Critics Review

'Amman' Nayanthara and RJ Balaji deliver an entertaining family treat this Deepavali.
2.75 / 5 ()
A superb Urvashi and Nayanthara in a somewhat middling dramedy. Part-comedy, part-social drama and part-Amman film, is well-intentioned and has several LoL scenes, but doesn’t come together as a whole
Srivatsan S ()
Mookuthi Amman is a harmless entertainer with a social message, and would have worked better with an interesting screenplay and exciting scenes.
2.25 / 5 ()
No dull moment in this Nayanthara-starrer. Nayanthara looks regal, but it is not enough, as she takes her character too seriously. The main problem with Mookuthi Amman is that it suffers from an identity crisis.
2.5 / 5 Manoj Kumar R ()
A time pass entertainer with commendable performances and a topical message!
2.75 / 5 ()
Nayanthara and Urvashi steal the show; RJ Balaji brings the house down with one-liners. It delivers the message it intends to, in an effective way, by taking potshots at superficial belief systems, political parties which resorts to divisive politics, and so on.
3.5 / 5 Thinkal Menon ()
