`Who IS Richie?` That`s the quest on which a journalist (Shraddha Srinath) embarks on, to find out the real virtue of the man who is different things to different people. Kaka Peter (Kumaravel) sees Richie (Nivin Pauly) as a hireling of gangster Isaac Annachi, (GK Reddy, whose snow-white fake beard makes him seem like Santa), at whose hands he almost met his death. ...Read full review
Nivin Pauly, in his maiden Tamil outing Richie, doesnt arrive with much fanfare as many wouldve expected. He instead chooses to make an assured debut in a role thats not easy to pull off and hard to define. Agreed, he gets to walk in slow-motion a few times, dance to popular Rajinikanth songs and smoke stylishly, but theres nothing heroic about his character to make us celebrate his arrival. ...Read full review

There is a scene where Richie and his father (Prakash Raj) are having a conversation at the church. Prakash Raj is a pastor and Nivin waits for him to step out, his profile perfectly aligned with the spine of the Cross. As Prakash Raj steps in, they take the opposite sides of the cross Ritchie on the right (pun intended). ...Read full review
Nivin Pauly was long due in Tamil cinema, he falls in line with many Malayalam actors who have good connection in Kollywood, but he has an even bigger responsibility as it was not his Tamil film that ran for 250 days, it was Premam a Malayalam flick. As a romantic lad in Premam to a henchman in Richie, it is obvious Nivin wanted a strong yet creative content in his debut. ...Read full review
Say what you will about Richie, but theres no denying that it is a product of much deliberation, much thought. The most obvious talking point is how its a treasure trove of Biblical references. The film begins with the narration of a mythical story of two friends. ...Read full review
