#SakalakalaVallavan is harmless and entertaining & sometimes, that's all a movie needs to be!
#SakalakalaVallavan is a laugh-riot. Just the right balance of comedy, action and emotions. A second consecutive HIT for @actor_jayamravi

#SakalakalaVallavan - 2/5. Outdated,typical 70's 80's crass masala mix . The laugh is on the audiences. Low brow comedy, too long.
#SakalakalaVallavan - 2/5. Soori gets slapped by everybody,Rajendran shouts @Actor_Vivek is ok, @actor_jayamravi is earnest but film is not
#SakalakalaVallavan: The best thing about it is that it isnt as horrible as Alex Pandian. Well, they could have left that title alone.
#SakalakalaVallavan: Regular fare. Few good comics, flashy costumes, a sizable cast and some sleaze constitute this typical Suraaj film.
Pissed with the high level of women objectification in #SakalakalaVallavan. There is even a scene where Soori advices Ravi to beat up Trisha
Maybe that's why Hari is considered a step above all the commercial directors in this age. Even his worst films respect women very well.
Average Ratings Given by Audience: 2.5

#Sakalakalavallavan 1st half - Very clichéd, sparsely entertaining .. Depends on #Soori's presence & #Anjali's glam factor. Testing !!
Seeing #Sakalakalavallavan - #Anjali a nalla vechu senjrukaanga!! In the Sadhigaari song, her costumes are damn skimpy .. U certificate vera
Watching #SakalakalaVallavan in #Satyam @Chennai. Feeling existing @actor_jayamravi bro @trishtrashers and @yoursanjali

#SakalakalaVallavan - A brash,stale movie like this doesn't add any value to the career graphs of actors such as #JayamRavi #Trisha #Anjali.
yoursanjali Pls dont choose movies like #SakalakalaVallavan . You have proved urself as a fine actress. Why turn to such glamour! Gud luck
#SakalakalaVallavan - Swimming scene and cycling scene in #JayamRavi - #Anjali romance!! Hmm !! Director nalla feel panirkaaru. #Glamour
#SakalakalaVallavan - B C centers may go watch it.. But for the betterment of the industry, it is better that such films don't happen often
#SakalakalaVallavan -Avoidable. Just a few laughs here and there. Fails to work despite the presence of leading actors. As old as it can get
#SakalakalaVallavan - A typical Suraaj premise which has space for all the commercial ingredients. Ravi's liveliness is the USP. #Interval
Just watched #Sakalakalavallavan Time pass entertainer Jayam ravi Soori Rajendran Vivek rocks :) @trishtrashers looks Stunning & cute
Watched an early screening of #SakalakalaVallavan. 1.75/5. Another wasted product from Suraj, who fails to leave minimum impact.

#SakalakalaVallavan Full length comedy entertainer wit superb timing frm Soori & @actor_jayamravi combo. @Actor_Vivek does a cracker cameo^2
#SakalakalaVallavan Rajendran is at his usual best. @yoursanjali fits her role perfectly. Prabhu & Radha Ravi does their part perfectly
#SakalakalaVallavan @trishtrashers in a dfrnt role frm usual soft roles she had played #AngryBird v T compliments wit her neat performance
#SakalakalaVallavan comes wit a good message of how a couple shud live complimenting each other even with their differences. @lmmiltd
#SakalakalaVallavan First half is fast paced while 2nd half is cliched and drags towards the end. Songs are colourful and tap worthy.

#SakalakalaVallavan first half : Simply waste, erotic #Anjali throughout & best part is censor board has certified an 'U' certificate
Halfway through the film, Patrons have just walked out of screen! #SakalakalaVallavan #Appatakkar #AlexPandian scenario repeats.
@amarnath708 only #Anjali is worth watching a 'BIT' #SakalakalaVallavan #Appatakkar
