances are the saving grace. Suriya’s Sikandar may not be a pick from the lot for family audiences, as there are plenty of action sequences.Sikandar movie is strictly for Suriya fans!!!

Sikander is a film that speaks volumes stripping innocence from the already innocent. It talks about children as victims and how they have literally become the ones that suffer at the hands of politics and war. The film is good but not great. Sikander may

Glam Sham
On the whole, Sikandar is one film which starts on a entertaining note, and bogs down completely during the second half. Suriya’s stylish looks and Samantha’s glamour are the only plus points. Rest of the film is quite predictable, and makes up for a watch only for Suriya.
