Doctor is scripted and directed by “Nelson.” “Sivakarthikeyan,” Priyanka Arul Mohan, Vinay Rai, Yogi Babu, Milind Soman, Shaji Sen, Deepa Shankar, Redin Kingsley, Arun Alexander, Archana Chandhoke, Rajiv Lakshman, Raghuram, and Zaara Vineet are in the main cast. Anirudh Ravichander composed the music. Sivakarthikeyan produced the film with KJR Studios. Vijay Kartik Kannan cranked the camera, and Nirmal edited the film.


Dr Varun works in the military. Padmini is Varun's fiance.  Due to some differences between them, Varun and Padmini decided to break up their relationship. Soon, Varun comes to know that Padmini’s niece is kidnapped. So, he decides to find her out and starts investigating. He gets a lot of shocking information while dealing with this. Was her able to find her? The rest of the story reveals who kidnapped her and what their motive is.

Star Performance

Sivakarthikeyan did a decent job as usual. His body language, expressions, and dialogue delivery are good. Vinay appears a baddie once again. However, he didn’t have much scope to showcase his skill. Milind Soman should have been used better. Priyanka has nothing to do, and she is a template heroine. Yogi Babu is good with his counters. Archana and Deepa are good in their roles.


Nelson has chosen a good script, and his screenplay is engaging. After his super hit heroine-centric Kolamavu Kokila, he comes with an exciting plot with a new heroine to Tamil. Although the performances and the action sequences are reasonable, initially, it seems only Sivakarthikeyan is focused more. However, the other stars had also done their portions well. The antagonists should have been given some more substantial portions to do. However, Yogi Babu’s comedy has provided relief. The BGM and songs by Anirudh are good. The cinematography and editing are okay. After turning out to be an action hero, SK has chosen different subjects than before, which is a good sign for his career.

What’s There?

  • The story and screenplay are good
  • The film is technically sound
  • Sivakarthikeyan's different attempt and performance

What’s Not There?

  • The villain roles should have been made better


Although there are some loopholes in the film, Doctor is definitely a one-time watch for the screenplay, direction, and artists’ performance. Doctor – a decent medicine!
