While the film is minting money, Annaatthe failed to impress critics. In his review for, Manoj Kumar wrote, “The film exposes a troubling practice in the Tamil film industry. It seems some filmmakers believe that as long as they have Rajinikanth in the lead, they can slack off in the director’s chair. Just write a few punchlines, and string together a few scenes in between fight sequences and songs, creating an illusion of a coherent flow of the story. It is Rajinikanth who has to do all the heavy lifting. He has to compensate for the shortcomings of his directors with every ounce of his energy and strength.” He gave the film only one star.
Annaatthe’s release a day ahead of Hindi film Sooryavanshi. The’s film is also grabbing audience’s attention at the box office. It had a blockbuster beginning at the box office with collection of Rs 26.29 crore on Friday.
