Puli Movie Review The Hindu


Put differently, Chimbu Deven has forgotten to make a movie for adults. His inventions surprise us, delight us for a second or two – and then we’re back to the turgid story. The first half, especially, is a drag – generic comedy (Thambi Ramiah), generic romance (Shruti Haasan, who’s sure to snag a Best Supporting Belly Button nomination at next year’s award functions), a generic second heroine (Hansika Motwani), and the kind of generic background score that composers think scream “epic.” (You know the deep wail, the chorus that sounds as if it was belched out by a thousand Viking women during childbirth.)
