First half of #Padayottam is super. Black comedy and loving it. Superb casting and highly entertaining. Waiting for next half..!! #Padayottam - Highly entertaining first half followed by an average second half but ends with a high note. Black comedy which entertains mostly. Many laughable moments too - ***/5 #Padayottam - Chengal Raghu should be the elder brother of Shaji Pappan
