Vishwaroopam - Movie Reviews

Bollywood Hungama
There’s absolutely nothing in Vishwaroopam which would enrage anyone and surprisingly the violence isn’t as gory as it could have been. The biggest achievement for Vishwaroopam is that for most part, it makes you forget that you are watching a Tamil or a Telugu film.
PostNoon
Viswaroopam has all elements not only in the social part but its intelligent way of presentation in the film.Viswaroopam is technically brilliant film.
ycinemas.in
Viswaroopam might not go well with the masses but this film has been made with highly technical values and will remain as one of the better film of Legendary Actor Kamal Hassan.
SouthNews
Vishwaroopam is a technically brilliant movie, but its Box Office appeal will most likely be limited to multiplexes and A centers. Brilliant cinematography and superbly shot action sequences are major assets for the film

Movie review: Vishwaroopam
Behind Woods
Kamal Hassan's guts for choosing a subject on terrorism is appreciable. But he lacked in executing the film in entertaining pattern, which makes it accepted in certain section of audiences.
TollyArea
Go and Watch Viswaroopam. It is ‘A’ class thriller movie. It is just average flick.
SupergoodMovies
Like Hollywood that is obsessed with Osama Bin Laden and terror post-9/11, actor-writer-director Kamal Haasan, one of India's finest film talents, gets drawn to Osama this time.
The Times Of India
Finally, Vishwaroopam is a brilliant and technically the best film. The film is like a Hollywood film and scenes in abroad were beautiful. Though the release of the film is delayed in some areas, but surely watch this film, it deserves.
Movies.InfolinePages
The action sequences are well executed and considering the inhospitable terrains they were shot in. Sanu Verghese’s camera work is noteworthy as he brings a certain slick look to the whole film.
Rediff Movies
Viswaroopam is worth a watch for Kamal Haasan’s daring attempt in making the film on a large scale.
EenaduCinema.com
More than the way Terrorism plot is handled, Kamal has shown the courage in picking this contemporary subject which has certain element of controversy with in itself. In contrast, we cannot find even a single scene which has something wrong to interpret or lead to unnecessary disputes in the name of religion.

A riveting spy thriller
Viswaroopam is the dream project of Kamal Hassan and he has made it the way he wanted it to be. It’s a spy thriller with sluggish narration. Don’t expect major commercial payoffs while watching the movie (except for a scene I mentioned two in my review so far). If you have orientation of watching Hollywood films, you might connect with it. The emotional content should have more depth so that audiences can travel with the character and understand the motives. The success of the movie will depend on how well audiences connect with the content.
Idle Brain
The first half of the movie has a good pace filled with breathtaking, spellbinding and edge of the seat action sequences mixed with doses of comedy. Though the film was not shot in Afghanistan but one cannot make it out as the visuals are so surreal and capture your imagination

The narrative technique of flashback episodes is thrilling. The film's only minus point - the placement of songs works as speed breakers for a spy thriller.
NDTV Movies
Go and Watch Viswaroopam. It is ‘A’ class thriller movie. It is just average flick.
SupergoodMovies
Almost three years, Kamal Hassan has taken to complete this film. He played different roles for this movie as director actor and writer. His hard work and research on technical values to implement for this has been seen on frame.

Viswaroopam has universal appeal for action, narration and technology.

Viswaroopam is worth a watch for Kamal Haasan’s sincere efforts in making a quality film.
Searchandhra
It’s worth wait to watch in Tamil Nadu, do not encourage any kind of Piracy and never ever miss this roller coaster ride given by Kamal Haasan to the world cinema
Only Kollywood
The pre interval block and racy action sequences are positives from the movie. The placement of songs should have been better. Kamal Hassan almost gave out his heart and soul for the movie.

Vishwaroopam is a technical showpiece with mastermind screenplay of Kamal! Don’t Miss it!

Kamal Hassan has shown his Viswaroopam in acting with multi-shade character in this flick. Kamal bought smiles with feminine mannerisms as a kathak dance teacher

The movie is a technically a brilliant movie. Action sequences are major asset of the movie. Just only a slow pace of narration and songs are poor. Kamal Haasan deserves respect for having the courage to mount the film on such a scale and with such high technical values.

Watch Vishwaroopam for its making, technical finesse, Kamal Haasan's effort and the detailing. In one word, Vishwaroopam is well-made spy thriller.

Vishwaroopam is a pulsating thriller, Hollywood style

On the whole, ‘Vishwaroopam’ is a decent movie which appeals to those who like serious spy thrillers. Lack of entertaining elements and drama makes it less appealing to family audience and mass

Review: Kamal Haasan is brilliant in Vishwaroopam
Finally, Vishwaroopam is an outstanding technical thriller from Kamal Hassan. But, Very slow pace in narration. The film is most likely for Multiplex and A centers only. Don't go with high expectations. Go and Watch the film! It is a worth watch!
Movies.TodaysWorld
Viswaroopam doesn't have any commercial elements and lacks mass entertainment. However, it has its own merits and has to be watched for its technical brilliance.
Gulte
Viswaroopam is technically excellent and Kamal Haasan’s efforts in making this spy thriller with well-captured action sequences, brilliant performances are seen on-screen.
Andhravilas
Tamil version of this movie is bound to make money in US,kamal has a very large fan base and he is next to Rajni in US.For sure movie will have packed houses over the weekend ,inclement weather may cause a little dent on the east coast.

Vishwaroopam is miles ahead of other Indian movies in terms of technicality. But Kamal Hassan the director had failed to deliver the racy screenplay which is necessary for binding audience to a thriller.
Tollywoodandhra
Kamal Hassan has dealt the subject with a lot of honesty and showed what terrorism looks like. None need to discuss or remind one of Kamal’s credentials. He had got through this subject an excellent opportunity to show the talent in him as a director.
