The Madurai portions have specificity and detailing with solid casting by Taran Bajaj – the hapless tutor who can’t get Sundareshwar’s nephew to learn his math tables was my favorite. But the writing and staging becomes broader when the narrative shifts to Bengaluru. Meenakshi Sundareshwar doesn’t realise its full potential but the film is sweet and undemanding enough.

If only the makers had cut it short by 15-20 minutes, Meenakshi Sundareshwar could have been more enjoyable. Discounting the dragging parts, Meenakshi Sundareshwar is worth a watch for it’s hatke subject of long-distance marriage, Sanya and Abhimanyu’s effective performances, Justin Prabhakaran’s fabulous soundtrack, and the right southern flavour for this Madurai and Bangalore based story.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Saibal Site:NDTV

Had the writing eschewed the laboured pre-climactic twists and demonstrated greater flair, Meenakshi Sundareshwar would not have, like its two principal characters, needed either divine intervention or the love of Rajinikanth for its marriage of intention and execution to work. The former outstrips the latter.Its inconsistencies and the inert stretches notwithstanding, Meenakshi Sundareshwar papers over at least some its flaws with its beguiling simplicity.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Shubhra Site:Indian Express

The trouble with playing an uninteresting character is that you can come off uninteresting. Abhimanyu is not given enough of an edge to rise above his standard-issue South Indian male about to jump into matrimony and money-that-he-will-earn-from-a-job. Malhotra fares better, even though she seems permanently dressed as if she’s off to a wedding. The thing between them is sweet but sporadic. More focus on what makes the pair tick, would have made this film a charmer from beginning to end.

Meenakshi Sundareshwar has many of its nuts and bolts in place, but is lost to poor writing and to direction that confuses uneventfulness with realism, made worse by the inexorable 2 hours and 21 minutes running time. Even its goal of upholding one of the fixtures of Indian culture – the arranged marriage – remains unmet since it has no compelling arguments to offer. If you are an advocate or fan of this institution, I would recommend the Hindi classic Char Diwari starring Nanda and Shashi Kapoor, which was about how a young wife is drawn into her new life with a family of strangers. That film worked even for a cynic like me. Meenakshi Sundareshwar is unconvincing, unexciting and flat.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Sukanya Site:Rediff

Wearing its charm lightly, Meenakshi Sundareshwar has the emotions of a coming-of-age, goals of a rom-com and the face of a heritage postcard. Though the characters are of Tamil Brahmin origin and exhibit a steady cultural vibe, eliminating stereotypical accents and lowbrow humour makes for a truly welcome change. Quite like Little Things, the disarming Web series on Netflix, Meenakshi Sundareshwar is attracted by the sweet, ordinary facets of a young couple’s connection.Essentially, Meenakshi Sundareshwar is a Basu Chatterjee slice-of-life packaged in a glossy ad film whose source of heart are its two genuinely likeable leads.

Thalaiva means ‘Leader’ and so the other intervention by “Rajini” is force fit simply to reach a denouement. And we are happy. Abhimanyu Dassani and Sanya Malhotra have zero chemistry and appear so unsure and unconvincing it almost feels like they are filling in and are a proxy for someone else. It’s a total snoozefest.
