Oneindia - Rating 3.5: Vikramasimha is a wonderful experiment in Indian cinema, but it may not impress many Rajini fans. The movie has an interesting story and it could have been a brilliant movie for Rajini fans, if it was brought to the screen without the animated photo-realistic motion picture format.
Indiaglitz Rating 3: Vikramasimha is a definite summer treat and is totally worth the wait. As noted by experts in this field, Vikramasimha has kicked off on an optimistic note and is certainly a trend setter in many respects.
Telugu123 - Rating 3: Vikramasinha has Rajnikanth in an all new avatar. This historical film, which has good technical values might be limited to a certain extent, as his fans are used to see the real Rajni. Those who are interested in technological flicks, will like Vikramasimha, for others it is strictly just a one time watch.
NowRunning - Rating 2.5: Vikramasimha got it every thing right for a perfect Rajinikanth film but the usage of photo realistic technology totally killed the effect. Even diehard fans could not manage to digest Rajinikanth as cartoon character.
BharatStudent - Rating 3: Not that appealing in story but good in making, can be watched once. Continue to read film critics' verdicts in the slideshow.
