In this action thriller film, a magician and a doctor attempt to solve a healthcare threat that is looming large over the country and in the process expose the corruption in the Indian medical industry.

Atlee seems to be a person with great taste. More than the story, the screenplay of Mersal, it is the packaging that impresses the most. Few scenes are terrifying and slightly on the gory side which justifies the U/A certificate issued for the film. ...Read full review
Vettri (Vijay with rippling muscles) can flick playing cards that carry the lethality of a sharpened knife; his magical contraptions do not stop defying logic even before a sophisticated audience everything is part of an elaborate plan to plunge a long sword into the heart of an Indian doctor who is the symbol of corporate healthcare centres that put money over medical service. ...Read full review
Director Atlees Mersal is a perfect star vehicle for Vijay. He has not just exploited Vijays stardom to deliver a flamboyant crowd-pleaser (which he did in Theri already) but has fleshed out an interesting script that plays up the best onscreen traits of the actor. ...Read full review
There can be no doubt that Mersal is a story written for actor Vijay. Each frame, dialogue, action and reaction celebrates the actor, and what he does best. Vijay is better off when he spews dialogue with restraint. Not loud, but he levels off well with SJ Suryah, who is a theatrical foil. ...Read full review
Like other star vehicles, Atlee uses the pause-and-play technique for Vijay`s introduction. Mersal begins with the usual fanfare, where the police arrest Maaran (Vijay) for a murder, which also reminds us of Rajinikanth`s Sivaji. ...Read full review
Amidst all hullabaloo and uncertainty, `Mersal` finally hits the theaters this Deepavali.

Does it live up to the expectations? ...Read full review
Tamil Cinema and Tamilnadu politics are pretty interconnected. The heroes there pitch their political stand through the character they play and thats why we have seen many heroes playing the same old savior of the public kind of roles in all the main stream masala films. ...Read full review
With Mersal (Astonishment), director Atlee continues with his mission to simultaneously giganticise and deflavourise beloved older films. If Raja Rani was an overblown Mouna Raagam and Theri was a watered-down Chatriyan, Mersal is Aboorva Sagotharargal remade as a mass movie2. I know what youre thinking. ...Read full review
In a lot of ways, Mersal looks and feels like Rajinikanth`s Sivaji, especially at the beginning. Four seemingly random people are abducted from around Chennai (arguably more Ramana than Sivaji). The cops get a tip that the suspect is hiding out at a location in Triplicane. As they swoop in, mustering as much undercover mojo as they can manage, you catch a sight of Vijay walking in. Obviously, his back is to the camera. ...Read full review
`Mersal` is an all important film in Vijay`s career as his last outing `Bhairavaa` failed at the box office and this is also an acid test for Atlee whether he can score a blockbuster hat-trick. The result is that the Thalapathy scroes three times his mass and Atlee delivers once again. ...Read full review
