In Kurangu Bommai, while the tightly-woven plot keeps us hooked for the entire duration, the fabulous performances from the entire cast draws us deep into the story. Bharathirajaa is phenomenal as a naïve old man who doesn’t mind doing the wrong thing for his friend (the way he uses his body to put across Sundaram’s frailty is something that has to be seen), while Kumaravel, a staple of Radha Mohan’s feel-good films, is a revelation here in a diabolical role. Once again, as he did in Kuttrame Thandanai and Oru Kidaiyin Karunai Manu, the understated Vitharth gives us a very relatable character, an everyman who finds himself in a unique spot of bother.

The New Indian Express | 7/10 Star

Vidharth isn’t really set the screen on fire with his performances, and he doesn’t have to. It’s his ability to remain quietly in the shadows, to be content playing your average man on the streets that make these films the gritty, realistic stories they are. Kurangu Bommai’s story, admittedly, isn’t one that you’d believe could happen in your neighbourhood. It’s something about a statue being smuggled for crores, and how the fates of various people get intertwined. Read more…

Deccan Chronicle | 9/10 Stars

 At a time when big stars’ films disappoint the audiences to the core, here comes a small film Kurangu Bommai helmed by debut director Nithilan as a breath of fresh air. With a solid story and a very intriguing screenplay, Nithilan’s perfect non-linear hyperlink narration of Kurangu Bommai has emerged as one of the best films of the year. The highlight of Kurangu Bommai is the brilliant performances extracted by Nithilan from the entire cast. The technical aspects are also a big plus. Background score by Ajaneesh is exemplary and adds to the overall atmosphere. Cinematography by Udhayakumar deserves special mention. And Abhinav Sundar Nayak’s editing packages the film nicely to an acceptable time frame. Read more…
