Lokesh made a better film than Managaram
ndromaster25 October 2019
A drug burst, an injured cop and a Convicted Criminal who wants to meet her Daughter for First time in Life. Karthi is back as seen in Paruthiveeran. A seat edge thriller without masala.

You won't sit comfortably throughout the movie, means you'll sit on the edge
pravinkumar-2998325 October 2019
Karthi is one of the Best and underrated actor in Tamil Cinema. He did different roles in different movies. He did a very good job in this movie too. Camera work is another plus for this movie. Sam CS done a very good work in Background score!. Direction and screenplay are 💥. Definitely a worth movie to watch.

Don't get on the bad side is Dilli
sunilkumar-ramamurthy26 October 2019
Karthi feels very raw and rugged in this movie.i feel nowadays the entire story doesn't have to be good, but some really good scenes make you feel the movie is good. kaithi has some ridiculously enjoyable scenes and a good story too.there might be some logical flaws, but who cares if the stunts are that good. All the supporting cast fit their roles to perfection. The best aspect of the movie is the bgm from sam c.s . Brilliant guy but not recognised as much. The cinematography of the movie was one to talk about. Provided the lighting of the movie should be dark ,they have done a fantastic job at that. Overall a very enjoyable movie

India's own John Wick
sarathpillaijl16 December 2019
Oh man..... this one was splendid. Speechless, edge of the seat. As i am watching this late, i was waiting for the hero's entry and boy, did the movie deliver it! Throughout the movie you want the hero to win, the director has somehow found a way to make us feel that way. My heart was pounding throughout the duration of the movie. It is definitely going to glue your eye to the screen. The direction and screenplay is out of the world. He has even managed to capture the father daughter sentiments in this all round action movie. The cast is wonderful. Everybody did justice to their role. The story is fantastic. Its like desi version of John Wick. I would definitely love to see a sequel. Overall its an outstanding movie.

Kaithi blockbuster 🔥🔥
dhanushbalakumar25 October 2019
Warning: Spoilers
This movie proves us that no heroine no songs or not even glamour needed to make a movie commercial. Hats off to the director. The writing was really great it doesn't make a lag and few humourous scenes makes us smile. Overall it's a grippy fun and mass entertainer. This movie could be released on other dates than with Bigil. Since it's an centre of attraction people may miss this in theatres. Bgm was lit 🔥🔥🔥.

One of the best action thriller of Tamil Cinema
ssvivekanandh28 October 2019
The movie is intense from the word go. Dinesh kanagaraj has Managed to Keep us at the edge of the seat till the end. Every character has done Justice to their role so much so that you can't imagine others doing it. Big kudos to Karthi for donning the role of Kaithi thereby giving a big premise for this great action film. This movie is sound in all aspects starting from cinematography at night, editing, stunts, art direction, BGM and what not. One of the best movies ever released for Diwali.

Jabbardast Movie Ever
kaalayamrout25 June 2020
I don't know Tamil, yet watched with subtitles. Man, it's an edge of the seat movie. Many scenes were jaw dropping. Great direction, great background music. Actor Karthi was great. Even between the serious scenes, director has perfectly added emotional scenes. Girl's role was very cute.

And its a family movie. No adult scene.

Do Watch.

Filled with flaws and No logic but entertaining.
vaibhav-2337930 May 2020
The movie is very entertaining but tosses all common sense out of the window. Suh a huge gang whose single consignment loss will be 840 crores but no one in the whole gang has a gun even when they seize a huge gun from the gang arrest. But no one has a handgun all henchmen just have knives. What a stupid logic that no one Carries a gun and just knives. And even 30 people are unable to break even windows and if they had guns they could just shoot the lock on the grill but no they dont have guns so the whole night is wasted in breaking in

Technical best
ram-6390126 October 2019
Each & every small characters also have the depth in performance. Not a hero base movie all characters in positive roll are heros in this movie. No songs, no heroin, no flash back is the best think. BGM & lighting was mind-blowing.

