One of the most anticipated Kollywood films of the year 2022 thalapathy Vijay starrer Beast graced the theatres on 13 April 2022, read on to know the reviews, screen counts, and the day 1 box office collection.
The highly buzzed action comedy had made much anticipation among the cinephiles through the songs, trailers, and the collab of Thalapthy and the hit filmmaker Nelson.
But the Nelson directorial seems didn’t emanate what was expected from his action-comedy flick as the film is receiving mixed to negative responses from the critics as well as the fans.
Times of India gave the film 2.5 out of 5 stars, Mirchi 9 1.75/5 stars, and India Today gave 2.5/5 stars, panning the script by calling it predictable, critics also bashed the climax of the film, however, they praised Vijay’s performance and the music of Anirudh Ravichander, in particular, Halamithi Habibo and Johnny Gymkhana.
The first half of the film is average followed by the dull second half and the boring climax which will even dampen the enthusiasm of hardcore Vijay fans.
The highlights are the comedy scenes, the action in parts, and the performance of Vijay who carry the burden of poor screenplay solely on his shoulder throughout the film.
