Sikandar is an action thriller movie with all other commercial ingredients to woo the mass audience. Surya' electrifying performance is the main highlight of the film. Lingusamy's interesting story and punch dialogues, Yuvan Shankar Raja's trendy music, Santosh Sivan's brilliant cinematography, Samantha's glamour, superb action, dance and comedy scenes and beautiful costumes and locales are other attractions of the movie.
Lingusamy has written a routine story for Sikandar,
which is all about guy's search for his brother. But he has spiced
it up with commercial ingredients. The movie begins with a simple
introduction of Surya. The first half of the film has a few
romantic and funny scenes that keep you engaged. A twist at the
interval, the movie gains momentum, but the second half lets you
down with its boring screenplay. The climax is predictable.
Kanya Kumari based Krishna (Surya) comes to Mumbai in search of
his brother Raju. In bid to find clues about his brother, he meets
Kadar Bhai, who narrates the story of Raju (Surya) and his friend
Chandru (Vidyut Jamwal). Things start falling apart between the
two, when Raju falls in love with commissioner's daughter
(Samantha). One a fine day, someone attacks on both Chandru and
Raju. What happened next? Will Krishna be able to find his brother?
Will Raju be get his lady love? The rest of the story answers these
Surya has played double roles in Sikandar and he has
done justice to both. He rocks the viewers with his sterling
performance. Samantha has less scope for performance, but she
impresses you with her glamourous looks. The director has failed to
use talented artistes Brahmanandam. Others like Vidyut Jamwal,
Soori, Rajpal Yadav, Manoj Bajpai, Dalip Tahil and Murali Sharma
have done justice to their roles. Chitrangada Singh and Maryam
Zakaria will also impress you with their special
Sikandar has rich production values. Yuvan Shankar
Raja's songs and background score are main attractions in the
technical front. Santosh Sivan has done brilliant picturisation and
his cinematography is another big highlight of the film. The
choreography of action and dance is just superb. Other technical
departments have delivered commendable jobs in the film.
Overall, Sikandar has brilliant performances by lead
actors and sound production values, but it lacks an interesting
screenplay. The movie fails meet the expectations created by its
promos before its release. Blame it upon Linguswamy. It may fail to
impress even Surya fans. Watch it on your own risk.

Fab Flickz @FabFlickz
#Sikandar. Screenplay is the major minus for the film. It
doesn't make the audience engaged. Falls short of expectations.
Only Tollywood @Onlytollywood
Half way through #Sikandar. Pre-interval scene and the twist are
perfectly staged. @Samanthaprabhu2 oozes tons of glamour in Kan
Hari Krishna Raju @harikraju
They should not have opted for this screenplay... There is no
scope for hero elevation
Vidyut not impressive. Yuvan BGM and Santosh Sivan
cinematography was commendable
Udhaya Kumar @Udhayaviper
#Sikandar 1st Half Semma Twist .. Waiting For 2nd Half ..
Awesome Blockbuster Of The Year Bang Bang Bang
