Star Performance

Vijay Sethupathi and Parthiepan join again after Naanum Rowdy Dhaan. Both of them have given commendable performances. Raashi Khanna and Manjima have got meaty roles, and they excelled in it. Bagavathi Perumal is good as usual with his facial expressions. Sathyaraj impresses in his cameo.


The story is not new but comes with some traces of political satirical comedy films, yet it is scripted finely. The narration is okayish, and the characters are finely designed. Right stars are picked, and everyone is good in their respective roles. Although the story goes interestingly, it turns predictable soon. The music and cinematography are neat and impressive. The production values are quite good.

What’s There?

  • Comedy scenes worked out well

What’s Not There?

Usually, Vijay Sethupathi movies are good with some message, which also falls in the same category. The political satire comes with favorite stars and commendable performances. With a good script, narration, performance, BGM, and visuals, Tughlaq Durbar is watchable once!
