Climax Garnered Negative Reviews
Climax, which is loosely based on the life of late South Indian sex siren Silk Smitha, opened to negative reviews from most of the film critics, who criticised its uninteresting and slow-paced narration. The film garnered poor ratings.
Sana Khan's Performance In Climax
The whole story of Climax revolved around Sana Khan's role. The actress had very good scope for performance, but she failed to live upto the expectations. Most of the film critics pointed at Sana's acting as the biggest drawback of the movie.
Sana Khan may feel disappointed if she expected to win an award or two with this film. She has nothing exceptional to do as far as emoting or performing is concerned. She just has to look desirable, like a porcelain beauty.
Times Of India Review
Sana Khan is hardly convincing while portraying the role of an erotic star who had a turbulent life.
Now Running Review
Sana Khan looks pretty as a wax doll, but that's about how far it goes when it comes to her performance. At times wooden and at times dramatized, it's a mixture of an act that is more about pouting and prancing than emoting.
This film has a basic structure evidently inspired from the highly overrated Bollywood blockbuster The Dirty Picture. But when the Hindi version had a terrific performance from Vidya Balan, her Malayali counterpart Sana Khan come up with a pathetic show. She is fine while doing some of the glamorous scenes but when she has to act, the actor reveals her lack of talent.
Theatre Balcony Reviewer
It is very unfortunate to see Sana Khan in such a role, rather than appearing in sensual scenes, she hardly had a role which can showcase her talent. Sana Khan looked glamorous, that's the only thing the script expected her to do.
Now when I talk about the casting, Vidya Balan in The Dirty Picture or Sana Khan in Climax justifies the real Silk Smitha. Vidya did a commendable job and so has Sana Khan to an extent. She was much beyond my expectations as the Poonkodi aka Supriya in the movie. She has an expressive face!
Kerala Box Office Review
On the whole, this is a Sana Khan show. But, it is a matter of doubt that whether she was successful in connecting with the audience. Most of the time, she possessed a single expression.
Will Sana Khan Impress Telugu Audience?
With Gajjela Gurram slated to release on screens in Andhra Pradesh soon, it should be seen how Telugu audience and film critics will receive the movie. Stay locked to this space to read Oneindia review.
