Malini 22 Palayamkottai Review – New Indian Express

So, the inner and outer transformation hardly reveals her character in a new light, except for the femme fatale make-up in the later scenes.  It’s a promising debut in Tamil for Krish (son of actors Jayabharathi-Sathar), who reflects both the positive and negative side of Varun with fair competence. With the intensity and focus missing here, it is a disappointing fare. Comparisons are odious, but inevitable. This version not just falls short of the earlier one, but also fails to be gripping, even when viewed on its own merits.
