Such a feel-good film
kawinstark20 May 2019
From the beginning to end, the film was kinda peaceful. It went in a smooth flow.

Plot was simple yet nice and well written. This is the first time, I can see the potential of S.J.Suriya coming out. His portions with the mouse were hilarious.

Heroine Priya bhavani Shankar is too damn cute, I can't take my eyes off her. She has done her part so gracefully.

Karanakaran as the comedian, maybe, is the only hope for Tamil cinema. He can pull out comedy so easily without shaming others or so, the laugh from him is genuinely laughable.

The main highlight of the film, the mouse. Cgi was so neat, it didn't seemed to be Cgi. So well done and applausabe.

Songs and background score were ok, did it's job when needed.

Climax was so good, made me satisfied, restored my faith in humanity.

Some flaws but still a brilliant feel good movie.

Started watching the movie with not much expectation but WOW! It was worth my time. A very unique story-line and amazing performance by the cast. Comic portions were so well done. Finally we have some really good comedy that doesn't shame or hurt others. Kudos to the writers , directors and everyone involved in the making of this amazing movie.

Good story and message.
haripriya18 June 2019
Good movie.

I chased lot of mouse in my life and sent them way from home. Simple story but great message. Must watch.

SJ Surya done great job. The camera work is awesome. Is that a trained mouse? we saw lot of Rat chasing movies, but this is unique. Music and BGM should have done more.

Mouse are always intelligent.

One that adults and children can enjoy
magnamias19 November 2019
Tamil movies don't have a great track record of being child-friendly in recent times. We make good movies - but far too many on caste violence, gang tussles, crazy killers and even crazier ghosts; which is why Monster impressed me. A god-fearing, moral, disciplined simpleton who has vowed to never harm animals is being tortured by.....a house rat! Wow. Can we please applaud the producer who decided to go ahead funding this film? Why can't we have more of these?

It was a danger, of course. A film on a theme as bizarre and simple as this need a good screenplay, solid animation and decent music. Yes, yes, and yes. Monster delivers. Just sit back and enjoy the lighter side of life over some ice cream and this film.

A wholesome entertainer for the whole family !!
postsenthil8 October 2019
This is a movie made on a relatively simple premise - the travails of the protagonist and a mouse that haunts his home.

But, director Nelson Venkatesan has woven a nifty narrative around this simple construct that is generously suffused with healthy humour. The movie also has a strong message of harmonious coexistence without being preachy.

SJ Surya is spot on with his part as a soft-spoken vulnerable protagonist in a measured performance that is a far cry from his usual exaggerated antics. He is ably supported by Karunakaran who is sharp with his comic timing and the beautiful Priya Bhavani Shankar who does competent job on her part.

The background score as well as songs from Justin Prabhakaran accentuate the flow of the proceedings. Director Nelson deserves credit for brisk narrative that seamlessly blends with breezy inoffensive comedy and technical finesse. If one could overlook some minor niggles, this sophomore (Oru Naal Koothu was his debut) effort heralds him as a talent to look forward to.

Overall, Monster is the latest addition to that critically endangered genre called wholesome healthy entertainer that could be enjoyed by the entire family.

A HIDDEN GEM !!

RATING -3.5/5

PS - Monster is available on Amazon Prime Video.

A nice feel good movie which deserves a watch once
Chandrasekar_V6 September 2019
The story revolves around SJ Suryah, whose life becomes a living hell when he starts to face rat problems in his house but at the same time, doesn't want to kill it either. How he manages to solve this situation forms the rest of the story.

The film works well mainly due to the humour content and due to the performances , especially from SJ Suryah. Though the second half is a bit predictable and melodramatic, this is definitely a nice feel good movie due to its slightly different story and execution along with a heartwarming climax.

Simple and Well executed Entertaining Flick
IkAziz4 August 2019
Usually Actor Sj Suriya is known for frequently playing gritty,broken and villainous characters.mostly he distance from doing hopeful and goodhearted guy kind of roles.

But here sj Suriya is something we never seen before his Character (Anjanam Azhagiya Pillai) is so relatable and Inspiring..

Plot is simple a Battle between Man and house rat.which sound's pretty Cartoony but Director Did fine job in writing screenplay that suitable for Even Adult audience to something care about...

Thanks to producers for making this film without preaching any whatsapp forward messages in this film and actress priya bhavani shanker Is so damn gorgeou.I rate 1 extra star just for her screen presence...

Delightful drama
vishnu_karthiklu21 July 2020
Monster's greatest positive is it's light hearted story and perfect casting! The CGI used in the movie is totally convincing and most importantly the comedy sequence is totaly relevant to the story and nothing seem to be forced! The concept of the film is totally new and refreshing! The technical aspects of the movie is also praise worthy! The climax of the movie is particularly touching and hits the right chords! Among all other paisa vasool movies, this kind of genuine attempts must be praised!
