Star Performance

Dhanush had done his best, as usual. As he has dubbed his voice, it doesn’t seem to be a dubbed film. The rest of the stars have rendered their best.


Ken Scott has done a good job. His direction is fantastic. All the stars fit in their roles perfectly and make us travel along with the film. Dhanush’s body language suits the role well and he might get more offers in Hollywood, soon. The excellent BGM by Amit Trivedi gels well with the script. As the scriptwriters had done a fantastic job, we don’t feel it as a Hollywood film. Thanks to Jayaram Sankaran and Vikrem Vybav! Varsha Bharath is the creative consultant and special thanks to her too!

What’s There?

  • Performances of the stars are fantastic
  • Script, screenplay and execution are excellent

What’s Not There?

  • Except for a few minor mistakes nothing big


Pakkiri is definitely a good film to watch! It is happy to see Dhanush performing in a Hollywood film and receiving a good response, universally.
