Behindwoods Review – 2.5/5
Click for Full Review: On the whole, Aadhavan is trademark KSR cinema. It has action, comedy, sentiment, romance, music and masala, not to forget his special appearance at the end. There are flaws, missing pieces, loose ends and a stereotyped climax that might put you off, but commercial cinema is always prone to such errors. If you are not a stickler for logic or substance, there are quite a few positives to sit back and enjoyhttp://www.behindwoods.com/tamil-movie-reviews/reviews-2/aadhavan.html
