1.Jigarthanda Double X is an absolute MASTERPIECE, boasting a brilliant story and a marvellous screenplay by one of my favourite directors, Karthik Subbaraj. Raghava Lawrence delivers his best performance in a long time, and SJ Suryah, the ever-reliable Nadippu Arakkan, shines with top-notch acting as always. Karthik Subbaraj’s incorporation of real-life incidents, like betrayals and backstabbing towards Tamil community, is incredibly clever.

2.Jigarthanda Double X,” starring Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah, Karthik Subbaraj’s ‘Pandyaa Western’ film amalgamates the essence of the 2014 ‘Jigarthanda’ with the spirit of a spaghetti western, marking it as his most political and heartfelt work to date.

3.It is ecstatic to know they still make such movies amidst the Leos and Jailers.. Hats off to the director and entire Crew for giving such a spectacle

4.Jigarthanda DoubleX
Directed by Karthik subburaj is a mastercraft from a master director and crew. This is a movie in which the actors performance were overshadowed by the directors making and writing. Yes, both Raghava Lawrence and Sj Suryah’s performance is splendid as always.Especially Sj Suryah, unlike his previous films in this film we can see him as the one of the main heros and he utilised it very effiectively. Nimisha Sajayan has also did her job very well.

5.I had kept my very minimal expectations just for the fact that it looked similar to Jigar-1 during the trailer phase and Lawrence’s addition to the cast. To my surprise, K.S. nailed the story & screenplay. It is the same content from a different perspective, which has presented the importance of documentary and proven the love, passion, and obsession K.S. has on cinema.
