"Kamadipattam" is so so so brilliant.. A slow burn gangster film almost like "Once upon a time in America(Kerala)" outstanding actors too. "Kamadipattam" is running with English subtitles,don't miss it. One of the best gangster/brotherhood films from India . Rajeev Ravi-the boss

Actor-turned-filmmaker Vineeth Sreenivasan has also appreciated the performance of Dulquer, Manikandan, Shine Tom Chacko, and adds that it is the face of Ganga, played by Vinayakan, that haunts him. He has also lauded the sound department of the film and has requested the audience to watch the film in theatre for a good cinematic experience. "If u r ready to spend ur money for a different cinematic experience, this movie is definitely worth a try [sic[," Vineeth posted on his Facebook page.

Kammatipaadam has its heart at the right place.. The most beautiful thing about this movie is the level of performance it has captured.. many actors have performed brilliantly in the film. I felt so happy to see Shine Tom Chacko in a significant role. i have worked with Shine in two films and he is such a hard working guy.. He definitely had a rough phase in between, but it's great to see him back. There is a new actor in the film, i think his name is Manikantan. He was brilliant. Dulquer, as usual, was good. But after the film, the face that haunts me is Ganga's. Vinayakan is truly a revelation.Rajeev Ravi has brought the best out of him.

You might hear all sorts of things about this film. That it's long, it's slow, it's good in parts etc.. etc.. etc.. But if u r ready to spend ur money for a different cinematic experience, this movie is definitely worth a try.

And if u have the option, pls watch this film in a theatre with good sound quality; because the sound dept has done an amazing job.

Psychologist and actress Parvathi T, who was last seen in Ranjith-Biju Menon's "Leela," has also complimented the team of "Kammatipaadam" for giving her an experience that she will never forget and for teaching that one should not be judgemental towards anyone. The actress has given five stars to the movie and even thanked Rajeev Ravi for making the film and leaving her speechless.

‪#‎Kammattipadam‬ is a one of a kind cinema experience! A true n intense realistic drama that narrates the tale of the once green Kammatipadam and a few men who lived there in pursuit of their grit, bravery n brotherhood. Where they stood a couple of decades back, and where they stand today amidst the maddening unscientific growth of a city, where money n business stand tall, is what the movie tells you. Always loved the way Rajeev sketches his characters n their relationships in movies.. love, friendship, brotherhood, any n everything looks so real n intense in his safe hands! One of Dulquer's finest performances till date. Manikandan Achari as Balan was a true revelation and no words to describe the class act by Vinayakan as Gangan, hats off! The whole cast deserves a huge applause. Happy to see these kinda movies in malayalam. Congrats to the whole crew and truely proud of u ‪#‎RajeevRavi‬ .. Kammattipadam is a must watch for serious movie lovers..

Dulquer Salmaan - I am so proud and happy to see ur growth as an actor in Kammatipaadam!! Krishnan will be a land mark in ur career :)
Rajeev Ravi - I have my personal difference of opinion with your previous work as a director!! But you nailed Kammatipaadam, full on respect to you sir!
Manikandan, Vinayakan, Vinay Forrt, Amalda Lizz and rest of the actors and crew - polichu adakki, onnum parayaan ellaa!!
Censor Board - there was more blood and gore in Theevram and you guys gave me a 'U' certificate!!
Kammatipaadam being a realistic movie with no blood shed and minimum violence (which is a necessary tool to convey this kind of story), you guys certified a 'A' certificate!!
Please go climb a tree and fry an egg!! Bcos we audience really don't care about ur idiotic certification, we understand cinema much better than u Buffoons!!
