Times Of India Review
TOI Review: Given that Jigarthanda was the first script that Karthik Subbaraj had written before he 'compromised' and made Pizza (the applause that his name generates during the title credits show how influential this young director has become), he should know how a good filmmaker can exploit a compromise.
Rediff: Jigarthanda is an engrossing gangster film with a series of bizarre twists and turns that keeps you guessing.
