• Lockup deaths and police encounters will no longer be mere newspaper reports after watching Visaranai, as the film sends across a chilling message.

  • Director Vetrimaraan has delivered a film that doesn’t preach or sermonise – it delivers a jolt of reality. And it makes you think – because this could happen to you. Don’t miss it.

    Visaaranai is an emotionally intense and engrossing drama which gets its point across without being overly preachy.

  • With some genuine portrayals from Attakathi Dinesh, Raj Pradeesh, Samuthira Kani (who is fast becoming more of an actor than director) and Aadukalam Murugadoss, Visaranai strikes a warning bell that puts you on guard to never go out of the line. At the end of the film, my mind wandered to Talvar and how it was a film that drew a lot of attention to a real life incident that shocked the nation. Visaranai falls under that bracket.

    Vetrimaaran has proved his mettle as a full-blown filmmaker who knows how to balance the trade and commercial aspects of a movie, even if it has superior shades of an art film.

    ‘Visaranai’ is by no means only an art or docu film, but fits into the commercial arena as well as it has thrills, especially a nail biting climax, humor, action,  a little painful love story in the background and above all filled with real life incidents which one can easily relate to.

    Verdict : Go for this rare gem which you will treasure in your mind for a long time.

  • In spite of handling a blood-curdling script, Vetrimaaran has managed to stay away from gratuitous gore which has worked in favour of Visaranai. The film is hard-hitting and gritty, that makes it an impactful watch.

  • Some may call Visaranai to be a violent film, while most of the others may say it is a brilliant piece of art that is so real and suspenseful. But if you’re a fan of crime thriller or film that depicts pain, do not miss it!
    Verdict: Visaranai, a must watch uniquely treated crime thriller that represents true cinema.
