Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

In a faraway land, live a cruel tribe who go by the name of Betals. Blue eyes and Dracula fangs are their distinguishing features. They also have strange powers that can get them to fly like Batman and fight like Gladiators. Their only aim is to commit atrocities…

Hindustan Times:

Often Indian cinema is sheer fantasy, trying to spin the unbelievable into a story and script. And some Tamil films — at least those that step into the genre of fantasy — can be just unbearable to watch. Vijay-starrer, fantasy adventure Puli, despite…

DNA:

This movie is a departure for Ilayathalapathy Vijay because it’s in the historical-fantasy genre which he has never attempted before in his career. Why he chose this particular subject and script is a question only the actor can answer…

Bollywood Hungama:

There was a lot of interest around this week’s dubbed release PULI, because of the presence of Sridevi in this big budget fantasy movie. Though Sridevi doesn’t disappoint in the film, this big budgeted fantasy drama falters on many fronts…

India Today:

Chimbu Deven had all the ingredients he needed: the industry’s biggest star, the most-loved yesteryear heroine, two heroines (like the good old commercial Tamil films), and a perfect antagonist. But the dish on the big screen can hardly matches up to the expectations…

Rediff:

Puli makes for a truly bad trip, warns Raja Sen. By the time Sridevi shows up in the massive-budget fantasy epic Puli, its few charms have worn off and the iconic actress appears like an empress who’s shown up at an unimaginative costume party…

Glamsham:

PULI (dubbed in Hindi), is one of those movies that leave you with a thumping headache. It’s like entering a grand wedding with state-of-the art light, sound and décor and with cuisine from across the world, but with no bride and groom.
