Palnadu is a revenge thriller which is good in parts. Though it is an action drama, it doesn’t run behind hero’s image. You can see a villain and a character artiste playing important roles than that of a hero in Palnadu. In spite of Tamil nativity and few boring scenes, it can be watched once. It is undoubtedly Vishal’s best film after Pandem Kodi.
Rating: 3.0/5
Vishal scored a HIT with Palnadu. It has feel-good romance in the first half followed by interesting action package in second half. It’s a Worth watch movie.
Rating: 2.75/5
Overall an above average entertainer from Vishal for this Diwali. Can watch once without expectations. One should say, this is a complete different movie from the routine from the director.But should wait and see how the audience will receive it. Audience reception in the coming days decides the fate of this movie. For Vishal a decent flick. It will add a point or two to his filmy career
Rating: 2.5/5
On the whole, Panaadu entertains you only in bits and pieces. Vishal’s new avatar, Interval block and climax episode are some plus points. But a lack luster screenplay, and below par direction makes this film far from engaging.
Rating: 2.5/5
How two ordinary people take on a man who has money and power is the crux of the story. If handled well, it is the kind of plot that can be told at any point of time. But one has to be careful in the way each character is chalked out. If an ordinary man goes through pain, then that audience should be able to feel the pain through the characters. Here, character development plays a key role. And it is here that the director fails. He introduces each character and leaves it at that. He should have focused on the father’s character and put in scenes to establish his character and mannerisms. But nothing much is done. Similarly, though the audience are told that the hero is a timid guy, there are no scenes to register the same
Rating: 2.25/5
Director took some time to establish the plot. In the very first half vishal was portrayed in a very innocent way. The story, conflict looks very gloomy and barbaric. Few comedy tidbits, romance, and lot of emotions are included. The plot and the story line hd the same essence of directors previous film Na Peru Shiva.
Rating: 2.0/5
Director Suseenthiran has always selected some middle class drama revenges earlier. This time too, he picked up a story where a coward middle class guy and his helpless father decide to kill a big-goon separately. The way Suseenthiran showed how recce should be done before planning a murder is fine
Rating: 2.0/5
The film takes off with a song which has strong Tamil flavor to it. In fact this film has so much Tamil nativity which may not appeal to Telugu audience. The story takes its own time to move forward and only gets interesting after the entry of heroine. There is good fun in the romantic episodes, which will be liked by the youngsters.Story takes an expected turn at the interval point and the director tried to keep the revenge drama as natural as possible. His ideas are good but the execution part doesn't live up to expectations. The film drags on and on in the second hour due to bad screenplay. Director failed to raise the curiosity and make audience excited about the happenings on screen.
Rating: 2.0/5
Palnadu shows some promise at times, but doesn't really raise the bar and fails to stand and deliver during the inevitable. Despite few good performances and interesting scenes, Palnadu falls flat as a movie. Vishal's hard work has gone wasted yet again. He needs to try hard to find good scripts rather trying to pull off weaker ones.
Rating: 1.75/5
Suseendhran came with routine story. except for the first half an hour there is nothing in the film. Everything turns predictable. One wonders how Vishal is signing such inept stories. Suseendran didnot come with any novelty in narration and with poor screenplay and direction, he didnot offer much for the actors to perform. The film lacks comedy, heroine's glamour adding to the woes of the movie lovers.
Rating: 1.5/5
True to his taste, director loaded the film with full Tamil flavour. Extreme violence scare away family viewers from theaters. Comedy and romantic sccenes do not workout well. Songs are not at all appealing making people lose interest in the film.

Palnadu is worth watching than Krrish3 for this DIWALI .. Perfect script and Vishal’s performance were the reasons to visit the theatre ..Vishal definitely bagged a successful movie with his maiden production venture .. Paisavasool entertainer .. Pretty much better than Vishal’s previous movies .. Stunt scenes were bit idiotic
