#49O - 1st Half : Vintage #Goundamani is bk with his occasional sarcastic humour.. But the subject is heavy-duty and dry farmers land issue
#49O [2.5/5] : Deals with the topical issue of farmers being exploited by Politicians - Real Estate Developers nexus.. Not much humour..
#49O [2.5/5]: #Goundamani has tried his best with his trademark sarcastic humour.. Dir hasn't provided him da apt script.. Movie falls flat

#49O movie review - 2.25 / 5
Watch it for #Goundamani, the political satire element and its good intent.
A noteworthy showcase of farmers' plight after #Kaththi, along with #Goundamani's satire
Not very gripping but earns some points for its motive & the end msg abt the 49-O rule
At 76, #Goundamani still has it, and carries the movie ably. Grt energy for his age
