Artistes’ Performances:

  • Keerthy Suresh nailed with her performance


  • Keerthy Suresh Performance

  • BGM

  • Interval Block


  • Unconvincing and Outdated Story

  • Weak Climax

  • Weak Direction


The trailer of penguin were very impressive and raised curiosity.The first half of the film doesn’t have much story and move comes to an interesting point at the interval. In the second half, the scene where the audience assume that the main pratogonist has found the culprit behind all these criminal activities , director Eashvar fails to engage the audience till the climax. The whole portion of the climax is highly disappointing. Despite, the film having lot of drawbacks, Keerthy suresh performance will keep us engage from beginning till end. Overall, Penguin is a movie that makes it a one time watch at home  if you don’t mind the lags and silly climax.
