Kotthu Review

The film received a mediocre response from critics and reviewers have stated that the political drama is different from what the films produced in the past. Efforts taken by the filmmakers to showcase the new side of politics, thereby highlighting the cold-blooded murders, fascism, unethical behaviour, violence, etc. have been appreciated.
