To convincingly show the image makeover of a man who has been labelled a womaniser from the day of his birth (yes, you read it right) to that of a star, it takes a sensible script, mature and thought-provoking dialogues and some characters with depth. Pullikkaran Staraa attempts a tale of this genre with none of it, and without much effort, it offers disappointment in no time into the movie. ...Read full review

In short, he is that old. Rajakumaran is a native of Rajakumari, which is in Idukki. He is the most misunderstood character in his close-knit village. ...Read full review
When you try to merge goodness and social preach into a wafer thin plot, a movie like Pullikkaran Staraa is born. Some of the jokes are pretty similar to the ones we saw in Mammoottys interview with Mathukutty. ...Read full review

Mammootty essays the role of Raajakumaran with ease and scores heavily be it in humorous or emotional sequences. The sequences involving interaction between Raajakumaran and his students look convincing, just because of Mammootty. The story of Pullikkaran Staraa is rather plain and it doesnt have any surprises.Film revolves around this fabulous teacher trainer character and the events that happen after he joins a Government school in Ernakulam. The story takes a turn when two women from two different generations come across his life and change it for the better or worse. ...Read full review
