“Alternates between the massy and the trashy but it does so with unapologetic flair… For a high-octane drama that centres on crime and vengeance, Mahaan is sparing in its use of action sequences but the ones that are mounted bear an unmistakable Karthik Subbaraj stamp.”

Rating: 2.5 stars | Full review

“At several points, I wondered if the film would have worked better as a comic book… Instead of the gangster saga that it is, I wish it had been a satirical comedy on Gandhism, and a man caught in the middle of an uptight family, and his adventures without their knowledge. If only Karthik would break his rigid rule about dragging gangsters into every idea he has!”

“Of all the sideways tributes to Mahatma Gandhi, this one has to be the most spirited… At any rate, the gangsters are certainly having more fun in the movie than anybody else. Their camaraderie, loyalty and personal moral code bring to mind not one of the aphorisms attributed to Mahatma Gandhi but the line from Bob Dylan’s song Absolutely Sweet Marie: “But to live outside the law, you must be honest.””
