Murugadas captured the real talent in Chiranjeevi to the optimum size and as he rightly said, the message given in Tagore is good to watch only. But the message given in this film could be followed by the people for the betterment of the society in general.
First half of the film is pretty mediocre as there is no conflict thread in terms of villain. Second half is better from the moment villain enters the scene. The last 20 minutes of the film stands out with very good emotions. There are ups and downs in the film with logic missing in some scenes.
The human element of altruism deserves an appreciation. Stalin stands as an example of how a good climax can change the fortune of a film. Stalin is worth a watch for humanitarian aspect and an emotional climax.
