Tamilrockers have leaked a pirated version of Tamil movie Devarattam that released on May 1. This is a huge blow for Gautham Karthik and Manjima Mohan starrer, as the reviews of the film have not been great either. All attempts to curb the illegal activities of the piracy website Tamilrockers are going in vain and day after day, there are more and more films leaked online, be it Bollywood, Hollywood or South. Last year, the Madras High Court even directed internet service providers to block 12000 websites. Not surprising that more than 2000 of these sites were operated by Tamilrockers.
Times of India found the film boring and wrote, "One needless fight, one needless romantic song, one needless comedy, one needless pathos song, one mandatory fight – that’s how one has to describe the second half of this unimaginative film. In the name of formula, Muthaiya keeps giving us clichés making a film that is just over two hours seem incredibly long and boring."
"Devarattam is yet another Tamil film that uses rape/sexual assault as a ploy to take the story forward. The film comes at a time when the disturbing Pollachi incident is still fresh in our minds. Brutality can be shown in two ways -- by mere representation and glorifying it. The scenes involving a rape survivor are problematic and makes you wonder if filmmakers are running out of ideas," writes The Hindu.
About the individual performances, Deccan Chronicle writes, "Gautham Karthik looks fit and delivers in action blocks. Sadly, projecting him as mass macho man who takes on innumerous thugs single handedly is unbelievable. Manjima Mohan as the romantic interest of Gautham who appears in almost an extended cameo has no scope to perform. Thankfully, Vijayan doesn’t ham and has underplayed his menacing act. Other villains are adequate. There’s nothing new in Soori’s comedy."
