Star Performance

All the stars have given good performance from their side, yet Laxman’s performance needs a special mention.


Like the usual script that has middle-aged friends set on a road trip, Payanigaru too starts. The casting is good and all the stars fit in their roles well. The first half is full of conversation, which might not impress all the audiences. The interval block is well designed with essential twists that make the audiences to expect the exciting second half. The music is okayish and the cinematography and editing are good too.

What’s There?

  • Good performances of the stars
  • Interesting twists

What’s Not There?

  • The draggy first half with conversation mode
  • Interesting elements should have been inserted


Although the film has some interesting elements in the last part of the first half, if some interesting scenes had been added, it would have attracted the audiences. But, the film is natural and did have some twists. Payanigaru is watchable once!
