Padavettu Reviews

Critics gave the film a positive response stating that the makers have showcased an ambitious subject in an entertaining manner. While there is lot of sense and thoughtful intentions, the execution of the film is questioned as parts of the film might come across as misleading or being uninformed. Reviewers also questioned the shift from political drama to shedding light on the story of the man himself, and this shift eventually changes the motive of the film. However, collectively, both the critics and the audience have stated that the film is definitely a one-time watch.
