Critic reviews and ratings

  • The sharply-drawn characters, the terrifying insight into the psyche of terrorism and the sumptuous mounting and packaging add up to a movie that is quite easily one of the finest adventure sagas in recent times.

  • ...trust producer-director-actor Kamal Haasan to serve up the good old filmic formula in a well-mounted cinematic package that lends the largely predictable material an impressive veneer.

    Critic rating (?)

  • On the whole though, this is a well-packaged a flick. A 'must-watch' for action junkies.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • It has an interesting premise, superb combat scenes and Kamal Haasan's bravura act as its three aces. But a stretched second hour and far from dramatic finale dilute the impact.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Kamal Haasan's film is sensitive and mature but the basic problem is the inconsistent pace.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is a fill it-shut it-forget it film, whose big budget slickness never overpowers it, and which holds you while it lasts.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has to be admired for its scale and ambition.

    Critic rating (?)

  • A lot of it is unabashedly entertaining, although you'll wish the film was shorter and smarter.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is not a great film, but it deserves to have its chance to play in theaters.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Vishwaroop’s story is preposterous at the best of times, but it is directed with 100% conviction.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Vishwaroop minus Kamal Haasan is nothing but a hackneyed plot shot with mighty grandeur. The film may work primarily for the south superstar's brilliance and star power!

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Great style and a little substance, Vishwaroop is decent popcorn entertainment.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Vishwaroopam, unlike Kamal Hassan’s earlier epic ‘Dashavtharam’ isn’t flaky. But it is equally stilted and quite myopic in its approach. Yet, there is sombre tone and a seriousness within all the action-packed drama that makes it a film we could take seriously.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Is this a good movie or a bad movie? A bit of both--with both intentional and unintentional light relief.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Mountain out of a molehill - the ban that is. The film itself is a very average action flick attracting attention only because of Kamal Haasan.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the film is of a massive scale, well shot, the action set pieces are up to scratch; but it feels long, is occasionally tedious and performances are way too over the top.
