Bogan finally gets to release this week. The much anticipated thriller had suffered multiple delays in release, the latest reason being the Jallikattu controversy. Thani Oruvan duo Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy return to mesmerise the audiences, while Hansika Motwani plays the female lead. Her chemistry with Jayam Ravi was very sizzling but it is Arvind Swamy's villainous act that has kept us quite interested about this Lakshmanan directorial.
And just as expected, critics are going gaga over his performance, while Jayam Ravi also getting some fair share of attention. However, not many are impressed with the movie's narrative. Here are what major websites are saying about the movie:
"Overall, Bogan is worthy of a watch for its new theme, rich visuals and music, fantastic performances by Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy and fine making by Laxman. Go out and enjoy in theatres."
"Some good scenes and dialogues show Ravi in top form too but somehow the edge belongs to Arvind Swamy, whose swagger and ease at mouthing those loud lines come off as an applause-worthy surprise to his otherwise ‘good guy’ image — one that changed with Thani Oruvan. What a ball he has had here playing the baddie!"

"Jayam Ravi with his scrubbed clean look and sincerity fits in comfortably as the honest cop, while Arvind Swamy as Aditya is flashy, outgoing, essaying his role with aplomb. On the positive side, the film has a great look. Imman's songs are peppy and the picturisation aesthetic. A couple of the earlier stunt-chase scenes are ably executed. And the screen chemistry between Ravi and Hansika make their romantic interludes a pleasant watch. Varun as Vikram's junior gets his space and leaves his mark. It was a film expected with some anticipation. But 'Bogan' disappoints."
"Thani Oruvan duo, Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swamy, have taken their hide-and-seek game to a new level in Bogan. Like their previous outing, the latest fantasy action film packs enough surprises to keep the audience engaged till the end."
"Both Arvind Swami and Jayam Ravi rock the floor with their towering screen presence. Hansika, on the other hand looks bubbly and adds to the glamour quotient. Soundarajan's hard work in the cinematography department can be noted. D Imman's background music thrusts the movie upwards. "
"The only feature that redeems Bogan from sinking into the water that we find the evil palm leaf land at the end is performance. Swami has always been a good actor, having been introduced to Tamil cinema by no less a director than Mani Ratnam in Thalapathi."