Kaithi Diwali
harimalarm27 October 2019
One of the best film in karthi's carrier.First of all the big man of this film is LOKESH KANAGARAJ. After MAANAGARAM , he done a perfect one-night action thriller film. Lighting - Best lighting done in this movie , this movie fully took in night only . Without this perfect lighting team KAIDHI can not be released.Impressive lightings are used, there is no unnecessary lights. 10/10 for lighting. Cinematography- The perfect cinematography done.SATHYAN SOORYAN already proved him in Dheeran,maya,yudham sei such films. This is one of the best film in his carrier. You can see his hardwork in this movie. 10/10 for cinematography. Music - SAM CS done great job. His situation handled music is surprising.There is no songs in this movie , but his BGM is very effective.9.5/10 for music Cast - Dheena - Nice humour , in a action thriller film , some fun is need.His fun worked out nicely George maryan - He done a small, important and brave character.Everyone will like his character and his acting . Ramana - Acted well , he is also small and important character. But he is used for fight only. This is not a mistake , but small disappointment. But it may be turning point of his carrier. He did not acted long time. By this film , may be he will get any chances Narain - Nice actor , Already he proved him in Anjaadhey film. In this film also he done an important role and he done very well , acted also very well Last but not least KARTHI - We know him very well from paruthiveeran.His previous movie DEV is not worked out for him . But definitely this KAITHI will be evergreen film and will be a blockbuster. Because the character of Karthi is very strong. Moreover he acted very very well . Perfectly he match for that character. In every scene he proved , frame by frame he lived as DILLI character. As angerman , as father , as accused , as man who tell his story, in every angle , he changes his reactions and acting. Hatsoff to him. Once again he proved as an actor 4 STUDENTS - There is four college students involved in this movie. All of them acted very well , their characters gives fun and emotions Cast 10/10 Editing - Philomin raj edited this movie nicely . He gives us what we need and what the movie contain.There is no unnecessary scene in this KAiTHI 9/10 for editing Story and Direction - LOKESH KANAGARAJ The name LOKESH KANAGARAJ is enough to watch KAIDHI . Everything is done perfectly. Amazing direction . He wrote every character effectively. Every character have weight . There is no unnecessary character in this KAIDHI . Nice narration . I think he is specialist of one-night action thriller.Because MAANAGARAM also one night thriller.There is no mistake in his narration and direction PERFECT js only one word match for him 10/10 is not enough. PERFECT FILM FOR THIS DIWALI. MUST WATCH IN THEATRE.MUST WATCH WITH FAMiLy

Unrealistic movie that survives due to the emotional connection between a convict and his daughter.
coco9621 November 2019
Warning: Spoilers
Although the director has put his heart and soul in this movie, most of the sequences in this movie looks unrealistic. The protagonist more or less looks like a immortal being sent into this plot who could survive infinite amount of melee attacks and could also survive several stone attacks on the back of head.

One part of the plot that revolves around the police station was too good to be true. When a bunch of youngsters who are detained in police station for drunken driving in a normal world wouldn't involve themselves in acts that could potentially prove to be fatal. But, the director defies the norm here. The detained group of youngsters (read as good samaritans) decide to help a old cop who has been transferred to that police station that night keep vigil until the protagonist along with the senior cop arrive there. As one would expect, the police station that has rogues filled in it and parasitic thugs who try to jail break the police station from the outside finally butcher one of the detainees.

Just like his previous film, "maanagaram", lokesh kanagaraj has made this movie with logic defying stunts that are absurd to say the least. In spite of all this, the emotional bond between the protagonist who waits for 10 years to see his daughter for the first time lifts the spirits of the entire movie which is otherwise pulled down by the trite sequences.

Modern day remake of 1976's movie: " Assault On Precinct 13 "
rohitreviews15 November 2019
Good movie, bit over done at the end. Acting is good, story could have been little bit better, because it's more of an action movie rather than a story as such. Entertainment for sure

An engaging one! No songs, no heroine, no romance but emotionally charged actions and twists & turns kept us engaged throughout the film.
